Caterham makes some of the craziest cars on the road. Or, to be specific, sells you components to let you make some of the craziest cars on the road. The company's evolutions of the original Lotus Seven are only available in the US as kit cars. Which means if you want the hardcore Caterham 620R, you'll need plenty of money and time to install the engine and transmission. There's an easier way to get the bonkers 620R at a lower price, though. Lego has new 771-piece kit for its version of 620R, which you can actually put together in their home. And while it's just a model, the kit is a lot cheaper than the real thing at $79.99.

The 620 R kit isn't as intricate or as large as the 2,704-piece one for the Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS, but it's still an impressive recreation. Legos make it hard to recreate the complex curves of automotive bodywork, but the company has done an amazing job with the 620R's straightforward design. Once built, the model is three inches tall, 11 inches long, and five inches wide, making it the perfect size for any desk.

In traditional Lego fashion, the kit includes all of the incredible details that make the 620R special. The 620R's 2.0-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine, removable nose, gear stick, functioning steering wheel, engine cover, usable trunk, and axle stands are all accounted for.

The idea was spawned by Carl Greatrix's, a British enthusiast who is fond of the Caterham, who built an unofficial model that received roughly 10,000 votes through Lego's Ideas website. There's no word on whether the model will be available with different colors, but we want to see it in Caterham Green.
