LEGO has teamed up with Land Rover to create a Classic Land Rover Defender 90 set in celebration of 75 years of the British automaker.

The 32cm-long LEGO model comes with crazy accessories including a roof rack, raised air intake, and front bumper with a working winch.

The set has a two-in-one format, allowing builders to create an everyday road-ready model or customize it for adventures.

It features side rails, a toolbox, plus traction plates for crossing mud and sand.

It also has working steering and suspension, opening doors and hood, and an interior with details based on the full-size Classic Defender.

To launch the set, LEGO placed a real Classic Defender in the Scottish Highlands and used it to house the hardest-to-reach LEGO Store in the world.

That was the scene for a challenge, with adventurers Raha Moharrak and Aldo Kane racing to be the first to find and build the new set.

The Classic Land Rover Defender 90 set is available from April 1 in LEGO stores and online, priced at $239.99.

The Classic Land Rover Defender 90 set isn’t the first time LEGO has created a high-scale example of an iconic car.

In fact, there are a ton of other LEGO car sets you can buy.

Here are some of the best out there…
