LEGO expands Volkswagen partnership to launch LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van

The LEGO Group has struck up a partnership with the German car manufacturer Volkswagen to launch the latest version of the ubiquitous LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van, expanding upon its portfolio of cult vehicle LEGO builds.

The new LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van is based on its namesake of the late 1960s and ’70s and succeeds the previous LEGO Creator Expert Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, adding a whole host of new features, including a scaled up build and a new paint colour, sliding doors, as well as the trademark T2 wraparound baywindow front windscreen.

Under the hood, the set also features working steering. The LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van’s detailed camping interior is also fully equipped for the open road, with opening cabinets, fridge, sink and a gas stove with a teapot. The set even comes with a set of folding chairs and a surfboard.

Volkswagen Campers are of course synonymous with customisation, and the LEGO Volkswagen T2 Camper Van set is fully prepared for personalisation, with a sticker set including retro decals and a choice of German or US number plates.
