The Lego designers have developed with Piaggio engineers a special building set dedicated to Vespa 125, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the model.

Lego winks again to a community of adult global fans, like the recent Fender Stratocaster set and the legendary Volkswagen Van.

The new Lego Vespa 125 kit consists of 1,106 bricks and measures over 8.5 in. (22 cm) high, 13.5 in. (35 cm) long and 4.5 in. (12 cm) wide. Finishing touches include the Vespa logo, a classic 1960s Italian licence plate, a spare wheel, helmet and an accessories basket with flower bouquet. The model, presented in pastel blue, recalls the original production color of the 1960s Vespa.

Care for details is obsessive, as usual. Like the original model, this brick-built Vespa features a front wheel mounted on one side, 2 seats, a removable engine cover with a brick-built engine underneath, and working steering.

The model has launched on February 24th in the beautiful setting of the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera, near Florence, by two true italian experts on two wheels: Guido Meda and Vera Spadini.

And in occasion of Milan Fashion Week, passers-by and enthusiasts can see the Lego Vespa 125 in 1: 1 scale, in the pop-up that has been set up in Montenapoleone street, the heart of fashion in Milan.
