PEUGEOT 9×8 Hypercar Coming from LEGO® Technic

The LEGO® Group recently announced the PEUGEOT 9×8 hypercar is coming this May to the Technic lineup. Recreated in 1:10 scale, this model is smaller than other Technic car models like the Lamborghini Sian and Ferrari Daytona (both 1:8 scale). Despite its smaller size and brick count, the model still boasts precise-scale four wheel drive and 7 speed transmission. Additionally, designers recreated the car’s interesting doors and included glow-in-the-dark elements. You can look forward to more detail about this set in Frank’s upcoming, pre-release review. For now, let’s take a look at the details from the press release.

Our technical cooperation with the LEGO Group started in January 2022, 5 months before the PEUGEOT 9X8 reveal. It took one year to fully develop the project with the technical and design teams, allowing us to directly transpose the technical details of the PEUGEOT 9X8 to the LEGO Technic model. It was very important for both brands to create a model that is as realistic as possible. PEUGEOT, Peugeot Sport and the LEGO teams had numerous meetings about the development of the suspension and hybrid systems that cannot be replicated from photos. We thank the LEGO Group for this project, we are very proud and impressed by the final result that is more than we could have imagined.

While smaller in size that the Lamborghini Sian and Ferrari Daytona, the PEUGEOT looks to be about the same size as the Technic Batmobile. This new car reportedly measures 50 cm (19.5″) long, 22 cm (9″) wide, and 13 cm (5″) high, which actually makes it slightly larger than the Batmobile. As mentioned before, we’ve got a pre-release review of this coming, so stay tuned for more details. Will you pick up the PEUGEOT 9×8? Let me know in the comments below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
