If you need to do some heavy hauling of Lego bricks then the Volvo 6×6 Technic kit might be just the thing for your plastic construction needs. It even supports the company’s Control+ app which lets one drive the rig with realistic looking gauges. This model costs $249.99 and is available now.
This kit is modeled after the Volvo A60H Articulated Hauler. It has 2193 pieces. When finished, this heavy hauling rig measures approximately 24 inches (61 centimeters) long, 9 inches (23 centimeters) wide and 8 inches (22 centimeters) high.
Model details include a six-cylinder engine under the hood and a functional automatic transmission. The dump section tilts upwards to dump whatever the player is hauling. Trucks can move forward, backward, steer and change gears in the app. Operation comes from three motors with a Bluetooth controller and six AA batteries.
Lego reserves its Technic line for large, detailed models which often have extra features not available in smaller kits. For example, there’s a 1:8 scale Ferrari Daytona SP3 from early 2022. It comprises 3,778 pieces, and the finished car measures about 23 inches (59 centimeters) long. Includes a functional eight-speed sequential gearbox. The V12 engine has a moving piston. The suspension is fully functional, and the butterfly doors open.
The Daytona SP3 retails for $399.99, and Lego recommends this model for builders 18 and up. The company also released the book for $79.99 Lego Technic Ferrari Daytona SP3: The Taste of Perfection which includes the conceptualization, design, and production of this model.
The division also launched the McLaren Formula One car kit with 1,432 pieces and a price of $179.99. They are about 25.5 inches (65 centimeters) long. It’s big enough to include features like an engine with moving pistons, a working differential, a working suspension and steerable wheels.
