All the features of the new LEGO® VW camper van that make it just as good as the real thing
Before Sven Franic was a designer at the LEGO Group, he was a car mechanic. Tinkering under hood after hood, he thought only about one thing. To set off on the open road in an old-school Volkswagen campervan. In 2011, that wish came true when he bought Vincent, a light blue 1978 Volkswagen T2 camper van. Vincent is now firmly a part of the family and they haven’t looked into the rear-view mirror since.
Now, ten years later, the love he has for Vincent helped inspire our latest vehicle set. Preceded by the mega-popular 2011 LEGO® T1 VW Camper Van, the new, much-anticipated 1970s-style Volkswagen T2 model comes with all the same playfulness of the T1, but with some added 70s road-trip vibes – and in a larger scale.
As lead designer on the project and a big VW fan, Sven takes us through his inspiration and some of the set’s most spectacular features…
