He has outsmarted fans for years by keeping his identity under wraps but can the Stig evade capture when he infiltrates the LEGO Headquarters in Billund, Denmark, at night?

A new video released today shows the lengths that the Stig goes to so he can get his hands on the LEGO® Technic™ App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car and escape without being unmasked.

Footage captured shows the mystery racing driver teasing security as he designs and builds his own LEGO® Technic™ App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car in the home of the LEGO Group in Denmark – before exiting at speed in a Porsche 911 GT3 RS towards the Top Gear test track.

“The LEGO® Technic™ App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car was designed to be the perfect car for the Stig, but it’s only an eighth of the size of cars he is used to driving. Let’s see if his talent on the test track translates to awesome manoeuvres when controlling the car using the LEGO® Technic™ CONTROL+ App.” said LEGO Technic designer Samuel Tacchi.

Slide behind the wheel and take control of this cool LEGO® Technic™ App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car. Built from 463 pieces and controlled using the LEGO® Technic™ CONTROL+ app, you’ll discover a host of neat functions, including realistic sounds and real-time feedback. Take on challenges, earn achievements and access inspirational Top Gear content.

Watch the video and see if you can match the Stig’s steering skills once you’ve built your own LEGO® Technic™ App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car.

The LEGO® Technic™ App Controlled Top Gear Rally Car available now at LEGO.com in-store and online.
