Is Top Gear’s the Stig teasing a new LEGO Technic set?

A new video released on the LEGO Technic social media channels is either promoting 42109 App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car or teasing a new set.

Last year, the LEGO Group and Top Gear teamed up to release 42109 App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car, a buildable remote control car. A new LEGO Technic video clip shared on Facebook sees Top Gear’s the Stig breaking into the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark. The Stig drives into Billund in a Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Like Peter Schmeichel in the recent Creator Expert 10272 Old Trafford – Manchester United video, the mysterious test driver is taking on a secret agent type role. The video may just be promoting 42109 App-Controlled Top Gear Rally Car, but given the text “What is he up to? ? Stay tuned to find out!”, it may be the first in a series of teases for a new licensed Technic set.

The BBC Top Gear team collaborated with the LEGO Technic design team to develop the 463 piece set. The CONTROL+ app will feature functions including steering, multi-touch control and gyro control. Challenges and achievements to unlock will encourage continued play with the car.
