The original design is by Carl Greatrix, and as an avid Lego kit designer, he added the kit on the Lego community for review, where 10,000 supporting votes were required before Lego even considered it. He got the votes, Lego liked the idea, and a year or so later... here we go - they've made it into the product that's on the shelves today.

BUILD TIME LAPSE VIDEO
For those of you that just can't wait to get hold of one, and fancy seeing how it's built, please see the video below. I was going to do my own video, but wanted to just enjoy building the kit, so here's another video I've found on YouTube:-
It took around 2 hours to assemble all 771 parts, and was good fun too, but I was going as fast as I could to get it finished this evening, so I'm sure if you took your time you could get three or four hours of building pleasure out of the kit... And... all in typical Lego (certainly not Caterham :-)) fashion all the parts were there too!
Here are a couple of pictures of the finished article:-

I'm sure they'll sell plenty - dare I say it, a perfect Christmas present!
