We’re no strangers to Lego here at Petrolicious, so seeing another one of our favorite vehicles finally immortalized in plastic blocks makes us wish—just a bit—that we were 5 years old again and the Caterham Seven was going to be released in time for the holidays.

What’s great about Lego is its Ideas forum, where amateur builders—like Malte Dorowski, whom we recently profiled—can highlight their skills in order to have an official Lego set issued. Along the way, Lego will often cheer on or highlight promising projects—why wouldn’t the company support its best fans, right?

Once a project reaches 10,000 supporters, the company can approve to manufacture the kit, which is how this pretty Lego Caterham Seven came to be. Builder Carl Greatrix says it’s his “kit of a kit car,” a saying that goes some way to explaining how accurately the car was able to be modeled in plastic blocks!

According to Lego in an official post, it’s working on the final production kit, with details to follow.
