Ever wondered what The Stig would look like as a Disney Pixar Cars movie franchise character? So did the LEGO Group…
One of the world’s leading toy manufacturers has joined forces with the world’s biggest animation studio and the world’s biggest motoring entertainment show to produce a thrilling short film telling the story of Lightning McQueen’s trip to Top Gear’s test track outside London, where the star of Cars fulfills his dream of racing The Stig around the iconic circuit.
And for the first time ever, Top Gear’s tame racing driver is imagined in LEGO® form – fittingly as a car – and is joined by other Cars movie characters Cruz Ramirez and Mater.
The LEGO Group designed and made the Stig Car exclusively for the promotional video and the content was produced by the Danish-based toymaker and the Top Gear team at BBC Studios.
