Pastel blue was chosen to match early Vespas and its era is further highlighted by the 1960s licence plate and classic logo. Adding some contrasting colour is the bunch of flowers in the basket. There’s also a removable engine cover.
‘Working with the Vespa team to create this stunning automotive masterpiece was an incredible experience,’ says LEGO Senior Designer Florian Muller. ‘Recreating the details of the original model to celebrate the classic 1960s Vespa was one of my favourite parts of designing this set. The set offered me a chance to step back in time and let my imagination flow while designing, and we hope the experience is the same for fans.’
‘Working with the LEGO Group was an extraordinary experience, because it brought two dreams – the LEGO brand and Vespa – together, which have the unlimited expressive potential that they offer their fans in common,’ says Head of the Piaggio Group Design Centre Marco Lambri. ‘Two outstanding brands able to span different ages, always able to reinvent themselves because they have the capacity to unite and to build in their DNA. As designers, the challenge was to have the soft shapes of Vespa coexist with the form of LEGO bricks, a challenge I believe we met with flying colours.’
