This LEGO Fiat 500 has us wishing for our summer holidays

This recreation of the 60s icon is sunshine in LEGO form.

There’s always excitement when LEGO releases a new set, especially when it comes to their Creator Expert collection - the most complex and technical of them all.

The team behind it always seem to have a way of choosing just the set we didn’t know we need - from this massive 3,898 piece Old Trafford to their new adorable Fiat 500.

It may only be 960 pieces (which for Creator Expert is practically child’s play) but it has every detail from the real vehicle you could possibly imagine.

Based on the 1960s Fiat 500F, you can open the back hatch to reveal the rear-mounted engine, roll back the roof and pretend you’re driving through lush Italian countryside and there’s even a gear lever, handbrake and reclining front seats.
It comes in a bright sunshine yellow and there’s even a detachable suitcase, easel and paintbrush for when you want to take up your new career of being an artist.
Essentially, you can live your holiday dreams with this set, while sitting in grey and drizzly London. What’s not to love? Except, you know, actually driving one in glorious Italian sunshine (sorry).
The LEGO Creator Fiat 500 is available now for £74.99, with the first sets due to be shipped out on 12 March.
