It's almost Christmas and you need a gift for a beloved family member, or you just want to treat yourself with something that will not empty your bank account entirely. The following automotive themed LEGO sets will keep you engaged with hours of construction and will serve as a memorable artefact in your bedroom or office. The online availability of these products may vary depending on your location, so if a product said to be "out of stock" online do check with your local LEGO store.

10. Top Gear Rally Car - $129.99 or £124.99

As amazing as this set is, there is a slight problem: it will only be available from Boxing Day onwards (26th December), meaning it will be a bit of a late Christmas gift. This is an RC vehicle that can be controlled via the LEGO Technic CONTROL+ app. Yes, this battery-powered rally car steers and provides realtime feedback in the app. It's an aesthetically-pleasing and fun vehicle but not exactly the most exciting to build as it only has 463 pieces.

9. Rally Car - $109.99 or £80.12

This tri-coloured rally car will make a fine addition to the bookshelf or desk of almost any World Rallycross fan. LEGO have done more than just slapped on a few stickers and a roll cage to a racing car; it features low-profile tyres, racing seats and a stiffened suspension. The V6 engine even has moving pistons! The relatively small count of 1000 pieces is compensated for with the ability to convert the rally car into a buggy, making it a 2-in-1 set.

UK - Discontinued on the website unfortunately, you can access the product online through Amazon UK by clicking here.

8. Volkswagen Beetle - $99.99 or £74.99

The Beetle is better value than the Rally Car with 1167 pieces and greater level of detail, featuring stickers on the rear windscreen and an accessible air-cooled engine. The roof and cooler box can be removed should you prefer a cleaner look. This set is not only aesthetically pleasing but also pretty special as the Beetle is one of the most important vehicles in automotive history.

7. Volkswagen T1 Camper Van - $119.99 or £84.99

This 1962 Volkswagen Camper Van is a strong purchase with 1334 pieces and immense level of detail. It features a "splittie" safari windshield, textile curtains, folding furniture and an accessible boxer engine. Think of this set as a slightly larger and more detailed alternative to the Beetle mentioned previously.

6. Ford Mustang - $149.99 or £119.99

Barely acceptable with 1471 pieces but epic when it comes to aesthetics, this 1967 Ford Mustang is a must when it comes to LEGO. The doors, trunk and hood are accessible whilst all of the model designation badges are included as expected. However, the coolest part is that the vehicle comes with customisable extras in the form of a supercharger, nitrous oxide tank, ducktail spoiler, side-exit exhausts and a front splitter. Yes, you can turn your Mustang into something absolutely wild should you wish.

5. London Bus - $139.99 or £109.99

The double-decker bus is of better value than the Mustang with its 1686 pieces and equally stunning exterior. The roof is removable and there are a few different advertising posters you can choose from to set the time period, my personal favourite being the "high tea requires quality biscuits". The interior is so accurate that it even features the spiral staircase and an empty drink can tossed to the side. You can access the engine bay of the vehicle but it's not exactly a mind-blowing sight.

4. James Bond's DB5 - $149.99 or £129.99

This eye-dazzling Aston Martin DB5 is the same vehicle that starred in Goldfinger, featuring an ejector seat, wheel-mounted tyre scythes, revolving number plates and secret machine guns. Though it only has 1295 pieces, the aesthetics of this set are incredible; everything from the interior to the engine bay. You are paying a premium for the Bond and Aston Martin licensing so this is really a set for individuals who love both of those things; then again, who doesn't?

3. Land Rover Defender - $199.99 or £159.99

Whether or not you like the new Defender, there is no denying that this is one epic set. Your money is well spent with 2573 pieces and ludicrous levels of detail, from the interior to the engine bay; even the steering wheel says Defender! The inline-6 engine includes moving pistons, the steering works, the roof rack is removable, the winch is functional, what else could you want?

2. Porsche 911 RSR - $149.99 or £139.99

You may recall the orange LEGO Porsche 911 GT3 RS; it's a now-retired LEGO product. It was also quite expensive too, sitting at £339.99 for just 2704 pieces. I will still link it below should you wish to check the product out on Amazon. This RSR is the next best thing and better value, featuring a reasonable 1580 pieces and a crazy amount of stickers. It does not feature as much playable gadgety as the Defender as this is more of an artistic masterpiece for one to appreciate.

1. Bugatti Chiron - $349.99 or £329.99

This is undoubtedly one of the coolest sets of all time and it's for the LEGO lunatic who already owns most of the above. Everything about this Chiron is extraordinary, from the unboxing experience to the ludicrous attention to detail. The set features a fully functional 8-speed gear box and active rear wing, which can only be adjusted using a LEGO Bugatti key. The instructions are said to mirror the way a real Chiron is manufactured, allowing you to appreciate the level of engineering and craftsmanship that goes into Bugatti's vehicles. Then again, at $350 it better be nothing short of perfect.

  • I can’t decide between getting the RSR or a wheel for my ps4

      10 months ago
    • As much as I love the LEGO RSR I would probably go with the wheel. You can use the wheel endlessly whilst the RSR will be left as a decoration piece... unless you’re the kind of person who rebuilds the set over and over.

  • Bugatti is on my Christmas list

      10 months ago
  • good selection but the 911 GT3 was a better build than the Bugatti. It is a masterpiece of engineering but it is so heavy that the front suspension just collapses under its own weight and the play functions are missing. I believe there are 160 pieces just for the seats..a bit of overkill like the real thing. And you did not include the latest monster truck with the phone app which is a great tool. Available also on the HUGE Liebherr bagger

    • Thank you for the feedback Christophe and the GT3 RS is certainly an epic build! I believe first and second place on this list are interchangeable as it comes down to preference, I personally love the overkill piece count. Although, what...
