This Awesome Lego Mercedes-Benz Kit Is More Complicated Than Its Name

Lego Mercedes-Benz Arocs Tipper We’re not changing our name to Lego and Driver—although we’d be all for starting a sister publication—but it is true that Lego has been stepping up its automotive game as of late. The world’s most powerful brand has released incredibly realistic kits of everything from a classic Ferrari F40 to a Mini Cooper, a Volkswagen T1 Camper van, and even a Mercedes Unimog. There’s now another Mercedes-Benz product in Lego’s stable, and it’s the massively complicated, massively lust-worthy, and massively, uh, massive Arocs 3245 Tipper.



Lego Mercedes-Benz Arocs Tipper Do we know what exactly a “Tipper” is? Nope. [It’s U.K./Euro terminology for a dump truck, Stoklosa—Ed.] But we can understand that pneumatic grabber arm, the wicked articulating suspension, and those 12 wheels. The Technic kit measures 12.2 inches high, 21.3 inches long, and 5.5 inches wide and is made up of 2793 individual parts, and it also has several battery-powered functions. If it were possible to out-cool Mercedes-Benz’s Lego Unimog, the Arocs 3245 Tipper has done it. The $229.99 kit will be available August 1, 2015, right around the same time as the Ferrari F40 kit we’re so looking forward to. Seriously, though, we could totally do the Lego and Driver thing.
