Following the unveiling of the 9X8 hypercar last year, Team Peugeot TotalEnergies took on a new technical challenge: recreating the new hybrid hypercar using LEGO Technic. Fans of motorsport and LEGO can indulge themselves with the LEGO Technic Peugeot 9X8 24H Le Mans Hybrid Hypercar.
The LEGO Group and Peugeot Sport design teams have teamed up to create an accurate 1:10 scale miniature of the groundbreaking 9X8 hypercar. From the streamlined silhouette to the lemon yellow bodywork decorations, this new LEGO Technic model brings the allure of the Peugeot 9X8 to life. The 9X8 demonstrates Peugeot’s electrification and embodies the brand’s competitive spirit at the highest level.
The LEGO model features an exact scale version of the seven-speed electric gearbox and the unique doors of the four-wheel drive hypercar. The miniature 9X8 has the same elegant profile as the real 9X8 and there are fantastic details underneath, such as the powerful V6 engine and suspension. The whole is completed by glow-in-the-dark light elements to perfectly capture the excitement of racing.

The LEGO version of the hypercar will be unveiled on the weekend of the 6 Hours of Portimao (Portugal), the second race in the FIA World European Championship and a good preparation for the highly anticipated appearance of the Peugeot 9X8 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 10 and 11 June next.
The LEGO® Technic Peugeot 9X8 24H Le Mans Hybrid Hypercar set will be available on LEGO.com from May 1.
