LEGO and Daimler AG have teamed up to create a new scale model of the Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245.

Set to become part of LEGO's Technic line, the Arocs 3245 features 2,793 different pieces and several pneumatic actuators.  It also measures 21 inches (54 cm) long, 5 inches (14 cm) wide and 12 inches (31 cm) tall.

According to LEGO Senior Marketing Manager Niels Henrik Horsted, “We wanted to match the real Arocs 3245 as best as we could. Our model comes with [a] new four axle suspension, a new outrigger element, a new turntable element, pumps, and of course our advanced new Pneumatics 2.0 system, which offers an easier, more realistic way of connecting cylinders and hoses. And, as always with our big LEGO Technic models, this box comes with building instructions for an alternative model that is equally authentic and challenging to build."

The LEGO Arocs 3245 will go on sale on August 1st and it is being billed as "one of the most complex models in the LEGO Technic assortment."
