The folks at LEGOLAND have decided to immortalize the Caterham R500's achievement of being named Top Gear's 2008 Car of the Year by creating a LEGO tribute.

Constructed out of LEGO's trademark plastic bricks, the tribute features the R500 as well as replicas of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and the Stig.

According to LEGOLAND'S chief model maker, Guy Bagley, "My colleague remembered that the Stig had put the R500 through its paces and how incredible it was on the track. It's such a timeless and iconic car that it was a ‘no-brainer' as our choice for the motorsport area, having already decided to feature Top Gear. Its design lends itself particularly well to our bricks, too."
