These LEGO cars designed by the celebrated toy brand are more complicated than most of its standard collections.

The cars are modeled after the classic Volkswagen Beetle, containing every detail from the the sleek interior to the four-cylinder engine. The LEGO cars are built with 1,167 pieces and have a price tag that mirrors its impressive accuracy -- making the product more of a collectible for auto lovers and LEGO fans than a toy for young children.

This LEGO Volkswagen Beetle follows the release of a previous version that featured a less authentic design, with the bumpy connectors of the blocks detracting from the classic model. The company sought to improve this by giving the outer pieces of the model a smooth finish and adding customizable features that make the collectible more appealing to consumers. Reflective of consumers' evolving interest in maker culture, this toy is not only collectible but also encourages creativity by requiring owners to build it themselves.
