Craig Callum Walks Us Through the Design of the Lego Mercedes-AMG GT

The Lego Speed Champions collection is undeniably cool. Each assembled kit bears a striking resemblance to its real-life eponym, and now we get a peek at how Lego mastered the replicas.

Craig Callum is the design manager of the Lego Speed Champions lineup, and he knows his business. As just a wee boy of 5, playing with Legos helped Callum decide that he wanted to become a car designer. He went on to do just that, earning an automotive design degree from Coventry University. Now he's playing with Legos again.

We love our jobs working with the Mercedes-Benz brand, so we have no complaints. But imagine designing Lego versions of amazing supercars from your office in Billund, Denmark! It's almost too good to be true.

Did you decide on a career path when you were a kid, and are you working in that field today?
