Lego Top Gear Is Now Canon In Disney's Cars Universe

By Tom Pritchard on at

The Stig is one of the most famous racing drivers in the world, and nobody has even seen his face. He's so famous in fact that it's just been confirmed Top Gear's tame racing driver actually exists within the world of Disney's Cars - or at least in a Lego version.

Top Gear teamed up with Lego, creating a short film that sees characters from the Cars films travel all the way to the Top Gear test track in Surrey. Once there they get to hang out with the in-universe version of The Stig. Or would it be The Stig's automotive cousin? Brick-based cousin perhaps? Assuming, of course, that The Stig himself isn't actually some sort of autonomous humanoid-car hybrid, or that he doesn't have a few components made from plastic building blocks.

It's not the first time Cars and Top Gear have collided, since Jeremy Clarkson played Lighting's manager in the British version of the first Cars film. Obviously this mash-up is a lot more obvious, even if it is a shameless advert for Lego's Cars 3 range of easy-to-build sets. Unfortunately there aren't likely to be any plans to release the automomorphised version of The Stig, though that might go against the child-age audience Lego wants for its 'Juniors' range. You know that if it were to be released all the stock would be bought up by adults with a lot more disposable income, then never played with.
