Ever dreamed of having your own McLaren Formula 1 race car? Now you can, albeit the Lego version as McLaren Racing and the Lego Group offer the Lego Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car kit with sales scheduled to launch March 1.
“The Lego Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car celebrates McLaren’s iconic papaya livery carried on the MCL35M race cars throughout the 2021 F1 season, while also providing an interpretation of the new-look 2022 F1 race cars as the sport heads into an era of refreshed regulations,” the companies said in their news release.
“The model marks the first-ever Lego Technic incarnation of an F1 car. The building experience is designed to reflect the shared McLaren and Lego Group values of pioneering design and cutting-edge technology, while enabling fans to explore their passion for the sport.”
The kit, comprising 1,432 pieces, features a V6 engine with moving pistons, with wheels that can be steered from the cockpit, and with a differential lock. The assembled car is 25.5 inches in length.
The Lego website prices the kit at £159.99 (nearly $220).
