“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.”
