The latest Lego Technic kit is a 1,432-part model of McLaren’s Formula One car from the 2021 season. F1 fans can add this engine to their collection of scale vehicles on March 1. It sells for $179.99.
F1 cars will take up quite a bit of real estate on your shelf. Over 25.5 inches (65 centimeters) long, 10.5 inches (27 centimeters) wide, and over 5 inches (13 centimeters) high.
His styling includes cues from the yet-to-be-launched 2022 McLaren F1 car. “The Lego designers worked closely with the team at McLaren Racing, with both experts developing versions of their car at the same time for the 2022 racing season,” the toymaker’s description of the model reads.
Its large size means there’s plenty of room to include interesting details. The turbocharged V6 engine has a moving piston, and there is a difference in work. There’s a wheel for you to pretend to be Daniel Ricciardo or Lando Norris. Suspension function too. This model comes with a sponsor sticker to apply to make the car look like what it was on the track.
Due to its complexity, Lego recommends this building for people aged 18 and over. This model comes with a coffee table-style instruction booklet covering the story behind the collaboration between McLaren Racing and Lego.
The two companies already have a cooperative relationship. Previous kits included smaller versions of the Elva and 720S. The Senna GTR received Lego Technic models, but at 830, that’s much smaller than the new F1 car model.
With 1,432 pieces, the McLaren F1 car doesn’t have as many parts to assemble as some other Lego Technic sets. For example, the toy maker launched the Lamborghini Sian model with 3,696 blocks to assemble. In 2018, the Bugatti Chiron came out with 3,599 bricks to put together.
