Lego Technic McLaren Formula 1 race car

Drivers, get ready to fuel your Formula 1 passion as you get the new Lego Technic McLaren Formula 1

Just like its real-life counterpart, this stunning Lego model is truly a one-of-a-kind piece of engineering excellence.

Hitting shelves just one month out from the eagerly awaited return of the Australian Grand Prix (7 – 10 April), Lego Technic fans will now be able to celebrate the return of our very own Daniel Ricciardo – and enjoy the suspense, emotion and excitement of his first race on home soil in three years – all while taking part in the ultimate Formula 1 building experience.

Designed in close collaboration between engineering experts from the Lego Group and McLaren Racing as the new Formula 1 race car was in development, the new model plays homage to the team’s iconic 2021 season livery, while giving fans a glimpse of what they might expect from McLaren Racing’s new F1 season model.

 

The Lego Technic version of the McLaren masterpiece is fully modelled on the life-size version featuring a V6 cylinder engine with moving pistons, steering activated from the cockpit, suspension and a differential lock.

 

The new Lego Technic McLaren Formula 1 race car is the first Lego Technic incarnation of a Formula 1 car and offers racing fans a meticulous translation of McLaren’s pioneering design and cutting-edge technology that’s so crucial on-track. This set offers Formula 1 enthusiasts a chance to recharge and relax with a hands-on, focused building activity that helps them explore their passion for the sport.

“The partnership between the Lego Group and McLaren continuously develops each time we get together for the next collaboration. We never stop trying to excite and inspire our fans by pushing the limits of possibility through the technology and designs produced, both on the racetrack and with Lego building,” said Niels Henrik Horsted, Head of Product, Lego Technic.

 

 “We are excited to unveil the unique Lego Technic model of our McLaren F1 car, a fun and engaging product that celebrates our 2021 season livery while giving fans a hands-on interpretation of the new 2022 F1 car design. Said James Key, Executive Director, Technical, McLaren Racing.

 

“This has been made possible by an agile collaboration with the Lego Group team, who have truly embraced the spirit of our brave and bold approach to design. The final product looks fantastic, and we cannot wait to make this available to our fans.”

This 1,432 piece model will be sure to give Lego fans and McLaren Racing lovers alike an immense sense of pride when they cross the finish line. Measuring over 5 in. (13 cm) high, 25.5 in. (65 cm) long and 10.5 in. (27 cm) wide the model is complete with sponsor stickers to make it a display piece to cherish.
