Build Your Own McLaren Formula 1 Race Car (LEGO Technic Version)

Fans of motorsports and clever engineering can now own and build their own F1 race car, albeit scaled down one. LEGO Technic has unveiled its version of the McLaren Formula 1 Race Car that is packed with exquisite design and functionality.

Like its real-life counterpart, this LEGO model is a one-of-a-kind piece of engineering excellence. It was designed in close collaboration between engineering experts from the LEGO Group and McLaren Racing as the new 2022 Formula 1 race car was in development. The LEGO Technic version of the McLaren masterpiece is fully modeled on the life-size car, featuring a V6 cylinder engine with moving pistons, steering activated from the cockpit, suspension and a differential lock. As McLaren’s 2022 contender has not been officially launched, the LEGO Technic version sports the 2021 season papaya-blue livery.

“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. 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,” said James Key, Executive Director, Technical, McLaren Racing.

The LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car is the first Technic incarnation of a Formula 1 car and offers racing fans a meticulous interpretation of McLaren’s pioneering design and cutting-edge technology. This set offers Formula 1 enthusiasts a chance to recharge and relax with a hands-on, focused building activity that helps you explore your passion for the sport, or just to appreciate the engineering of either model. The model measures 65 cm long, 27 cm wide and 13 cm high, and comes in 1,432 pieces.

“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.LEGO® Technic McLaren Formula 1™ Race Car_Top
