McLaren Automotive has added an Ultimate Series model to its Lego stable.
The most extreme track-focused road car built by McLaren has been brought down to size, with interlocking plastic bricks replacing carbon-fibre, for the new McLaren Senna LEGO® Speed Champions edition. Like the real thing, the collectible model promises hours of engaging fun – although in this case for petrolheads aged seven and up.
Each full-size McLaren Senna takes close to 300 hours of painstaking hand assembly at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, UK. The LEGO® Speed Champions Senna will also be hand-assembled – probably many times over – but the 219 pieces in each 15cm-long model go together rather more quickly.
The latest in a sought-after line of LEGO® McLarens, the kit includes one thing that not even the real Senna comes with: its own buildable wind tunnel. For a car that can generate an amazing 800kg of downforce at 155mph it is just the thing for junior aerodynamicists to check out the Senna’s exceptional aerodynamic properties. The model of course features the front splitter, roof snorkel, diffuser and giant rear wing without which no McLaren Senna would be complete.
