Designed in partnership with McLaren, LEGO Group has just revealed the LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car #42141 set, a 25.5-inch long, 10.5-inch wide F1 replica made from a staggering 1432 bricks. The set celebrates McLaren’s iconic papaya livery carried on the MCL35M race cars throughout the 2021 F1 season and comes with some pretty nifty details, including an actual V6-engine made from LEGO bricks, complete with moving pistons!

Designers: LEGO & McLaren Racing

The LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car is a collaborative design effort between LEGO and McLaren Racing’s design team. Built to vividly realistic detail, the car comes with its own LEGO V6 engine with moving pistons, steering activated from the cockpit, suspension, and a differential lock. For added realism, the automobile even sports the logos of the partner and sponsor brands across the car’s bodywork, and even the half-open cockpit that’s now a standard in the Formula 1!

“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, Technical Director of McLaren Racing. “The final product looks fantastic, and we cannot wait to make this available to our fans.”

The LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car #42141 set will be made available starting March 1st, 2022, at a price of $179.99.
