It’s a weekend of big deals on LEGO sets at Zavvi as the birthday sale also includes a discount of £35 on 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car. To help you avoid the maths, that drops the price down from the usual £159.99 to £124.99.
42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car is the first licensed Formula 1 car of this scale in LEGO Technic, replicating the technical features of the real vehicle and the design that Formula 1 cars have become iconic for, even down to the sponsor-filled livery.
While there are many other larger LEGO Technic car recreations, there are few depicting open-fender vehicles and even fewer in partnership with Formula 1 and McLaren. As a LEGO Technic model, it closely remakes the functions of the real vehicle in bricks too, including a V6 cylinder engine with moving pistons, steering, suspension and differential
42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car launched earlier this year, making the 22% discount even more tempting for those who have been on the fence, or waiting for a decent deal on the set. You could always buy it as an early holiday gift for a Formula 1 enthusiast while the model is in stock and on sale.
