Last month, the LEGO Group and McLaren unveiled a full size, 467,825 piece McLaren Senna built almost entirely from LEGO elements. In a new video from the LEGO Group, Brazilian racing driver Bruno Senna sit inside the car, checks out the moving doors and demonstrates the working headlights.
It took 5,000 hours for 42 people to build this impressive recreation of the Senna.
Nine real Sennas could have been built in the 2,725 hours it took to build the model, which uses 467,825 pieces and weighs in at 1,700kg. As well as the automatic LEGO elements, the car uses a carbon fibre seat, steering wheel, tyres and pedal box from a real Senna. Fans will be able to check it out at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
In the LEGO Speed Champions theme, 75892 McLaren Senna (review) was launched as one of the brand new sets for January 2019. Brick Fanatics Magazine Issue 4 features an exclusive interview with McLaren Principal Designer Esteban Palazzo and LEGO Model Designer Christopher Leslie Stamp .
