Releasing at the start of this year, 42123 McLaren Senna offers one of the popular Technic supercar models at a much lower price point, perfect for builders on a budget. Now, a month after it’s initial release, the designer video for the model has been revealed.
The description of the video states that the McLaren Tech Club popped over to the LEGO Group’s HQ to ask designer Aurélien Rouge about the build. Not only does this mean some designer insight into the development of the set, but it also provides us with some rather gorgeous shots of the new campus buildings.
Aurélien mentions that one of the challenges faced in designing the supercar replica was keeping the shape while allowing enough flat surfaces for livery stickers. He also mentions that the V8 engine does not use the normal pieces, but a new system that better fits the scale of the model.
