In a video posted to the official LEGO YouTube channel, Guidi – who won the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in a 488 GTE Evo – reflects on playing with LEGO as a kid, and shares his thoughts on 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF Corse #51.
“I played as a kid with LEGO,” Guidi says. “I remember quite well one set of LEGO Technic, the engine was working when you [moved] the tyres. I spent a few afternoons of my time [assembling it], but I [enjoyed it] and I was really satisfied when I finished the model and it worked.”
If you’ve put together your own copy of the latest 18+ Technic set, you’ll probably have noticed – in and amongst the dozens of stickers over its every surface – one that reads ‘A. PIERGUIDI’, accompanied by an Italian flag. It’s a direct nod to the esteemed driver, and has seemingly left a lasting impression on him.
“When I saw this car I [was] really impressed, and also to [see] my name on a model of LEGO Technic of my car, I’m really proud of this honestly,” he explains.
Check out the full video above. It’s essentially just promotional material for 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF Corse #51, but it’s still cool seeing an actual Ferrari driver toying around with a LEGO version of the car.

- I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
