LEGO Technic 42123 McLaren Senna GTR unveiled

The LEGO Group has announced the new 830 piece Technic 42123 McLaren Senna GTR, due for release January 2021.

LEGO Technic will kick off the 2021 range with 42123 McLaren Senna GTR, the first time that the theme has tackled a McLaren supercar. The 830 piece set will retail for £44.99 / $49.99 / €49.99 when it launches on January 1, 2021.

The press release declares: “From the V8 engine with moving pistons, beautiful aerodynamic curves, opening dihedral doors and a one-of-a-kind blue paint job, this 32cm (12 inch) long model is sure to raise eyebrows and get hearts pumping whether being taken out for a spin or put admiringly on display once built.”

“Recreating a car that is so extreme to the core as the McLaren Senna GTR with LEGO Technic gave us an incredibly interesting challenge,” says Uwe Wabra, LEGO Technic Senior Designer. “This track car is not like any road car I’ve worked on before. It’s got some unique details, like its silhouettes and the awesome rear spoiler, which differentiates the building experience from others. Just like the incredible engineers at McLaren do when designing their supercars, we really pushed things to the max so the resulting model perfectly honours the art form that is the McLaren Senna GTR.”

“The team responsible for the design of the McLaren Senna GTR worked incredibly closely with their design counterparts at the LEGO Group to capture the extreme looks, excitement and essence of such an incredible supercar for LEGO Technic builders,” adds Robert Melville, Design Director McLaren Automotive. “Just like the real thing, the LEGO model is packed full of incredible details from the rear spoiler to the moving pistons in the V8 engine to the dihedral doors meaning that we’re as proud of the model as we are of the real car.”
