Released earlier this year, 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car is a vibrant, highly detailed racing vehicle. It comes with an RRP of £169.99, but it can currently be bought from Argos for £120.00 – and using the code LEGO10 will take an additional 10% off. That brings the final price down to £108.00, which represents a 44% saving on the RRP.
The LEGO McLaren Formula 1 race car takes inspiration from two different models of race car in the real world. It immediately stands out thanks to its eye-catching blue and orange colour scheme, and introduces a number of new elements to better capture its appearance. This is augmented by a number of stickers, which include several real-life brands for greater accuracy to the source material.
The finished model measures around 65cm long, and comes with all the features you’d expect of a premium LEGO Technic product. These include a V6 engine with working pistons, functional steering connected to the steering wheel, suspension and even a differential.
Other fine details include winglets over the front wheels, an air intake and an adjustable rear spoiler. As such – despite being designed as a display piece – this is a LEGO Technic set with a high degree of interactivity, and broad appeal for Formula 1 fans.
Buying from Argos depends upon what’s available in your local area, so make sure to enter your postcode on the website to avoid disappointment. If you’re having the set delivered, you will also need to pay a small delivery fee – but this gives you plenty of flexibility over delivery times, and same-day delivery is frequently available if you order early in the day.
