Published

on

As the Melbourne Grand Prix kicks off for 2022, there’s one car that’s taking the spotlight.

Lego Australia has teamed up with Maclaren Racing to create a life-sized replica of the McLaren 2022 F1 car design. 

27 people carefully designed the giant build, putting in a whopping 1893 hours to construct.

Ryan McNaught put the project together and says it pushes the limits like never before.

“We never stop trying to excite and inspire our fans by pushing the limits of possibility through the technology and designs produced, both on the racetrack and with LEGO building,”

Niels Henrik Horsted, Head of Product, LEGO Technic

  • The large scale McLaren Formula 1™ Race Car model is a huge 9 x the size of the LEGO Technic set! 
  • LEGO plates have been used on the model to recreate the logos as seen on the real McLaren Formula 1 race car 
  • The model is made of 5 separate components: 4 x wheels, car body, suspension x 4, halo and front spoiler. 
  • Just like the real McLaren Formula 1 race car, the LEGO model has been designed to allow people to sit in it thanks to the removable halo and steering wheel

This is also the first time LEGO has recreated an F1 at this size, with their eyes firmly set on what’s to come.

James Key, Executive Director, Technical, McLaren Racing, says the LEGO Technic model of our McLaren F1 car, is a fun and engaging product that celebrates the 2021 season livery while giving fans a hands-on interpretation of the new 2022 F1 car design. 

“This has been made possible by an agile collaboration with the LEGO Group team, who have truly embraced the spirit of our brave and bold approach to design. The model is a must have for F1 and LEGO fans.”

This comes at a time when Australia’s Daniel Riccardo returns to race on home soil on behalf of McLaren.

The perfectly engineered piece will be on full display for F1 and LEGO fans to experience, even allowing people to sit in the driver’s seat.
