We all know that Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport globally – that’s a given. Those of us that have grown up with LEGO also know that LEGO Technic is the ultimate in creative expression.

The new LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1™ Race Car is the first LEGO Technic incarnation of a Formula 1 car and offers racing fans a meticulous translation of McLaren’s pioneering design and cutting-edge technology that’s so crucial on-track. This set offers Formula 1 enthusiasts a chance to recharge and relax with a hands-on, focused building activity that helps them explore their passion for the sport.

James Key, Executive Director, Technical, McLaren Racing, said: “We are excited to unveil the unique LEGO Technic model of our McLaren F1 car, a fun and engaging product that celebrates our 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 final product looks fantastic, and we cannot wait to make this available to our fans.”

This 1,432 piece model will be sure to give LEGO fans and McLaren Racing lovers alike an immense sense of pride when they cross the finish line. Measuring over 5 in. (13 cm) high, 25.5 in. (65 cm) long and 10.5 in. (27 cm) wide the model is complete with sponsor stickers to make it a display piece to cherish.

The LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car will be available globally from March 1st, 2022 from LEGO.com, in LEGO stores and other retailers globally, and McLaren’s worldwide retailer network, with an RRP of $179.99.

Hitting shelves just one month out from the eagerly awaited return of the Australian Grand Prix (7 – 10 April), Technic fans will now be able to celebrate the return of our very own Daniel Ricciardo – and enjoy the suspense, emotion and excitement of his first race on home soil in three years – all while taking part in the ultimate Formula 1 building experience.

We can’t wait to get out hands on one and get building with LEGO Technic.
