Mini F1 Replica
LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car

In the lead-up to the 2022 season, Formula 1 teams have just begun unveiling their new cars for all the world to see. LEGO has just joined in and unveiled its own collaboration with McLaren Racing for the LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car.

The stunning model car is, surprisingly enough, the very first LEGO Technic set based on an F1 challenger. Models under the Technic line always strive for absolute fidelity to the original and this incarnation of the McLaren F1 race car is no different, despite the intensely technical design and engineering employed. The iconic ‘papaya’ livery is directly borrowed from last year’s MCL35M. McLaren has yet to launch its 2022 race car at the time of writing, but the team does mention design experts from both LEGO and McLaren Racing have worked closely together, developing their version of the new machine while still adhering to the 2022 regulations.

The model comprises 1,432 pieces and measures 13 cm high, 65 cm long, and 27 cm wide when completed. Distinctive features on the model F1 car include the hybrid V6 engine with moving pistons, steering activated from the cockpit, plus a working suspension system and differential for precise cornering. The brick car also comes with a set of sponsor stickers, a coffee-table-style booklet with building instructions, and a detailed story explaining this amazing collaboration.

The LEGO Technic McLaren Formula 1 Race Car 42141 is priced at US$ 179.99 and will be available for purchase starting from 1st March.
