If you’re a Lego model collector who also happens to be a fan of supercars or McLaren to be precise, we have some great news.
Lego has announced that it will be introducing the new McLaren 720S as part of the Speed Champions series, joining the legendary McLaren P1.
The best part is that the 720S will be accompanied by a car designer minifigure and design studio desk, complete with coffee cup, original design sketch, and also a 3D-printed model car.
Suitable for builders aged 7 and above, supercar enthusiasts alike can show off their design skills and build this awesome model.
“The Lego interpretation of the McLaren 720S reflects the most exciting part of the design process, when a two-dimensional sketch is transformed into a physical, three-dimensional model,” commented McLaren Automotive Chief Designer, Rob Melville.
“Building a model like this gives the next generation of McLaren enthusiasts a taste of just how exhilarating that moment is for designers.”
Unveiled on 7 March at the Geneva International Motor Show, the McLaren 720S is powered by a new, twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine developing 720 horsepower, enabling the car to make the century in 7.8 seconds and clock a maximum speed of 341km/h.
The Lego Speed Champions McLaren 720S will be priced at £12.99.
