Last month, McLaren impressed everyone with their life-size Lego replica of 2018 McLaren 720S at Goodwood Festival of Speed. At the event, last 13,000 blocks were added by lucky attendees in a move to raise more than $3,500 for the official Goodwood Charity. But don’t be disheartened if you were not at the event, as McLaren has now released one-minute time-lapse video showing the creative engineering process behind the build.
McLaren provided CAD data to Lego for the construction of this life-size build. Using the data, professional Lego builders determined the correct number and range of bricks required for the build. The six-person Bright Bricks crew used 280,000 Lego bricks and took 2,000 man hours to construct this Lego version over a steel frame and a very real set of Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
The effort put in to build this Lego model is far more than the ’12 days,’ which are required to build a real 720S entirely from scratch. Now, you’ll realize that the Lego McLaren 720S is much more than the real 3,200-pound toy car. Plus, it’s heavier than the real thing too – with 1.6 ton weight.
Before the Lego fanatics start reaching out for their wallets, let us inform you that this 1:1 model is not for sale. But you can definitely pick up the toymaker’s miniature McLaren set that can fit perfectly on your desk.
