McLaren brought a full-size 720S made almost entirely out of Legos to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year. After the festivities, we saw a time-lapse video of how it was made and felt inspired to make something similar of our own.
Thus, the Autoweek McLaren 720S Lego project was born. In reality, it wasn’t much of a project because our toy car was miniature compared to the actual Lego 720S, but we still had fun. McLaren’s model consisted of 280,000 individual bricks and took 2,000 man hours to complete. Kudos to them. We spent the better part of an hour on our little model, but condensed it down to about 30 seconds for you here.
It’s stiffer than most cars in its class. It’s a little loud and crashy over bigger bumps. This one has the upgraded 18-inch wheels though — also part of the Prestige package; smaller ones might be less harsh.
Give me a base, stripper, S3 please. It clocks in at $42,900.
