Full Scale LEGO McLaren Senna

Taking nearly 5,000 hours to assemble and requiring nearly half a million bricks to complete, this Full-Scale LEGO McLaren Senna is as impressive as it is fun. The interactive model incorporates the infotainment system, carbon fiber seats, steering wheel, and pedals from the real car, as well as actual McLaren badges and real Pirelli tires. There’s also a start button in the roof, which activates the sound of the car roaring to life.

Overall, it took more than 40 men and women to design and build the model, using 467,854 individual LEGO bricks — so while it might be the same size as the road car, it weighs a full 1,102 lbs more.
