Yesterday, we shared the news of LEGO’s most recent social media tease: a McLaren F1 car made out of Technic. Today, LEGO has lifted the lid on that tease and fully announced LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car. The good news? It’s out in just a few weeks and it’s cheaper than we anticipated. The bad news? There isn’t any!
The model has been designed in close collaboration with the McLaren team; in fact, LEGO designed the model at the same time McLaren was building its 2022 F1 car, and so this Technic model is an authentic replica.
As such, it has all the details you’d expect: there’s a V6 cylinder engine with moving pistons, steering activated from the cockpit, suspension and a differential lock.
It’s a sizeable model, too: LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car measures 13cm high, 65cm long and 27cm wide. That’s a big set, especially considering the reasonable price tag: when it releases March 1st, this will cost £159.99. We’d expected a price akin to the Bugatti and Lamborghini so that is a pleasant surprise.
