A new addition has sped onto the track and supercar scene. The new LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR provides the ultimate thrill for sportscar lovers and motorsport fans alike looking for their next building challenge.
“The team responsible for the design of the McLaren Senna GTR worked incredibly closely with their design counterparts at the LEGO Group to capture the extreme looks, excitement and essence of such an incredible supercar for LEGO Technic builders,” says Robert Melville, design director, McLaren Automotive. “Just like the real thing, the LEGO model is packed full of incredible details from the rear spoiler to the moving pistons in the V8 engine to the dihedral doors meaning that we’re as proud of the model as we are of the real car.”
The LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR is the latest model to be released as part of the long-standing partnership that started in 2015. The 830-piece model is the first McLaren supercar to be recreated in LEGO Technic form and is designed to provide the ultimate building thrill for those ages 10 and above.
From the V8 engine with moving pistons, aerodynamic curves, opening dihedral doors and a one-of-a-kind blue livery, this 32cm (12 inch) long model is a LEGO replica is designed to be built by hand.
“Recreating a car that is so extreme to the core as the McLaren Senna GTR with LEGO Technic gave us an incredibly interesting challenge,” says Uwe Wabra, senior director, LEGO Technic. “This track car is not like any road car I’ve worked on before. It’s got some unique details, like its silhouettes and the awesome rear spoiler, which differentiates the building experience from others. Just like the incredible engineers at McLaren do when designing their supercars, we really pushed things to the max so the resulting model perfectly honors the art form that is the McLaren Senna GTR.”
The LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR will be launched globally from Jan. 1 2021 via LEGO.com, LEGO stores and other retailers globally, and participating McLaren retailers.
