LEGO drives ahead with McLaren Automotive

New LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR 830-piece model set to launch from January 1, 2021.

LEGO Group is collaborating with McLaren Automotive on a new 830-piece model.

The LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR will be available from January 1, 2021 and will be the first McLaren supercar to be recreated in LEGO Technic form.

The 32cm (12-inch) long model will replicate the V8 engine with moving pistons, aerodynamic curves, opening dihedral doors and a one-of-a-kind blue livery.

Plus, like every full-scale McLaren Senna GTR, the 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,” said Uwe Wabra, senior designer at 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 honours the art form that is the McLaren Senna GTR.”

Robert Melville, design director at McLaren Automotive, added: “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.”
