Cars and Lego go together like a peanut butter and jelly and it comes as the little surprise that McLaren decided to promote their new 720S with the full-size replica made from the classic construction bricks.
Built over the course of 2,000 man hours, well, the one-off replica started out as two metal frames mounted on the Lego floor. The build team then went to work carefully and assembling 280,000 bricks.
As part of the effort, this model was transported to the Goodwood Festival of Speed were the last 13,000 pieces were installed as part of the charity event which helped to raise $3,522.
The end result is truly impressive and the McLaren has previously noted this car weighs approximately 3,527 lbs (1,600 kg) which is actually more than a road-going model.
Speaking of the production model, it features the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 720 PS (527kW) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque.
It is connected to the seven-speed SSG transmission and which enables this supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.9 seconds before hitting the top speed of 341 km/h (212 mph).
The McLaren 720S doesn’t come cheap and fans looking to get their hands on the vehicle can always opt for the Lego Speed Champions version which costs just $16.95.
