The McLaren Senna supercar assembled with LEGO® bricks weighs more than the original!

The McLaren Senna supercar assembled with LEGO® bricks weighs more than the original!

At the end of 2018, a truly impossible construction, at first glance - a working copy of a Bugatti Chiron car was assembled with LEGO® bricks. Its weight was 1.5 tons, which is not surprising: real wheels, batteries, a mechanical spoiler and even a motor were used as components. Lego did not want to stop there, and presented a copy of the McLaren Senna car, which completely repeats the size of the original and even surpasses it in weight.

LEGO® team have decided to build a replica of McLaren Senna model because of its exclusivity - only 500 copies were released at cost of 837 thousand dollars. Uniqueness also adds the fact that each of them were hand-built on their own McLaren factory in the English county of Surrey, and at the moment they are all sold out.

The car was assembled by a team of 42 engineers who worked in shifts - in total, 2725 man-hours were spent. If you also add the days during which the design and development were carried out, the duration increases to 4935 hours. In total, the creation of the car took half a million of LEGO® parts. In order to make it somehow look like the original, the team used some real parts: for example, a carbon seat, a steering wheel, pedals, badges with the company logo, wheels and tires.

The replica is equipped with a working entertainment system, headlights and doors. Unfortunately, it is not able to move independently like last year’s Bugatti Chiron model, which developed a speed of 20 kilometres per hour. However, when you press the start button, the replica makes quite realistic sounds of a car moving at a speed of 335 kilometres per hour.
