This 2022 Reveal to Town is the highly detailed LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car model. It includes a V6 cylinder engine with moving pistons and a working steering wheel, suspension, and differential locking. This is also LEGO Technic’s first F1 racing car model.
The LEGO Technic 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car model tops out at only 1,431 pieces (compared to the 3,696-piece Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 or the 1,677-piece Ferrari 488 GTE “AF Corse #51”It is not less impressive when it is completed.
It measures 65cm (length) x 27cm (width) x 13cm (height) and comes in the recognisable papaya colours of Team McLaren’s 2021 livery. The model will be a focal point on your display shelf. Do note that the model is not a replica of Team McLaren’s 2022 car; some creative interpretation has been done to its model form.
It took us almost 9 hours to build it live on Twitch. LEGO enthusiasts could probably beat that time, but it was a lot more than we expected.
