  • New #mclaren #720s joins legendary #mclaren P1TM in LEGO® Speed Champions range
  • Azores orange LEGO® model #720s is accompanied by a minifigure car designer, complete with design studio desk
  • Available to buy in June, shortly after the first of the full-size #mclaren #720s supercars are delivered to customers

The new #mclaren #720s is already well on the way to achieving cult status, joining the legendary #mclaren P1 TM in the LEGO® Speed Champions range of model cars.

The #lego Speed Champions #mclaren #720s, accompanied by a car designer minifigure and design studio desk, complete with coffee cup, original design sketch. and 3D-printed model car, will be available to buy from 1 June. Builders aged 7+ and supercar enthusiasts alike can show off their design skills and build this awesome model, then put on a racing helmet and switch from supercar designer to racing driver.

The imagination and complexity required to create a representation of the aerodynamically shrink-wrapped, sculpted body shape of the #720s, meant that it took a #lego designer a year to perfect and freeze the design of the new model.

“The #lego interpretation of the #mclaren #720s reflects the most exciting part of the design process, when a two-dimensional sketch is transformed into a physical, three-dimensional model,” commented #mclaren #automotive Chief Designer, Rob Melville. “Building a model like this gives the next generation of #mclaren enthusiasts a taste of just how exhilarating that moment is for designers.”

The real #mclaren #720s was unveiled on 7 March at the Geneva International Motor Show, introducing the second-generation #mclaren Super Series and raising established limits in the supercar sector. Powered by a new, twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine developing 720 horsepower, the new #mclaren supercar accelerates from standstill to 200km/h (124mph) in just 7.8 seconds and has a maximum speed of 341km/h (212mph).

The #lego Speed Champions #mclaren #720s will be priced at £12.99. The new #mclaren #720s available from #mclaren retailers is a little more expensive, with prices starting at £208,600 (UK).
