From simple house designs to movie features, LEGO covers almost everything. Kayden loves to build his racing cars using LEGO bricks. He would imagine his cars are equipped with top-notch engines and out of the world features.
Today, LEGO’s Speed Champion fans will get really excited. The iconic bright orange McLaren 720S will be built into a full size 1:1 scale this week. From 161 to over 280,000 LEGO pieces, McLaren is building their five-star award-winning supercar in actual size. Happening this week, Goodwood Festival of Speed will showcase some of the world’s rarest and most extraordinary cars. The most iconic feature for this event will be the full-size replica of a McLaren 720S made from LEGO bricks.
With a team of six people, the team has spent over 2,000 hours on building this replica, which is about 83 days of non-stop work. How long it took to build a real McLaren 720S? 71 days.
The McLaren 720S LEGO replica will be built with 267,000 LEGO bricks before delivered to Goodwood Festival of Speed. Unfinished, the guests will help to complete the build using the rest of the 12,700 bricks.
Laid onto a steel base, the finished plastic LEGO McLaren 720S will weigh much heavier than a real 720S. The 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed will start speeding from June 29 to July 2 on the grounds of Goodwood House in Chichester, West Sussex.
