McLaren and Lego have announced the launch of the first-ever Formula 1 race car, Technic 42141, from the racing team – here’s how you can buy it
Whether you binge-watched all three seasons of Drive To Survive no Netflix (us too) or you’re a longstanding fan of the thrill of Formula One, we’ve got some good news for you: McLaren Racing has teamed up with Lego to create the first-ever buildable F1 car.
The model was designed at the same time as the all-new 2022 MCL3 car, which is due to be revealed to the general public on Friday (11 fevereiro), and it is said to be a replica of what you’ll see on the race circuit this year, but in the same colourways as last year’s car.
Measuring 65cm in length, it also comes with stickers from McLaren’s sponsors so it looks even more like the real deal, making it a great model to have on display.
Speaking about the new launch, technical director at McLaren Racing James Key said that it’s a “fun and engaging product that celebrates our 2021 season livery while giving fans a hands-on interpretation of the new 2022 F1 car design”. He added that the final model “looks fantastic”.
In a video shared on social media by McLaren drivers, Daniel Riccardo and Lando Norris unveiled the Lego masterpiece, providing the first look of the 1,432-piece model and all the high-tech features that they were impressed by.

Lego Technic McLaren Formula 1 race car: £ 159,99, Lego.com – available on 1 Março
This buildable F1 race car is the first to be created by Lego and McLaren Racing, so if you’re a fan of the British team, this collector’s item is one to get your hands on before it races off the shelves.
The 1,432-piece model is a detailed replica of the car that will be driven by Daniel Riccardo and Lando Norris in the 2022 race season. It comes in McLaren’s signature blue and orange colourway from 2021, but it includes key features of this year’s vehicle, such as the V6 cylinder engine with moving pistons (which even impressed Riccardo and Norris), as well as steering and active suspension. It also comes complete with wet tyres and wheel covers. Pretty cool.
It’ll be available to buy from Tuesday 1 Março, so we’d recommend adding the date to your diary so you don’t miss it. Now let’s hope you can build this model in record time.
