What's the LEGO McLaren partnership all about?
What's important to note about the LEGO version of the car is that it's not an exact replica of the 2022 McLaren. Rather, it's designed to represent a combination of the 2021 and 2022 race cars, the MCL36 and MCL35. Due to the timing of the development of the LEGO version, it displays the outward appearance of the 2021 livery but with a nod toward the new regulations that came into effect in 2022.
The collaboration between the teams from the car company and LEGO took place amidst an especially challenging set of circumstances. As a result of the pandemic, they had to do all of their work together virtually making the final product extra impressive.
A look at the McLaren F1 LEGO set
The LEGO version of McLaren's Formula 1 vehicle is truly astonishing in its attention to detail. For starters, it comes with a whopping 1,432 pieces.
All those pieces are intended to replicate the actual technology underpinning the real-life McLaren vehicle, and this fact didn't go unnoticed or unappreciated by the car's fans.
Of course, with the amount of work that went into the design of the LEGO set, it's no surprise that its price is on the high side. At $179.99, it's clearly a set intended for true fans of the car.
You may also have to wait to get your hands on one: it's currently listed as out of stock on LEGO's site.

The 1.6 L V6 turbocharged engine, developed in conjunction with Mercedes, can also reach 15,000 rpm.
All in all, the car offers power that you'll find in few other places in the automotive world.
