If you have your eyes set on the drop-dead gorgeous McLaren Elva, but don't have at least RM8.2 million to fork out in order to own one, the new offering from Lego Speed Champions might just be the solution for you. McLaren together with Lego has joined forces once again to create this 263-piece set inspired by the brand's latest, lightest, and most innovative supercar yet, the McLaren Elva.
Once assembled, the Lego Speed Champions McLaren measures around 4cm in height, 16cm in length, and 7cm wide. The detailed Lego-styled replica also carries the Elva's wide chassis design, two-seat open cockpit, and all the details that make the Elva unique, including its AAMS vents.
Priced at around RM90, the McLaren Elva Lego Speed Champions set comes with a McLaren driver mini-figure complete with a race suit, helmet, and wrench. This design was inspired by McLaren Automotive's Principal Development Engineer for Ultimate Series, Rachel Brown. Very nice touch, indeed.
According to Brown, "It is amazing to have witnessed the Elva go from a boundary-pushing concept drawing all the way to final vehicle production. It feels even more special now to see all of that hard work transformed into the Lego Speed Champions Elva model for us to share with children and fans across the world."
"Ever since I was a child I have dreamed of driving and testing cars and I still can’t believe that it’s a part of my job. I hope that it inspires other young people to follow their passions and pursue careers in the #automotive or design and engineering industries. There are so many incredible opportunities," added Brown.
The Lego Speed Champions McLaren Elva set is available for purchase at Lego Certified Stores such as Box of Bricks and Brick Magic. As stated above, the price should be around the RM90 mark.
