McLaren is bringing a very unique version of the 720S at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The unique 720S is more than just a typical one-off model, instead its a 1:1 scale model of the 720S that is made out of 267,300 plastic Lego bricks.
Following the launch of the 75880 Lego Speed Champions McLaren 720S miniature set, McLaren’s 720S supercar will be fully realized in Lego form at the Festival of Speed. There’s one unique twist though, since the 720S isn’t complete. In order to finish the build, visitors to the McLaren stand will need to place orange McLaren bricks in designated parts of the car, with the 720S reaching completion by the Sunday at the end of the Festival of Speed.
Just preparing the car for Goodwood has required more than 267,300 Lego bricks, with McLaren fans visiting the stand expected to add over 12,700 to completely finish the build. The end result will be a full-size Lego 720S weighing in at no less than 1.6 tons.
The 720S model was built up around a steel frame, with a team of six working for over 2,000 hours to build the car by hand.
