You can now build your own full-size Lego Ferrari

The wheels and tires are real, but everything else is LEGO - and Ferrari says it takes about a year to build.

This is a full-sized Ferrari Monza SP1 made entirely out of Lego bricks.

It’s so faithful to the original that you have to squint to tell it’s made of Lego bricks.

The ‘car’ was built by Lego as part of its amusement park in Denmark, called Legoland.

The vehicle is fitted with a real steering wheel, rims, and tires but everything else is Lego, including badging, brake calipers, and even the headlamps.

Even the seats and the dashboard are made from Lego.

The Lego Ferrari is part of something the automaker calls ‘Ferrari Build and Race’, and it took about a year to complete.

And this is actually more than just a show pony, no pun intended.

Part of the reason why Lego and Ferrari made this is to encourage people to create their own Lego Ferrari.

The exhibition at Legoland allows visitors to assemble Lego bricks to create their own Ferrari, and then the car can be digitally scanned and they can drive it (virtually) around Fiorano, Ferrari’s in-house racetrack.

What about the real-life Ferrari Monza?

A tribute to the eponymous racetrack, the Monza is a roofless speedster available as a two-seater (SP2), or a hardcore single-seat racer with no windshield (SP1).

Whichever model you pick will be powered by the same naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12, putting out 700 horsepower and giving it a 0-60 mph (0-100km/h) time of just 2.9 seconds.

With no windshield, imagine that.

Production is capped at 499 units, including both models, with pricing starting at $1.58 million.

Mind you, the car sold out before production even began and, as always, the car is now trading at a premium in the pre-owned market.
