$17 LEGO Senna Is A McLaren You Wouldn’t Cry If It Burst In Flames

The McLaren Senna has been immortalized in small LEGO bricks and launched in the UK, where it costs £12,99 ($16.7/€14.6), or about 1/50,000 of the cost of the real hypercar.

Built from 219 pieces, the 15 cm-long (5.9 in) scale model is finished in Victory Grey, contrasted with orange accents. It comes with a set of interchangeable rims, removable windscreen and minifigure driver. The set is completed by a small wind tunnel replica.

Aimed at enthusiasts over the age of seven years, the Senna LEGO Speed Champions edition is expected to fly off the shelves in no time, just like the LEGO P1 and 720S.

Unveiled a little over a year ago, the life-size Senna is limited to 500 hand-built examples, all of which were spoken for before its presentation. As for the initial asking price, it was £750,000 (equal to $964,153 or €840,620) in the United Kingdom, taxes included, whereas the final unit was auctioned off for £2 million ($2.6/€2.2 million).

Named after the late F1 driver Ayrton Senna, the hypercar uses an updated version of the British brand’s twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8, the displacement of which increased to 4.0 liters.

It pushes out 800 PS (789 hp / 589 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque, and rockets the 1,198 kg (2,641 lbs) weighing vehicle to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds. The 1/4-mile is said to be completed in just under 10 seconds, and top speed is 340 km/h (211 mph).

      I dig it…and would be quite disappointed if it caught fire, since it’s likely the only Senna I’ll be able to afford.
