Full-size 1:1 scale McLaren Senna Lego gets a showing at E3 2019

By CARSIFU | 12 June 2019

LOS ANGELES: A full-size 1:1 scale Lego McLaren Senna will make its debut at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019.

Requiring almost half a million bricks and months to build, the car will be on display throughout the show inside the Microsoft Theatre - Xbox’s home for all activities for the show.

In total, 467,854 individual 'bricks' were used in its construction - 200,000 more than what was used to construct the 720S model in 2017.

Teams of 10 model-makers worked in shifts around the clock and took 2,725 hours to 'click' all the pieces together - some nine times more than the real hand-built Senna (300 hours).

Including design and development, a total of 4,935 hours went into creating the model, involving 42 individuals from the Danish toy production company's build team.

Also announced at E3 - Lego fans will be able to live out their ultimate McLaren fantasy thanks to new downloadable content.

As part of the Forza Horizon 4 Lego Speed Champions expansion, the McLaren Senna Lego set will be fully playable in-game, with players being able to explore a new Lego-themed world, complete with new challenges, races and even an entire Lego city.

Forza Horizon 4 sees players explore a stunning microcosm of the UK, with changing seasons, dynamic weather and some routes - all in native 4K and HDR.
