McLaren fans will soon be able to get their hands on a brand new LEGO-Technic version of the team's F1 challenger.

The unique model was designed in collaboration between the two brands and goes on sale from 1 March.

It is presented in the livery used by the McLaren F1 team during the 2021 season, with the papaya-coloured set also being an interpretation of the revolutionary new 2022 F1 rules.

Created by the LEGO Group's design experts with help from McLaren, it features a model V6 engine with moving pistons, working steering, suspension and a differential lock.

Consisting of 1,432 individual pieces, it is 25.5 inches long, 10.5 inches wide and over five inches tall.

"We are excited to unveil the unique LEGO-Technic model of our McLaren F1 car, a fun and engaging product that celebrates our 2021 season livery while giving fans a hands-on interpretation of the new 2022 F1 car design," said McLaren Technical Director James Key.

"This has been made possible by an agile collaboration with the LEGO Group team, who have truly embraced the spirit of our brave and bold approach to design.

"The final product looks fantastic, and we cannot wait to make this available to our fans."
