McLaren and Aryton Senna fans might want to check out LEGO’s new full-size 1:1 scale model.

Constructed with nearly half a million bricks, the LEGO McLaren Senna made its public debut at E3 2019 — a renowned Los Angeles gaming show. The model will be on display throughout the E3 inside the Microsoft Theatre.

In total, 467,854 individual LEGO pieces were used in its construction, which is almost 200,000 more bricks than what were used to build the 720S model of two years ago.

Teams of up to 10 model-makers clocked in 2,725 hours to piece together all the elements for the LEGO McLaren Senna — nine times¬†longer compared to the production of each real hand-assembled Senna (300 hours).¬†Including design and development, a total of 4,935 hours went into creating the model, involving no fewer than 42 men and women from the LEGO build team.

The public unveil of the full-size LEGO model is part of the Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Championship expansion, where the McLaren Senna LEGO set will be full playable in-game. Players will be able to explore a new LEGO-themed world, compete in challenges, races and even an entire LEGO city.

Forza Horizon 4 LEGO Speed Champions launches worldwide on June 13 on Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs and Xbox Game Pass as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
