mclaren automotive worked with the LEGO’s speed champions team based in billund, denmark, providing in-depth vehicle CAD drawings in order to determine the correct number of bricks for the model. the six-person professional LEGO building team, bright bricks, took around 2000 hours and used 280,000`bricks to assemble the supercar. in comparison, a real production mclaren ‘720S’ takes around twelve days for the british-automaker to build. the model was constructed over a steel frame, and a real set of pirelli ‘P zero corsa’ tires. the visitors helped raise over $3,000 for charity at goodwood festival of speed, and took the opportunity to lay down the final 12,000 bricks.
