I’m pretty sure everyone reading TopSpeed loves the McLaren Senna. Unfortunately, most of us can’t afford one. The good news is that we can find plenty of miniature replicas that we can afford and Lego just added another mini Senna to the list.

Can't Afford a McLaren Senna? Here's a cool Lego you can buy
- image 815542

Part of the popular Speed Champions series, this replica is made form 219 pieces and is 15 cm (5.9 inches) long. It’s finished in Victory Grey with contrasting orange highlights and includes interchangeable wheel rims, a removable windscreen, and a miniature driver. The cool thing is that the replica also comes with a miniature wind tunnel.

The set costs £12.99 (about $16.70 as of January 2019), a bargain not only when compared to the actual car, but other high-end miniature replicas as well. You’d better hurry if you want one though, as McLaren Legos have a tendency to sell out quickly, just like the P1 and the 720S did.

Check out the video below for all the features and makes sure you get one as fast as the Senna goes from zero to 60 mph.

About the author

McLaren Automotive’s latest Ultimate Series model to bear the legendary Senna name offers the purest connection yet between man and machine – without ever having to venture further than the kitchen table.

The most extreme track-focused road car built by McLaren has been brought down to size, with interlocking plastic bricks replacing carbon-fibre, for the new McLaren Senna LEGO® Speed Champions edition. Like the real thing, the collectible model promises hours of engaging fun – although in this case for petrolheads aged seven and up.

Each full-size McLaren Senna takes close to 300 hours of painstaking hand assembly at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, UK. The LEGO® Speed Champions Senna will also be hand-assembled – probably many times over – but the 219 pieces in each 15cm-long model go together rather more quickly.

The latest in a sought-after line of LEGO® McLarens, the kit includes one thing that not even the real Senna comes with: its own buildable wind tunnel. For a car that can generate an amazing 800kg of downforce at 155mph it is just the thing for junior aerodynamicists to check out the Senna’s exceptional aerodynamic properties. The model of course features the front splitter, roof snorkel, diffuser and giant rear wing without which no McLaren Senna would be complete.

Finished in Victory Grey with contrasting orange highlights, the model even comes with a set of interchangeable wheel rims, a removable windscreen and its own minifigure driver. Attired in a McLaren race suit complete with Pirelli partnership logo, the minifigure shows the amazing attention to detail that LEGO® achieves with its Speed Champions series.

With a recommended retail price of £12.99 you could buy more than 50,000 McLaren Senna LEGO® Speed Champions models for the price of one real McLaren Senna – if you could acquire one. The run of 500 Sennas, at £750,000 each, was assigned soon after the car was announced.

The LEGO® Speed Champions editions of McLaren cars also have a tendency to sell out and young fans of the Senna are urged to move quickly to secure one. The LEGO® Speed Champions versions of both the McLaren P1™ and the McLaren 720S quickly sold out and are now no longer available.

The new model, like the full-size car, is named after the late, great Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna who achieved each of his three Formula 1 World Championships in a McLaren. The car that bears his name, officially unveiled at the Winter Ball in 2017, is the lightest, most track-focused yet road-legal car McLaren has ever built. Boasting 800PS of turbocharged V8 power, the Senna can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds.

Re-creating such a McLaren performance giant for the creative amusement of young supercar enthusiasts is just the latest in a series of collaborations between McLaren Automotive and the iconic Danish toy manufacturer.

The McLaren Senna LEGO® Speed Champions edition is priced at just £12.99 and available from toy retailers now.
