There’s a guy in my neighborhood who drives a Fauxrarri F40 that’s probably built on something like a Pontiac Fiero. It’s actually not a bad facsimile, but it’s inherently lame by its very nature. This F40, however, is not lame. In fact, it might be second only to an actual 1987-1992 Ferrari F40 made of carbon fiber and aluminum in non-lameness. That’s because it’s made of LEGO bricks!

This F40 is the newest addition to the LEGO Creator collection and comes as an 1,158-piece set, including a windscreen and wheel inserts that were custom made for this kit. LEGO worked closely with Ferrari on it and it shows. All the F40 calling cards are here: triple exhaust, popup headlamps, engine cover with vented glass and even NACA ducts on the hood and sides. But the coup de gras is the 2.9-liter V-8, which is also removable.

LEGO news site The Brick Fan says this veritable masterpiece of LEGO supercar engineering will be available to LEGO VIP members in the second half of July, and to everyone else at the beginning of August at a cost of $89.99.

Why it matters

If there’s one thing that Ferrari likes doing more than building fast cars, it’s licensing its name, logo and products to seemingly every toy, watch, shoe and apparel company under the sun. There’s probably a Ferrari Beanie Baby somewhere out there.

The F40 joins the Ferrari-themed LEGO Champions sets, which include the 2014 Ferrari F14 T and Scuderia Ferrari Truck, 2011 458 Italia GT2 and 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari.
