The new Lego Technic kit is the first designed in partnership with Ferrari and contains 1,677 pieces. It’s complex and highly detailed, including the extensive aero kit of the race car. It comes with a working suspension, a V-8 engine with working pistons, and a steering wheel connected to the wheels. It’s quite big too, with the finished 488 GTE measuring 19 inches in length.

The 488 GTE joins an already impressive collection of Lego Technic supercars that includes the Bugatti Chiron, Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, Porsche 911 RSR, and McLaren Senna GTR. The Ferrari 488 GTE kit costs $169.99 and goes on sale on January 1, 2021. Yes, it’s a shame that it won’t arrive until after the holidays, but there’s always time for a late Christmas gift.
