A new McLaren has been spotted during dynamic testing ahead of its introduction in January.

The car’s brick-based construction has made it necessary for development to move from McLaren’s usual secret facility near Idiada in Spain to a busy Lego Store in Central London.

Not the first time

Under the camouflaged body, the shape is recognisably a McLaren. Insiders suggest it has been designed with frequent reassembly by future owners in mind.

This isn’t the first time that McLaren has ventured away from its famous carbon fibre construction in favour of interlocking bricks.

Back in 2017, the McLaren 720S was converted into a 280 000 brick 1:1 scale replica and was finished with the help of visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. An easier-to-complete version can still be purchased in any Lego Store as part of the company’s Speed Champions range.

The story is expected to build in January when the new McLaren is unwrapped.
