New McLaren 720S Builds Interest Among Younger Generations Of Supercar Enthusiasts  

The imagination and complexity required to create a representation of the aerodynamically shrink-wrapped, sculpted body shape of the 720S, meant that it took a LEGO designer a year to perfect and freeze the design of the new model.

'The LEGO interpretation of the McLaren 720S reflects the most exciting part of the design process, when a two-dimensional sketch is transformed into a physical, three-dimensional model,' commented McLaren Automotive Chief Designer, Rob Melville. 'Building a model like this gives the next generation of McLaren enthusiasts a taste of just how exhilarating that moment is for designers.'

The real McLaren 720S was unveiled on 7 March at the Geneva International Motor Show, introducing the second-generation McLaren Super Series and raising established limits in the supercar sector. Powered by a new, twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine developing 720 horsepower, the new McLaren supercar accelerates from standstill to 200km/h (124mph) in just 7.8 seconds and has a maximum speed of 341km/h (212mph).

The LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S will be priced at £12.99. The new McLaren 720S available from McLaren retailers is a little more expensive, with prices starting at £208,600 (UK).
