McLaren Automotive and the LEGO Group have joined forces to create the new LEGO® Speed Champions McLaren Elva.
The 263-piece replica of one of the world’s most exclusive open-top speedsters comes complete with a mini figure inspired by McLaren’s Principal Development Engineer for the Ultimate Series, Rachel Brown.
Designed for unparalleled driver engagement and ultimate driving enjoyment, the McLaren Elva has no roof, windscreen or windows, making for an unforgettable driving experience.
The Elva’s Active Air Management System (AAMS), uses clever aerodynamics to control the air, creating a ‘bubble’ around the occupants and sheltering them from the oncoming wind.
Just like the real thing, the LEGO set comes with a wide chassis, incorporating the two-seat open cockpit, and authentic detailing including the AAMS vents that make the Elva so innovative and unique.
“It is amazing to have witnessed the Elva go from a boundary pushing concept drawing all the way to final vehicle production,” said Rachel.
“It feels even more special now to see all of that hard work transformed into the LEGO Speed Champions Elva model for us to share with children and fans across the world.
“Ever since I was a child I have dreamed of driving and testing cars and I still can’t believe that it’s a part of my job.
“I hope that it inspires other young people to follow their passions and pursue careers in the automotive or design and engineering industries. There are so many incredible opportunities.”
