McLaren P1

Lego Technic McLaren P1

McLaren’s past few Formula 1 seasons are probably best forgotten, but whilst their F1 campaign is currently something of a disaster, thanks to the dog of a Honda power unit in the back of their MCL32, their road car division is going from strength to strength. Top of the McLaren tree is this, the 900bhp petrol-electric P1.

Just 375 P1s were produced between 2013 and 2015, and thanks to a hybrid powertrain the P1 can run on electricity alone for about 30km. This stunning Technic recreation of McLaren’s hypercar is electric too, driven by LEGO’s excellent Power Functions motors. A remotely operated 4-speed gearbox and rear wing / air-brake are also included, along with fully independent suspension and opening doors.

Newcomer Ed Hoes (aka madcow) is the builder and there’s lots more to see on Flickr and via the Eurobricks forum here.
