We’ve never built a full-scale Lego version of anything, though we’d imagine such a feat would be quite a challenge. It’s no wonder, then, that it took a professional team of Lego engineers 750 hours to piece together this 1:1 Scuderia Ferrari SF16H F1 race car, made up of nearly 350,000 Lego pieces (349,911 to be exact).
The quoted work time doesn’t include all of the work that went into developing the pieces before the Scuderia Ferrari race car was assembled. There were the design and technical development hurdles to jump before production could begin, just as there would be for an actual car. So before the team spent 750 hours building the 1,250-pound Lego Scuderia Ferrari F1 race car, they first spent 844 hours developing it.
Lego is now offering a toy version of the Scuderia Ferrari SF16H F1 race car as part of its Speed Champion series, only this is a much smaller, simplified iteration, and is comprised of just 184 pieces. The price of the toy is $14.99, and you can order it or find out more information by clicking here.
