The most iconic racing car of all time has officially been presented by Lego. This new masterpiece is a creator Expert set with exactly one thousand and hundred and fifty eight pieces and an endless number of features and details to enjoy.
I think that Lego has once again done a great job because all of its major details are all there! The rims are just like the originals (the designer mentions that they were especially created for this model…) and at the front, there is not only a nice big red hood that easily opens showing all the interior, but also a couple of pop up lights, traditional of this model.
The big doors can also be easily opened, showing all the details in the interior where it’s possible to find among other things, a steering wheel with a Ferrari logo, a couple of racing seats and of course the seat belts. The cockpit has also a new windshield that was, just like the rims, especially created for the F40.
Finally at the back, just behind the cockpit, we have the powerful V8 engine with 2.9 liters and all its amazing details. But the best part is that the engine can be easily detached from the car in order to enjoy even more all its beauty.
This awesome set will start retailing next month for VIP members and on August for generic public. The price seems to be a pleasant surprise: 90 dollars which is definitely a pretty nice deal for this iconic fantastic with more than a thousand bricks. Please have a look at the press release and extended gallery:
