LEGO and McLaren team up to create the first Technic incarnation of an F1 car, but at what cost? No, literally, how much does a Lego McLaren F1 car cost and what real vehicle is it based on?
For the price of a Lego McLaren F1 car, you can buy 2,571 1×1 bricks
The crossover is very neat. Comprising 1,432 individual pieces, it marks LEGO’s foray into real-life motorsports.
But the price of the LEGO McLaren F1 car means only those with the spare cash can afford it – $179.99 in LEGO website.
For buyers elsewhere, it will cost: Germany €179.99 / UK £159.99 / AU$279.99 (via Bricktastic Blog).

To be fair, however, it’s far from Lego’s most expensive product. A Star Wars AT-AT™ can be had for a whopping $799,99, and a Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 model currently retails for more than double the price of a Lego Mclaren F1 car.
Will be available in March 2022
The LEGO McLaren Formula 1 car will be available to buy online starting Tuesday, March 1, 2022 – and its price point means at least free shipping.
