Who’s doesn’t have a box of Lego in the house? The little bricks you can make almost anything out of and after hours of play there’s always one you end up standing on long after the kids have tidied up!
Whether it’s houses, boats, Star Wars or Cars it seems those clever Lego people can create wonders from bricks. Now it seems the latest thing is life-sized models made completely from Lego bricks and various car companies are getting involved, the latest is Scuderia Ferrari Formula One team.
Lego’s official Facebook page uploaded a video of its team constructing a 1:1 scale model of the 2017 Scuderia Ferrari SF70H Formula One race car driven by Kimi Raikkonen and current championship leader Sebastian Vettel. According to the video’s description, the build process took no less than 750 hours to complete, and used 349,911 individual bricks.
The car looks extremely life-like, with accurately designed brake ducts, aero pieces, and sponsor stickers. Even the steering wheel is built with immaculate detail. It’s only when you get up close do you realize how un-aerodynamic the body actually is.
The video features a bunch of different time-lapse angles showing the build process start to finish. Watch for yourself to see how the Lego factory put this car together.
