Shift Happens: Building a McLaren 720S …LEGO car

Awhile back, the good folks at McLaren sent me a LEGO kit. It’s part of the LEGO Speed Champions series, and this one features the new McLaren 720S. It also has a designer. He’s got his drafting table, a model car, a cup of coffee, and a lamp. He’s also got a helmet, because he can jump from being the designer to being the driver.
The kit is a fun toy to have on my desk, and it was pretty easy to put together. There are a few single block pieces that are a little small, and the stickers can be tricky if you don’t take your time… especially with oafish hands like mine. But it really was a relatively quick and easy job piecing this one together.
Now I want to find more Speed Champion sets to join this one…
[Disclaimer: McLaren sent me this kit out of the blue. I think they retail in the $20 range.]

    That’s Lego.
    A Jaguar XJ220 in Lego would look similar. How long till we have a lego XJ220?
    As some compensation, how often do we see more than one British supercar of the same type in one picture?
    How about nine…
    Or even more, 32 in this picture out of the 41 present, plus, of course, another set of XJ220 mechanicals tucked under that old Ford Transit at the back, at Silverstone to celebrate the XJ220’s 25th birthday
    Happy 25th birthday XJ220.

      I can’t help but think of the Crash Masters series when I think of the XJ220.

        Oh, Man. TNT!
        I think we may have been the only 2 people who remember Fast, er’ Crashmasters.
