The most extreme track-focused road car built by McLaren has been brought down to size, with interlocking plastic bricks replacing carbon-fibre, for the new McLaren Senna LEGO Speed Champions edition.

Each full-size McLaren Senna takes close to 300 hours of painstaking hand assembly at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, luckily the 219 pieces in each 15cm-long model go together rather more quickly.

The kit includes one thing that not even the real Senna comes with: its own buildable wind tunnel. For a car that can generate an amazing 800kg of downforce at 155mph it is just the thing for junior aerodynamicists to check out the Senna’s exceptional aerodynamic properties.

The model of course features the front splitter, roof snorkel, diffuser and giant rear wing without which no McLaren Senna would be complete.

Finished in Victory Grey with contrasting orange highlights, the model even comes with a set of interchangeable wheel rims, a removable windscreen and its own minifigure driver. Attired in a McLaren race suit complete with Pirelli  logo.

With a recommended retail price of £13 you could buy more than 50,000 McLaren Senna LEGO Speed Champions models for the price of one real McLaren Senna.
