If you head on over to the Speed Champions section on the LEGO website, you’ll find a short blurb that reads: “For the first time, kids can collect a double pack of McLaren LEGO® models featuring the classic F1 LM and the new Solus GT.” While that may ring true, let’s be honest for a second - at least 90% (yes, that’s a thumbsuck figure) of these kits will end up in the hands of adults and not kids. While the kits are usually easy to build, when you see the video by RacingBrick you’ll soon see there’s actually a trick to building these models that aren’t really mentioned in the accompanying instruction booklet. The kit rocks, it will make any McLaren fan very happy and that means this is an affordable (relative) birthday/holiday gift for that special someone. The kit works well because it features two cars that cover vastly different generations of iconic McLaren cars, from the past it has the legendary McLaren F1 in LM guise and in the present, it has the McLaren Solus GT. This premium set contains 581 pieces and it measures over 4 cm in height, 15 cm in length, and 7 cm in width, so once built they’re a decent enough size to cart around and show off to friends or school for show & tell days if the kit actually ended up in non-adults hands.
