LEGO LEGO-lized McLaren Senna And The Result Was, Well, Not Quite Senna

The LEGO version of the McLaren Senna is far from the real deal, but at least, it lets you have a piece of the crazy ride from the British sports car maker without paying millions.

It looks nothing like the McLaren Senna we saw awhile ago, save for the colors. However, if you are a super fan of McLaren who need to have it all, except for the real deal because you can’t afford it, then the LEGO 75892 McLaren Senna should make for a good addition.

Full-size LEGO McLaren 720S Finished By Fans At Goodwood Festival of Speed

At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed that concluded earlier this month, McLaren had quite a bit to show off. Among the fleet, there was something particularly intriguing.
