One of the most desirable sports cars of all time, the Ferrari F40, is now appearing for the first time as a LEGO product; available from 1 August 2015 online from the LEGO.com/shop, as well as in the 13 LEGO stores in Germany and Austria.

The LEGO set of the cult Ferrari F40 sports car, which was manufactured from 1987 to 1992, guarantees building fun across many generations. Just like the legendary original, the LEGO model fascinates with sleek, aerodynamic lines and a distinctive rear spoiler, as well as the bright red racing body. The super sports car replica is being released in the LEGO Creator Expert product line, and was developed by the LEGO Group in collaboration with Ferrari. The LEGO Ferrari F40 features numerous details, recreated with LEGO bricks. Looking through the car's hinged doors, you can quickly see that even the interior of the sports car is originally equipped. From door loops and a steering wheel with a Ferrari logo, to two red racing seats. Below the lift-up bonnet lid, there is the luggage compartment with a toolkit. A special windscreen element with printed A-pillars and tailor-made, cast wheel inserts with road-going tyres give this meticulously emulated model the final touches.

More LEGO Ferrari F40 product highlights for master builders aged 14 and above include:

 

  • 1,158 LEGO elements
  • Lift-up tailgate with vents
  • V8 engine with two turbochargers and quick release function
  • Flip-up headlamps

The LEGO Ferrari F40 is 8 cm tall, 27 cm long and 14 cm wide.
