Lego has introduced a new supercar to its lineup, in the shape of a Ferrari F40.
Lego fanatics will go wild for the newest model shown by the company, which is nothing more than a red-finished Ferrari F40. The exotic vehicle has been assembled using 1,158 pieces and it stands at 27 cm (10 inches) long, 14 cm (5 inches) wide and 8 cm (3 inches) tall, getting the pop-up headlights, the doors which can open, racing seats in the cabin, cabled door handles and several other goodies which are making this replica as realistic as possible. Keep in mind that Lego has worked closely with Ferrari in order to develop this set, which will be offered for sale later this month for 99.99 EUR / 89.99 USD / 69.99 GBP.
In the meantime, we will remind you that the Ferrari F40 has been produced between 1987 and 1996, in just 1,311 units. The Maranello born exotic model has been designed by Pininfarina and it was offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a rear-mid engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar stands at 4,358 mm long, 1,970 mm wide and 1,124 mm tall, weighing 1,100 kg and riding on a 2,450 mm wheelbase. It has a 2.9 liter turbocharged V8 engine under its hood, rated at 478 HP (357 kW), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in just 3.8 seconds and a top speed standing in at 320 km/h (200 mph). This was in fact the first road legal production vehicle to break the 320 km/h (200 mph) barrier.
