Lego has an ongoing partnership than currently spans more than 15 years with Ferrari, though this is the first time a Ferrari is offered in the Lego Technic form.
The Lego Technic Ferrari 488 GTE will be available at all Lego Certified Store, Legoland, as well as Lego’s official channels on Shopee and Lazada from 4-January onwards. It is priced at RM 799.90.
“Having the chance to recreate a Ferrari in LEGO Technic form is an absolute childhood dream come true” says Lars Krogh Jensen, Designer, LEGO Technic. “Ferrari is renowned for their truly incredible vehicles so I knew I had to push the boundaries of the LEGO Technic system to do justice to the dominating racetrack idol. This model captures the sophisticated silhouettes of the iconic car while paying homage to its engineering powers to capture the true essence of the 488 GTE. The build is a great challenge for any fan who appreciates excellent design and is interested in learning more about the engineering and technology that goes into crafting such an impressive car.”
