Few cars are as iconic as a red Ferrari. Many children grow up with toy models of this stunning automobile. Now, LEGOLAND is bringing another way for children and adults alike to enjoy the design of these Italian cars. A new exhibit at the LEGOLAND Billund Resort in Denmark called Build and Race features a lifesize replica of the Ferrari Monza SP1, which is constructed from 383,610 LEGO bricks.
The amazing sculpture bears an uncanny resemblance to the real thing. However, unlike the actual car, this version sports a unique ridged texture as a result of the thousands of stacked bricks. The hood, lights, and even the controls are made from LEGOs. A genuine steering wheel and set of rubber tires bring the piece to life. Due to the number of elements involved, it's no surprise that the installation weighs over 2,900 pounds.
In addition to sharing this stunning piece of design, the Build and Race exhibit also includes interactive attractions for guests to make their own LEGO Ferrari—but on a much smaller scale. LEGOLAND will even scan the amateur cars and place them on a virtual version of the Ferrari Fiorano test track. This exhibit opened in Denmark on May 18, and will be opening at the British LEGOLAND in summer 2023.
