This life-size Ferrari Monza SP1 is made of Lego bricks. Know more
Lego toy cars replicating their real-life avatars are nothing new. However, a life-sized sportscar made of plastic Lego bricks is uncommon. However, visitors to Legoland in Denmark can enjoy exactly that. Ferrari has posted images of a life-size Monza SP1 that has been built with iconic Lego plastic bricks. The car claims to have been built as a part of the project “Ferrari Build and Race".
The original Ferrari Monza SP1 made its debut alongside the SP2 back in 2018 as a limited edition model as part of the Italian supercar manufacturer's Icona range. The Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 models took inspiration from the automaker's sportscars in the 1950s and early 1960s but came equipped with modern powertrains. The Lego block-made Monza SP1 replica comes as a tribute to the original model that grabbed the world's attention with high performance.
