Last month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, McLaren unveiled a 720S built entirely out of Lego to commemorate the model's launch. As you can imagine, it took a team of people a considerable amount of time to complete. Fortunately for us, McLaren got the whole process on video.
According to , the Lego 720S took 2000 man-hours to complete—slightly more than the 12 days it takes to build a real 720S—and used no less than 280,000 Lego bricks in the process. Nearly the entire car is made from the tiny plastic pieces, save for the bottom frame, wheels, and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
The video below is a minute-long time-lapse documenting the entire build process from start to finish. The last 13,000 bricks were added during the Festival of Speed, a spectacle that raised over $3500 for Goodwood's official charity.
Watch for yourself as the supercar Lego toy comes to life.
