CARLSBAD, Calif. (April 26, 2022) – It may not have more than 470 horsepower, but it’s built out of more than 358,000 LEGO® elements, weighs more than 3,000 pounds and is a one-of-a-kind replica of one of the most celebrated Ferrari vehicles ever created…the first-ever life-size Ferrari F40 model developed by the LEGO Group will be on display as a part of LEGOLAND® California Resort’s new attraction, LEGO Ferrari Build and Race, opening May 12, 2022.
The Ferrari F40 model took a team of designers and builders more than 1,800 hours to develop and more than 1,900 hours to construct the high-performance ultra-luxury sports car. Resembling the actual F40 Ferrari, the LEGO version is similar in size at 14 feet in length, more than six feet wide, 4 feet tall and a wheelbase at 8 feet.
The new LEGO model will be featured in the garage area of LEGOLAND California’s new interactive attraction, LEGO Ferrari Build and Race. Future builders, drivers and enthusiasts will get a chance to sit inside, take pictures and most of all, be inspired by the life-size LEGO vehicle. The garage is one of three interactive zones which also includes the build and test area, and digital racetrack for guests to digitally race their own LEGO Ferrari against other cars for the fastest lap. The new attraction places guests in the driver’s seat as they use their creativity and imagination to build, test and race.
Build and Race will be included in the price of admission to LEGOLAND California Resort. For LEGOLAND California Resort ticket prices, operating schedule and additional information, visit www.LEGOLAND.com or call 760-918-LEGO (5346).
