LEGO Technic 42172 McLaren P1 Officially Revealed | August 2024

The LEGO Technic theme is well known for capturing some of the world's best and most iconic vehicles and that trend has well and truly continued in 2024. But the latest vehicle coming to the LEGO Technic theme is a brand new Supercar which have started releasing bi-yearly, exclusive to LEGO and LEGO shop@home. The latest LEGO Technic Supercar is 42172 McLaren P1 which has today been officially revealed for a 1st of August 2024 release.

The McLaren branded supercar will retail for $449.99 / €449.99 / $389.99 with only a total of 3,893 pieces included. However, as you can tell from the official images, the P1 is a substantial size and similar to previous LEGO Technic Supercars coming in at that 1:8 supercar scale. Just like the last Technic Supercar of 42143 Ferrari Daytona SP3, 42172 also includes a printed 18+ information plaque to go alongside the main build of the supercar.

The British sportscar of the McLaren P1 is complete with all its unique features seen in real life. The 7-speed gearbox with its shifter drum, the suspension and the V8 piston engine have all been translated into brick-built form to showcase the excellence of the McLaren branded car. The LEGO McLaren P1 has an adjustable rear wing along with the opening doors with their butterfly-style mechanism, unique to many iconic supercars.

The LEGO Technic 18+ model is in a yellow/orange colour - perfect to go alongside the other bright colours in the LEGO Technic Supercar collection. Like the real-world car, the LEGO Technic version features its own unique serial number, which gives you access to exclusive online content. An advanced build with plenty of advanced play functions makes it the perfect 1:8 brick-built version of the McLaren P1 which released over 10 years ago.
