Start saving your pennies if you fancy a life size Lego replica of the 2017 RS17 F1 car.
No oily engine but it does come with real Pirelli tyres.  :D

  • Newey would have kittens with the aerodynamic issues those lego bricks would cause  :D

    It's going in the garage with the rest of my lego.

    Lego is actually the largest producer of tires in the world by total unit count.

  • For added realism, you could mount the smoke generator from a Lionel model steam loco in the back to simulate a combusting Renault engine.

  • Didn't James May make a life size working motorbike out of Lego? Or was it made out of Meccano? I know he made a life size Lego house....that was soooooo cool.

  • With all those gaps between the lego bricks, cool would certainly be a way to describe it!

  • Now you are just being picky Luke, you have to think of the positives....
    1= it looks pretty
    2= free air-con on a hot day
    3= if you don't like it you can always knock it down and start again....crikey I feel I am going into an Ed Sheeran song. He is so lovely, I have met him a few times.
    4= you can re locate yourself when ever you want  :D

  • An Ed Sheeran track coming on the radio is my cue to volume off, in my opinion he's only made 1 decent track and that's Castle on the Hill.

  • You leave Mr Sheeran alone Ian  |-( He is lovely and so normal. When I saw him he just came over and had a chat. Not like a normal stuck up celebrity.

    Ian... You actually know the name of an Ed Sheeran song?  I now think you could be protesting too much!

  • ... I have to admit, I do like 'Castle on the Hill' also.  It's one of those songs where most of us can relate to the growing up message one way or another.
