Lego has teamed up with Ferrari to produce a truly awesome toy; the world’s first full-scale model of a Ferrari Formula 1 race car.
At the first Grand Prix of the year in Melbourne, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa were on hand to unveil the Lego creation. The event was part of a promotion ran by Shell in Australia along with the Italian automaker and the Lego Group.
Shell stations in Australia are offering limited edition models of Ferrari vehicles including the classic 250 GT Berlinetta, the F40, the FXX, and the recent 458 Italia. To celebrate the special promotion, the Lego Group helped build the 1:1 scale model of the Ferrari 150 Italia, the race car Maranello Scuderia competed with in the 2011 Formula 1 World Championship. It took several months to build the entire project, which also includes actual Pirelli race tires, a seat that fits a driver, and a replica of the steering wheel.
