LEGO replica of F1 Ferrari car to go on display around S'pore

Today is the last day of the F1 Ferrari Lego Car display around Singapore. More than 200,000 LEGO bricks were used to build a replica of an F1 Ferrari car. Unveiled ahead of the week during the F1 night race 20 Sep 2012 at Singapore Grand Prix, the Lion City is the second Asian stop for the big toy car after Hong Kong.

A team of 16 people at LEGO Productions in the Czech Republic built the 1:1 replica.

The car took over six months to design and plan, and 10 days to assemble.

LEGO bricks were individually assembled and glued on a steel frame.

Sporting real Pirelli race tyres, a race seat belt and a steering wheel, it is able to accommodate an adult in the cockpit.

Measuring 5.4 metres in length, it will be mounted on the back of a commercial vehicle and will tour the island from September 22 to October 1.

Among the planned stops are Raffles Place and Jurong Point Shopping Centre.
