If it’s late May in an even year, it must be time to reveal a new Technic Supercar, and this year the Prancing Horse has its turn as the LEGO Technic team unveils the Ferrari Daytona SP3. The ‘Real Life’ Daytona SP3 is a limited edition vehicle unveiled in 2021: Only 599 will be built, retailing for $2.29 million apiece.
The set will be released on 1st June and has 3778 pieces. It will retail for €/$ 399.99, £349.99, 659.99 AUD, 499.99 CAD
Supercar lovers can now place themselves firmly in the driving seat of Ferrari’s latest masterpiece with the new LEGO® Technic™ Ferrari Daytona SP3. This 3,778-piece model is packed full of details and functions that embody the engineering prowess and elegant design of the unparalleled sports racer.
To capture the essence of racing spirit at the heart of the Ferrari brand, the new 1:8 scale LEGO Technic model boasts a functioning 8-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shifter, a V12 engine with moving pistons and striking silver lacquered rims. Fans can get even closer to the action by recreating the Ferrari Daytona SP3’s elegant design and sleek aerodynamics as they build this traffic-stopping red model.
A pair of working butterfly doors open to unveil the sleek interior with a perfectly recreated cockpit with the prancing horse logo resplendent on the steering wheel, adding the final touches to this visionary model.
This fourth addition to the LEGO Technic Ultimate Car Concept series measures over 5.5 inches (14 cm) high, 23 inches (59 cm) long and 9.5 inches (25 cm) wide when fully built. Proud owners can get even more immersed with the build by going to www.LEGO.com/Ferrari-Daytona-SP3 for exclusive content.
Speaking about the showstopping model, Niels B. Christiansen, LEGO Group CEO said: “This model is a testament to the pursuit of excellence that lies at the core of the Ferrari and LEGO Group ethos. No detail has been overlooked in the design and as someone with an engineering background myself, I’m blown away by the attention to detail and precision of the model at such as small scale. We’re incredibly lucky to be able to partner with Ferrari to help fans turn their dreams into a reality as they build this standout example of racing excellence for real with this new set.”
The LEGO Technic Ferrari Daytona SP3 will be available from June 1, 2022 exclusively from LEGO Stores globally, then in many retailers worldwide from August 1, 2022.
For fans that want to get even closer to the action, Ferrari and the LEGO Group have opened their doors to give supercar enthusiasts a sneak peek behind the scenes of the model’s design in an exclusive coffee table style book. The book delves deep into the innovation and engineering excellence that unites both brands and takes a closer look at the collaborative process of conceptualizing, designing and producing the model, featuring interviews from LEGO Group and Ferrari designers and third-generation LEGO Group owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen on why the model means so much to him. The LEGO Technic Daytona SP3, The Sense of Perfection coffee book will be available exclusively on LEGO.com globally from June 1, 2022 in an exclusive print run of 5000 copies.
The Sense Of Perfection will have a retail price of 80 euro. Unfortunately, the limited print run combined with a broad fan base is bound to cause a significant number of people running out. We are uncertain at this point as to just how the book will be distributed internationally.
Otherwise, like the other supercars before it, this is bound to be a highly sought after set, although it will be around for a couple of years.
