There’s a new LEGO Technic Grand Prix Racer model named Grand Prix Racer (42000). This is LEGO’s second non-F1-team-specific offering, which I find odd considering they built a lifesized LEGO Ferrari last year.
It has a very good video, covering the build and actual review, here:
The video shows model 8674, which is the latest F1 Ferrari. I actually own the older version of that (8157) and I still proudly display that at home (more than 8 years after I built it). But one complaint I did have with those Ferraris is the lack of an independent suspension (which this newer model has). If I wasn’t paying for other more important things, I’d seriously consider getting this newer car and updating the Ferrari to allow it to have a working suspension.
The motor-ready capability appeals to me as well. It means there is a (somewhat-functional) working DRS on this car!
Anyway, does anyone else here own/collect any of the F1 models? What do you think of them and would you buy this new model?
