Built the LEGO Ferrari F40 set. I been eagerly awaiting this moment the first I heard about the set in January. My all time favorite super car and it’s in LEGO form!

Official Ferrari Product! ...Fancy :)

The box has a good amount of weight to it and with over 1000 pieces I see why. The thick instruction manual adds weight too.

Got my pieces sorted out and finished the 1st step

Now it’s starting to look like a car.

Love these seats!

Advertisement

Done :D Built it in 2 days.

Heres a comparison of the LEGO model and a real F40.

You can see some inaccuracies, like the fender badge is too low, front chin needs to be out more, etc, but it’s LEGO, made to look like a F40 made of LEGO and the designer did a damn good job.

A few parts of the car are attached by clever techniques like the vents are held on by a clip attached to the grey bars.

All the doors open.

The roof is strong and you can pick up the model without it falling apart!

So sexy :D

Headlights manually open.

Can it fit a model team technic figure?

Advertisement

Uhhh... nope.

Removed the seat and still a tight squeeze. He can’t reach the steering wheel or shifter!

2 RPM gauges!?!

This hood is sure heavy.

Advertisement

Ahhhh!!!

Panel gaps you could f*** :P (credit to Andrew P Collins )

I hope you are trying to open the door.

Advertisement

Also removeable engine! I never removed an engine so easily.

Advertisement

Perfect place to take a nap.

Advertisement

No spare tire on this model. Comes with a can of fix a flat and this is more than a flat tire :(

Advertisement

What kind of Ferrari is this? Drum brakes and wheel covers? :P

Advertisement

Weighs 1 lb 11.7oz

Advertisement

Not as much as this crane :D

Advertisement

Seems to be in scale.

Overall this is one of the best LEGO sets I ever built and lots of interesting building techniques I can use in my own creations. So many 1x2 plates, slopes, tiles, and small parts turn into a work of art.

The model feels solid, hood is a bit heavy and have to install a hood prop for it to stay open. Holding the car upside down will make the prop fall out. Chassis is not detailed so seeing the chassis wouldn’t be necessary. A bit disapointed a figure cannot fit inside and there are two RPM gauges on the instrument cluster. LEGO could of made stickers like the Ferrari logo on the steering wheel.
