Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonzo (pictured right on video picture)and Felipe Massa (pictured left on video picture) who are in Melbourne, Australia attending the 2013 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix, unveiled the first life-sized full scale model of a 2011 Ferrari Formula 1 completely put together using Lego pieces reports Ausmotive.com. The global energy company Shell is running the Ferrari promotion which has been ongoing for a while now along with the automaker and toy company.
Beginning March 18, Shell petrol customers in Australia and in other parts of the world (not the U.S.) will be able to purchase limited edition, small scale replicas of six of the Italian automaker's heart stoppers: the F40, 458 Italia, FXX, 250 GT Berlinetta, the Scuderia Ferrari Truck and even a small version of this F150 Italia.
The Italian auto replica was built by 16 teams of Lego experts. It took a whopping six months to blueprint, set the wheels in motion and then ten days to gather and painstakingly arrange the hundreds of thousands of Lego pieces and afix them onto a steel chassis.
The replica has actual Pirelli racing tires, a driver's seat that can accommodate an adult and the steering wheel is designed exactly to fit the specifications of the actual one--all made out of Legos. There isn't one thing on the model that isn't made out of the fave childhood toy.
Interested in purchasing the featured mini vehicles, check them out on eBay. Even though the price has been kicked up a notch, if you want them bad enough, place your bid.
