LEGO revealed the LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE “AF CORSE #51” today. It will be available from January 1st, 2021 from LEGO.com, LEGO stores, and other retailers globally, priced at $169.99/€179,99/£169.99.
This Ferrari 488 GTE looks to fall into the same category as the LEGO Technic Porsche 911 RSR. Which is great because I feel like Technic sets around that have 1500 pieces or more actually look more like their real-life counterpart. The newly announced LEGO Technic McLaren Senna GTR only has 830 pieces and that seems to be showing as it looks a bit less like the real deal.
This fierce-looking model features front and rear suspension, aerodynamic curves, and a V8 engine with moving pistons. Original race number, sponsor stickers, and the authentic Tricolore paint job add the perfect finish to this epic model.
LEGO modeled this set after a real-life counterpart and added almost the same amount of stickers in the process. I’m not sure how I feel about that because it looks like an insane amount. It may look even better without any. But time will tell I guess.
The overall set does look great on paper and it’s packed with authentic features. Its beautiful design elements making it a true expression of Ferrari’s endurance racer.
