A life size marvel
Melbourne, 14 March – On the Thursday of the first Grand Prix of the year in Melbourne, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa unveiled the first full scale model of a Ferrari Formula 1 car made out of LEGO bricks. The event was part of a new promotion run by Shell in Australia, in collaboration with Ferrari and the LEGO Group. As from 18 March, customers at Shell petrol stations will be able to get their hands on a limited edition model of some of the most evocative cars in the history of Ferrari. These will include the short wheelbase 250 GT Berlinetta, the F40, the FXX and the 458 Italia. To launch the promotion, a team of experts built up a 1:1 scale model of the Ferrari 150 ° Italia, the car with which the Maranello Scuderia competed in the 2011 Formula 1 World Championship. It took several months to design the model, which features real Pirelli race tyres, a seat big enough to accommodate a driver and an exact replica of the steering wheel, also made entirely from Lego bricks.
