If you love McLarens and LEGOs (and who doesn’t) and live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you are in for a treat.
A life-sized LEGO McLaren 720S will be making its last stop on its U.S. tour at the Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase on October 13th. The October 13th event takes place rain or shine from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas.
Life-Sized LEGO McLaren 720S
The 1:1 scale model LEGO McLaren 720S is made up of more than 280,000 LEGO bricks and weighs in at 3,200 pounds, which is a bit heavier than the road-going 720S’ weight of 2,828 pounds. Built around a steel frame, it took a team of six more than 2,000 hours to build the car by hand. In comparison, an actual McLaren 720S takes around 12 working days to assemble.
The McLaren 720S is available to order (pre-assembled) with a starting MRSP of $284,745. Younger fans might be interested in the #75880 LEGO Speed Champions McLaren 720S model at local retailers.
Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase
“While kids of all ages will marvel at the Lego McLaren, guests will also have the opportunity to get up close to several new McLarens in the Park Place Showcase,” said Liz Shafton, senior marketing manager at Park Place Dealerships and chair of the event. “We will feature the latest models from each of our manufacturers, including new Bentley, Maserati, Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus and more. Guests will be among the first in Texas to see the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan Luxury SUV.”
The Collector’s Concours will feature a dazzling display of vintage, luxury and supercars on the first fairway of the TPC Golf Course. Guests will have the opportunity to see the 1928 Rolls-Royce Phantom featured in the 1974 film “The Great Gatsby” which starred Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. There will be a 2018 Bugatti Chiron, Babe Ruth’s 1940 Lincoln Zephyr (a gift from the New York Yankees,) a 2006 Ford GT, and a stunning lineup of rare and unique vehicles.
The event, which sold out in its inaugural year, is open to the public with tickets ranging from $25 – $50 for general admission and $100 for VIP All Access, which includes access to the VIP Lounge with complimentary food and beverages, and entrance to the Highland Park Village fashion show.
