Ferrari 488 GTE

This Italian stallion that has graced the straights and bends of Le Mans is the perfect long-term build

The LEGO® Technic™ Ferrari 488 GTE ‘AF Corse #51’ is a special example of Ferrari’s foremost endurance racer. Blooded in formulas such as the FIA World Endurance Championship and the European Le Mans series, the full-sized version boasts one hell of a racing pedigree including a category win in the 2019 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. And now it has been beautifully translated into this scale model. There are some 1,677 pieces to assemble, making it a challenging yet therapeutic construction to while away the weekends – and the end result will have real presence when you put it on display in your office.

There’s a raft of detailed features that will be appreciated by fans of fine engineering, including a V8 engine with moving pistons, a functioning steering wheel and gloriously realised front and back suspension. The doors and the hood also open easily to allow close scrutiny of your handiwork. Original stickers and authentic colours allow your creation stay faithful to the livery of this proven winner from the stable of the Prancing Horse.

To help you immerse yourself even further into the lineage of this purebred racer, this set comes with a special building instruction book featuring exclusive content. This includes details about the car and the AF Corse 51 team, founded by former racing driver Amato Ferrari, and represented on track by illustrious talent such as former F1 supremo Giancarlo Fisichella.

Simply put, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the Ferrari anorak, you can’t really go wrong with this baby – especially if that anorak is you.
