LEGO Technic 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF CORSE #51 revealed [News]

Today, LEGO revealed the next Technic Ferrari car, the legendary Ferrari 488 GTE. The new 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF CORSE #51 set is a massive 1,677-piece replica featuring all the real car’s authentic features and beautiful design. The set will be available starting January 1, 2021, priced at $169.99/€179,99/£169.99.

According to the press release, the new Ferrari 488 GTE will be equipped with fully independent suspension, a functioning steering wheel, and a fake V8 engine under the hood.

Conceptually, the new Technic Ferrari model is similar to the 2019’s LEGO Technic 42096 Porsche 911 RSR. Both cars are of the same scale being smaller and less detailed than LEGO Technic supercars like 42115 Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.

Once completed, 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF is 48cm (19 in) long, making it just 2cm (1 in) shorter than 42096 Porsche 911.

    I wish they could’ve come up with a better solution for the headlights instead just stickers, given the size. But this looks great, and looks like it’ll still work without all the race livery.

    @winstonheard since the shape of the pieces is curved in multiple directions, those are prints and not stickers. Also, knowing how much work is devoted to each model, I tend to think that this is the best solution possible, considering that the final design must be approved by Ferrari as well. Headlights are one of the more unique elements of any car, so I guess there’s no room for experiments. On the other hand, Lambo’s headlights are brick-built, so obviously designers consider a lot of options before coming up with the final design.

    Brick built headlights increase the part count and thus the pricing expectations. This is not a top tier model, much like the most recent Porsche. So there are limitations.

    Yeah, but the Porsche has built headlights. And other technic cars of this size also do. Even the much smaller McLaren seems to have them. I get that the shape of the Ferrari lights are a challenge and perhaps this the only way it was approved. But I can’t imagine that part count was the deciding factor here.
