The LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE “AF Corse #51” celebrated a milestone as being the company’s first model to take on the legendary Modena circuit in Italy. This was achieved by installing a brick version of the supercar on a real Ferrari 488 GTE, driven by Giancarlo Fisichella, Ferrari Competizioni GT’s official driver.
A special rig was required to mount the LEGO model onto the front of the race car, consisting of a mechanical arm specifically designed for this occasion. Then they used 8 cameras and 2 drones to film everything when the model launched at full speed onto a real racetrack, from just about every point of view. The LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE managed to reach a top speed of 129 mph.
