McLaren to reverse its Australian sales slide

British supercar maker McLaren is on a mission to reverse its first sales slide since launching in Australia, after deliveries dropped by 24% last year. After more than tripling its annual sales from 2012 to 2016 – from 23 to 93 deliveries – McLaren peaked with 116 vehicles reported as sold in 2017. However, sales hit the brakes in 2018 with just 88 finding buyers locally.

McLaren 600LT v Senna drag race - video

McLaren has three distinct tiers in its model range: Sport, Super and Ultimate. But the line between the three continues to blur, thanks to cars like the 600LT. With 441kW and 620Nm on tap, the 600LT is capable of hitting 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and keeps pulling to 328km/h if given a long enough stretch of road. That's fairly super in essentially every measurable way.

The full-scale 1:1 model took nearly 5000 hours to assemble, according to the British supercar specialist, and comprises of 467,854 individual Lego components put together by a team of 42 men and women from the Lego build team. Interestingly, the Lego Senna is actually rather heavy – at 1700kg, it's around 500kg more than the production car.
