What happens when more than 819 horsepower combines with thousands of LEGO® bricks? The answer has sped into LEGOLAND® Florida Resort in the form of a life-size LEGO® Ferrari 296 GTS!.


The amazing LEGO model made a pit stop at the Park’s front entrance before rolling into its permanent home in the all-new interactive attraction, LEGO® Ferrari Build and Race. Set to open March 8 at the family theme park, the experience will put the power, speed, and luxury of Ferrari directly into the creative hands of guests of all ages.

The LEGO Ferrari 296 GTS model took Master Model Builders 1,850 hours to build. This LEGOLAND “pit crew” involved a designer, six Master Model Builders and three animators to ensure every detail matched that of the real sports car itself.

Matching a Ferrari 296 GTS to the finest detail, the LEGO version is 15 feet long by 7 1/2 feet wide by 4 feet tall. It also weighs almost two tons! With working headlights, a driver’s door that actually opens, and a roaring engine, the LEGO Ferrari 296 GTS is designed to inspire guests as they enter the garage of the new interactive LEGO Ferrari Build and Race attraction.
