After a childhood of pushing plastic building blocks together I still have a weakness for Lego, even as I approach the wrong end of my thirties. So when you combine Lego with cars I’m practically unable to resist.
This was the hook that led to me buying large quantities of Shell V-Power last winter. Not only is it good for your engine, as I discovered during a day with Shell, it was also the only way to acquire a complete set of limited edition Lego Ferrari models.
The good news is that Lego and Shell have teamed up yet again for another range of Ferrari models. This time they include exotics such as the F138, legendary 250 GTO and F12berlinetta.
The bad news is you need to spend at least £30 on Shell V-Power Nitro+ (petrol or diesel) then add £1.99 for the Lego kit. You’re also limited to one per purchase, which means you’ll have to rack up some serious mileage between 6th November and 31st December to get all six.
To celebrate the City of London has established a series of Lego only lanes in the capital’s streets to make sure these special Ferraris can travel around unhindered and safely away from the bigger metal cars. I dread to think what a Routemaster bus would do to one of them.
