Renault Sport Formula One™ Team and LEGO® have formed a major partnership driven by passion to mark the 40th anniversary of Renault’s involvement in F1. L’Atelier Renault is to display a full-sized R.S.17 Formula 1 car made entirely of LEGO bricks, plus a brand-new set of activities for young and older visitors alike. As of November 30, the LEGO® F1 R.S.17 – a 5m40 full-sized version entirely built out of the famous building blocks – will be displayed exclusively at L’Atelier Renault.
This unique and exclusive creation made of 600,000 LEGO® pushes the boundaries of the brand’s creativity even further.
After more than three weeks of painstaking work, the LEGO® R.S.17 will take pride of place inside L’Atelier Renault to the delight of F1 and LEGO® fans alike. Featuring tyres, a bucket seat and a steering wheel which were actually used on F1 circuits, the car is sure to create a buzz at Renault’s international showcase.
Visitors will be invited to take a seat in the R.S.17 and immortalise the moment with a photograph. As the icing on the cake, L’Atelier Renault has invited Father Christmas to come and share this magical experience during the holidays!
