Hit the race track behind the wheel of a McLaren Senna GTR. Well, actually it’s behind the wheel of a Lego Technic McLaren in the new video game Asphalt 9: Legends.
Until October 30, players are invited to take part in the game’s first Lego Technic McLaren Grand Prix event, with racers competing to win prizes.
“Those who make it through two adrenaline-fueled qualifying rounds will win a place in the hotly contested final rounds from October 22 to October 31,” McLaren Automotive notes in its news release about the game.
“Only nine legends selected among winner pools will be crowned champion at the end and be in with the chance to win Lego Technic McLaren Senna GTR sets and in-game rewards.”
The gamified Lego supercar is equipped with the same features as the real-life Senna GTR, making it “one of the most extreme contenders on the grid,” the automaker adds.
Over 160,000 digital triangles were used to design the digital Lego car, including its V8 engine, moving pistons, aerodynamic curves, opening dihedral doors and blue livery.
“Through this collaboration between McLaren Automotive, the Lego Group and Gameloft, we are excited that supercar, racing and McLaren fans will now be able to experience and share the thrill of driving our McLaren Senna GTR ultimate racer in its Lego Technic form in an incredible gaming experience – and with the chance to win some fantastic prizes!” McLaren’s chief marketing officer Gareth Dunsmore is quoted.
The Asphalt 9: Legends video game is playable on PC, mobile and Nintendo Switch.
