Those looking to attend the 2022 Manila International Auto Show—whose grand opening is tomorrow, in case you need reminding—are expecting to see real cars at the event (of course). But there’s something for the kids, too (well, to be honest, even adult car fans will swoon when they see it). We’re talking about the real-life Ferrari 512 M race car that Lego is displaying at the trade show.

According to MIAS organizers, the thing measures 2,700mm long, 1,200m wide and 700mm. Also, it is said to weigh 280kg, and took 480 hours to build. “It is a faithful reproduction of the Lego Ferrari 512 M set,” they told us.

If you’re dropping by MIAS this weekend, you can see the Lego Ferrari 512 M at the Lego booth at the lobby of World Trade Center.

Let’s indulge the child in us once more. See you at the show!
