One of the most Iconic cars of all time, the Ferrari F40 is probably also one of the most sought after collector sports car in this day and age. It can fetch anywhere from $700,000 - $900,000. No, those numbers are not a typo. And that price does not include a jack or a spare tire. Insurance will run you an extra $25,000-30,000 per year. So what's a man to do if that amount of dough is just a bit out of your reach?

Well LEGO just might save the day. Or at least we can have a nice looking replica in our house. You might even get to brag about building our own Ferrari F40 this way. LEGO has finally announced Ferrari F40 set 10248 consisting of 1158 pieces and it will be available in August 2015 for MSRP of US$89.99. Below are some of the specs of this exciting new set. Don't forget to check out the pics either!

    Awesome job, Lego. A 1987 Ferarri is definitely priced beyond most budgets. A true lego collector can afford this pretty red replica. I love the cute little details they put on the tires. It looks just like the specs they put on real tires. Lego has put a lot of firsts in this Ferarri.

    That’s so many parts, but what a classic! I love how much of a challenge it looks like, and the Cherry Red was the perfect touch for a Ferrari! This ones definitely more affordable than most out there lol! You can tell they put a lot of space for details and meticulous attention to creation which makes this a real special, dare I say limited-edition product or at least one for the books. I hardly think the price is too steep, and besides, where else or what others have you ever seen made by Lego like this? The headlights and taillights are so cool and modern looking–really nice touch! The engine-block looks so sophisticated and intricately designed, the kids would have a blast making one of these (probably ideally with a parent)! I hope in the near future Lego starts to make aircraft and other land vehicle–like military–in models like this and if/when they do I believe they’ll reach a more mature (and perhaps newer) adult-crowd consumer audience.
