Kids and kids at heart, if you've ever dreamt of owning your very own Ferrari supercar collection or Formula 1 team, today's your lucky day. Starting October 26, 2012, Pilipinas Shell is letting you build, race, and collect pint-sized LEGO Ferrari's brick-by-brick. They might not get the girls, but they should be just as fun to play with as the real deal.
Celebrating 60 years of passion for performance between Shell and Ferrari, there are a total of five (5) officially-licensed Ferraris and one (1) transport truck available, plus a special Ferrari pit crew. Put in some quick laps around Fiorano in Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso's 2011 F150° Italia Formula 1 car, race the Enzo's racing evolution - the Ferrari FXX, or revive the old glory days in a 1993 Ferrari F40 Competizione. But if you prefer to cruise around the streets of Modena, then either the 458 Italia or 1959 250 GT Berlinetta SWB should suit.
Providing full support to the team is the Ferrari pit crew that's composed of a Ferrari Refueilng Engineer, Shell Track Scientist, and Ferrari Race Mechanic. And there's the Scuderia Ferrari truck to transport all the team's staff and equipment in between races.
