F1 stars Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris now have a back up McLaren to play with at the Australian Grand Prix this week. It's a LEGO replica made with more than 288,000 bricks...

The toy giant revealed the awesome project at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit ... showing a life-size plastic version of the orange McLaren F1 car, which reportedly took 1893 hours to complete, according to IGN.

LEGO Masters Australia judge Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught led the charge on assembling the car ... and get this -- it actually includes real mechanical features!!

The replica has moving pistons for its engine, a locking differential, and steering activated from the cockpit.

The car is totally detailed -- it even has all the sponsorship logos!!

While the LEGO car won't be able to speed around like the real thing, drivers are still able to actually SIT in the car ... which Ricciardo did in a video posted by F1 this week.

With the price of Legos today, probably cost the same as the real one.
