Before we began this review , please note that this is LEGO MOC of McLaren P1 Hypercar by Bruno Jenson (brunojj1) which LEPIN stole the design. If you’re planning to get LEPIN 20087 , do pay for the design at brunojj1 rebrickable page. At least the designer would get something for his hard work.
The box of LEPIN 20087 with wording LEPIN Technician. It listed 3725 pieces of parts.
Side of the box.
Back of the box.
The inner box followed the design of LEGO Porsche and Bugatti sets. Five small boxes with parts inside and four tire rims slotted at the side. The middle compartment is for the instruction manual.
Thick instruction manual with 195 pages and 806 steps.
There are 73 bags of parts plus one bag of “spare parts”.
Building in progress. Make sure you check the movement of the gears are smooth before you proceed to the next steps. LEPIN technics parts aren’t as good as LEGO.
Side wheel with connection to steering wheel.
Printed part of logo of McLaren.
At this point, the overall size is similar to LEGO Bugatti.
3.8L V8 engine.
Slowly the outline of the McLaren started to take shape.
Butterfly doors that slide upward while you turn the gearing.
LEPIN Mclaren P1 completed.
There are changes in exhaust pipes compared to the original design.
Comparison with the original. LEPIN on the left, original MOC on the right.

LEPIN had made some modification in the design to the V8 engine and exhaust piping. Other than that, the gearing did work for the steering wheel, butterfly doors and retractable spoilers. Is this worth getting? If you want to save money on brick linking LEGO parts, and don’t mind minor change in design, this is for you. You may order LEPIN 20087 McLaren P1 from Aliexpress. Beside that, do pay for the instruction at brunojj1 rebrickable page. At least brunojj1 would get some compensation for this. LEGO don’t design this so it doesn’t matter whether you use LEGO or LEPIN parts. Thank you for reading our review.
