Recommendation: meh 4.87 / 5 from 23 reviews

Great set for the price. Detail was really good.... would love to see a 4000 piece version of the senna but overall great set. Only challenge was had to find a piece from my collection to put side mirror on as it's the first ever set I've had with a missing piece!!! But out of over 200 sets can't really complain

Recommendation: no 7 / 10 by VBBN

When I went to rate this set, I decided to first compare it with the ZR1 and the ratings Jim had given when it was first reviewed. Overall, I found myself rating this set lower in most categories, dropping it's score by an average of .9. I think this is a fair rating; When I look at these technic cars, I expect that each time a new one is released, that we will see improvement. In the 1:8 scale range, the Chrion and Sian massively improve upon the rough GT3 RS. When I look at this set compared to the ZR1, I see 251 more parts, but less functionality.

I seemed to have complained about it quite a lot but actually I do like it. It is too narrow, but when viewing from most angles that is not an issue, and it's a pretty good rendition of the car given the size and Technic part constraints. I also appreciate the smaller scale: big is not always better, particularly when it comes to trying to display a large collection! This one will fit just about anywhere.

Recommendation: meh by Tim Johnson

There's a lot of potential on display. The parts are useful, the new mould fills an essential gap in the Technic panel part family, and the whole rear half of the completed model is beautiful. Unfortunately the printing and the bungled front section hit the set right where it hurts the most.

In the end it all depends on how you look at the model, If you are looking for a great looking display model, the McLaren is the better option. If you want a cool car that you can rebuild into a number of other cool models, the Chevrolet is your car.

Recommendation: meh by Dimitri

While it's not as complex as other Technic sets, and the play features are admittedly somewhat lacking (the working engine, movable steering and opening doors is all there is), it's still such an enjoyable thing to put together that those foibles are quickly overlooked.
