I like beautiful cars and Ferrari sure knows how to make some, so naturally I had to get this set upon release. This set took me a while to build because I had a lot of trouble pushing in the connector pieces which seemed to have ends that flared out too much, making it difficult. I'm not sure if this is the norm since this is my first Technic and I don't have experience with other Lego sets. If this is even possible, it would be nice if Lego printed the sponsorships on the plastic instead of giving us 57 stickers because my OCD kicked in and I was going crazy trying to place the stickers on as evenly as possible. I even brought out some forceps! The gap between the wheel and wheel arch in the rear is quite large for what's supposed to be a race car which honestly spoils the look of the completed product. Pleased with the product overall.
This set is CLEARLY intended for people looking for a decoration. It fills that role well, hence the score of 8. If you want a large, impressive looking car to have on a desk or shelf, this is a great model. This is the car equivalent of the Ideas Piano or the Lunar Lander. They've got a bit of functionality to show to people, but mostly, they sit there and look cool. There's nothing wrong with that, but it makes me question the Technic branding on this set. Honestly, Lego had it right with the older sets being Racers branded.
The designer has captured the look of the original vehicle pretty well and has ably demonstrated what's possible with just a handful of different shaped Technic panels.
If you're expecting (or looking for) some serious functionality from your Technic sets, this is not the model for you. But that's absolutely fine, because there are other sets that can cater to you, and 42125 (along with its predecessors) has carved out its own audience. Not all Technic models can be – or even need to be, or indeed should be – all things to all people. Fans who just want to build in the part palette of panels, pins, beams and axles without worrying about complex engineering systems will be well served by 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF CORSE #51, as will car enthusiasts just dipping their toes into the LEGO Group's more involved building system.
The 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE is a worthy addition to the series of LEGO Technic supercars. It is an entertaining build and the finished model looks really appealing.
The upcoming wave of LEGO Technic sets is about to bring several very exciting sets. Not all of them are perfect, but they are all about fresh designs. LEGO Technic 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE “AF Corse #51" continues the lovely trend of medium-sized supercars; it is huge and detailed enough to be a collectible, but still not as expensive as the premium LEGO Technic supercar sets. The price tag of $170 in the US may ruin the fun, so I won't say this is a “day one" purchase.
