Car fans will now have a reason to play with Legos again ( as if we ever stopped ). The Danish toy maker just announced its Speed Champions series for 2015, which will feature cars from Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren.

Still, they feature the official logos and likenesses (if you squint). Seven sets will be available beginning in Spring 2015, including such cars as the Porsche 911 RSR, 911 GT3 R Hybrid, Ferrari F14 T F1 racer, LaFerrari, and McLaren Mercedes MP4-29 F1 car, which will come with its own pit stop playset. Lego hasn't officially released any info or images of the others in the series, but leaked photos reveal a McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Ferrari 458 Italia GT2 are also planned. The figures that come with the cars wear matching racing suits, and the playsets feature flags, tools, trophies, and other items commonly found on race day.

Previously, Lego partnered with Mercedes for a 2048-piece Unimog, and with Mini for a 1077-piece classic Cooper. The cars in the Speed Champions series look decidedly less complicated than those, but then again less build time translates to more play time.
