With the help of using over 400,000 LEGO® Technic™ elements, Automobili Lamborghini in collaboration with the LEGO Group has built a life-size replica of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. Following the launch of the 1:8 scale LEGO Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 last year, this life-size model replicates the limited-edition Italian super sportscar on a much grander scale.
Using 154 different types of LEGO elements, including 20 moulded specifically for this project, the 2,200 kg LEGO Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 mirrors the car’s dimensions to the millimeter.
Lamborghini is a dream for people around the world, and LEGO products provide creative inspiration for millions. We’re delighted to have collaborated on this unique edition of the Lamborghini Sián, that will catch the imagination of Lamborghini and LEGO fans alike. – Stephan Winkelmann President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini
A team of 15 people needed 8,660 hours to develop the construction. The proportion-perfect chassis is identical to the real-life Sián at 4,980 mm long, 2,101 mm wide and 1,133 mm high. The body panels are comprised of an intricate fabric of bespoke interconnecting hexagonal LEGO Technic elements. The LEGO Sián’s lights are built entirely from Technic elements, and the sleek lightning bolt that flashes along the body, reflect how the real Sián’s epsilon headlights and hexagonal taillights power up and down.
Inside, there is a brick-built steering wheel that features the Lamborghini emblem and Italian flag, LEGO built dashboard controls and racing seats.
This is the first large-scale model from the LEGO Group to have a paintbrush-effect UV color coating.
Our designers love a challenge, so you can imagine their delight when we tasked them to think slightly larger than normal with this model. They jumped at the chance of teaming up with our amazing designers and engineers who build these impressive life-sized models at our Kladno factory’s model production workshop in the Czech Republic, and really pushing the boundaries of what can be done with LEGO Technic. The creativity that the system allows meant it was possible to really do justice to the exceptional design of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. – Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at the LEGO Group
Specifically for a first-of-its-kind virtual unveiling from the LEGO Group, the model has been rebuilt in a virtual LEGO workshop. Viewers can get behind the wheel of the 1:8 scale edition before being ‘transformed’ along with the model into the full-scale replica.
