Lego used up 400,000 bricks to create a full 1:1 scale Lego Technic tribute of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. It will be displayed until the 6th of October at the Museo Automobili Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

The partnership between the two brands stretches back many years and underlines their shared values of being “brave, authentic and unexpected”.

This comes two years after the launch of the 1:8 scale Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 in 2020, and this full-size model of the limited-edition Italian supercar used over 154 different types of Lego pieces to create a faithful and unmistakable outline of the Lamborghini Sián, right down to the very smallest details.

“Our designers love challenges, so you can imagine how delighted they were when we asked them to work on this model and look at things in a slightly bigger way than usual. They leaped at the chance to work with the incredible designers and engineers from our production workshop at the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic, who build these stunning full-scale models, and really pushed back the boundaries of what can be done with Lego Technic. Thanks to the scope for creativity provided by the system, they’ve truly done justice to the exceptional design of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 Lego Technic.”

This joint project is a pool of talent and dedication from the designers, engineers and technicians of both companies. The chassis is covered with made-to-measure interconnected hexagonal Lego Technic pieces that paid tribute to the iconic hexagonal tail lights and the shape of the exhaust of the Italian sports car.

“After a wait of more than a year, the LEGO Technic model of the Lamborghini Sián is going on show at Museo Automobili Lamborghini. It’s the natural place to display the Lamborghini super sports cars that have always given dreams and feelings concrete forms thanks to innovation and technology. This 1:1 scale model of the Sián shows that Lamborghini – just like Lego Group – sees challenges as its lifeblood, technology as a means of creation, and design as a linchpin that can and must take people’s breath away,” said Federico Foschini, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at Automobili Lamborghini.

According to Lamborghini, the word Sián means “lightning” or “thunderbolt” in Bolognese dialect.

Lego revealed that the it made the lights and the stylish thunderbolt that flash down the bodywork shine like the Y-shaped lights on the real vehicle, while also producing hexagonal tail lights that can really turn on and off.  This is the first large-scale model by the Lego to have paint-effect UV color coating, which will help to make the model longer lasting.

Weighing 2,200 kilos, it took a team of 15 specialists 8,660 hours to develop and construct the Lambo project in Kladno, the Czech Republic. Even the front and rear lights work and they are made entirely from Lego Technic pieces.
