We featured a Lego-like 2CV model last year that we thought was complex to build, but it pales in comparison to this full-size Lamborghini SÍAN FKP 37 made from more than 400,000 Lego® Technic™pieces.
Making its North American debut, at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto in February 2023, it is an amazing effort by designer Lubor Zelinka and his team of 15 people who put in over 8,660 hours of development and detailed construction.
The model is proportion-perfect down to the millimetre, with more than 154 different types of LEGO elements used to ensure it embodies the futuristic elegance and unmistakeable silhouette of the Lamborghini Sián, down to the most minute details:
- The frame is covered with an intricate fabric of bespoke hexagonal LEGO Technic elements that interconnect to form an energy-charged shell.
- The word Sían means “flash” or “lightning” in the Bolognese dialect so to mark this, the electrical experts from the LEGO Group ensured that the lights and sleek lightning bolt that flashes along the body reflect how the real model’s epsilon headlights and hexagonal taillights power up and down.
- Inside the cockpit the detail continues, with a brick-built steering wheel emblazoned with the famous Lamborghini emblem and Italian flag, LEGO-built dashboard controls and sports seats.
In addition to the life-sized replica of the Lamborghini, there is a 1:8 scale version of a LEGO Technic model of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 that is 3,696 pieces measuring a little more than 5” (13cm) high, 23” (60cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide.
If you are inspired by the full-size Lambo model, might we suggest you warm-up by building this baby version?
