Continuing with their partnership, Automobili Lamborghini and the LEGO Group have now come out with the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP 37. In 1:8 scale, the powerful hybrid Sian FKP 37 comes in 3,696 pieces to be assembled into a car that is over 13 cm high, 260 cm long and 25 cm wide. The vivid lime-green colour and elegant golden rims of the LEGO Technic replica are available as colour and trim on the real Sian.
Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2019, the Sian’s futuristic features are authentically recreated in the model, including a replica of the V12 engine. There’s also a moveable rear spoiler, front and rear suspension; and steering powered by a wheel complete with the Automobili Lamborghini badge.
The model also has scissor doors which open to reveal the intricately recreated cockpit. There’s even a fully-functioning 8-speed sequential gearbox controlled by a movable paddle gearshift. Owners can open the front bonnet of their LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian to find a Lamborghini overnight bag, together with a unique serial number that unlocks special content.
They can also scan a QR code in the building instructions to access an exclusive series of videocasts by Automobili Lamborghini and LEGO experts, exploring the inspiration behind the design of the original car and the LEGO Technic model. The LEGO Technic model comes in a unique box inspired by the iconic lines, signature headlight silhouette and eye-catching colour of the Sian.
“The LEGO brick is an icon in the same way as a Lamborghini super sportscar,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman & CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “They both embody the pursuit of design perfection through constant research and development, create different emotions with every interaction, and are valued by generations.”
“The LEGO bricks provide builders of all ages with endless possibilities for creation. This outstanding replica of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 from the LEGO Group presents a brilliant new building experience for both super sportscar fans and LEGO enthusiasts and Lamborghini is privileged to share this opportunity with the LEGO Group,” he added.
Commenting on the visionary design, Niels. B. Christiansen, LEGO Group CEO, said: “This new model truly encapsulates the pursuit of excellence embedded in the DNA of both Automobili Lamborghini and the LEGO Group. Both the 1:8 model and the reveal itself are feats of engineering innovation, pulled off by incredibly talented teams from across our two businesses. The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 is a true testament that with LEGO Technic, you can build anything your heart desires. I can’t wait to build this authentic replica of this futuristic super sportscar for real.”
LEGO stores and LEGO.COM will be offering the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 from next month, with many retailers globally having them on shelves from August 2020.
