Automobili Lamborghini in collaboration with LEGO has built a life-size replica of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, using over 400,000 LEGO pieces!

Following 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 that was launched 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 life-size replica weights a whopping 2,200 kg. The model features the unmistakable design of the Lamborghini Sian down to the finest details – perfectly reflecting every millimetre of the car.

The Sián is Lamborghini’s first hybrid supercar with over 800 hp. Read about it here!

The life-size model took a team of 15 people and 8,660 hours (or roughly a year) to develop and construct. Of the 8,660 hours, 5,370 hours were development time, with another 3,290 hours needed to build the replica.

Not only the details but the dimensions of the replica is also identical to the real Sian super car. It’s 4,980 mm long, 2,101 mm wide and 1,133 mm high.

The body panels are assembled with pieces of custom interconnecting hexagonal LEGO pieces, paying tribute to the six-sided shape that is integral to Lamborghini’s design language. The functioning head and tail lights are also built entirely from LEGO Technic pieces.

Life-size replicas are nothing new, but what’s noteworthy is the first large-scale model from the LEGO Group to have a paintbrush-effect UV colour coating. The colour, which is a perfect match to the 1:8 scale LEGO Technic model, was painted on by Automobili Lamborghini’s paint shop.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
