Lego bricks can really be used to build anything, even a Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
Lamborghini’s first hybrid model received its first “Lego” version more than a year ago when a 1:8 scale model was released with almost 4,000 pieces and a lifelike rear spoiler. It is a product from the Lego Technic Ultimate Series that includes both the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Bugatti Chiron, and like these two cars, Sián is now also receiving a 1:1 Lego replica.
As can be imagined, the total number of Lego pieces has multiplied to create a life-sized Sián. Specifically, the assembly team used more than 400,000 Lego pieces, and 20 of them were specially built for this Italian supercar. With 100 times more pieces than a 1:8 scale model, it’s not surprising that this 1:1 model weighs a lot. With a weight of up to 2,200 kg, it is even heavier than the real car.
This impressive project represents the end result of 5,370 hours of development and 3,290 hours of production to create a physical-sized Lego model exactly like the real Sián. The “brick car” is exactly 4,980 mm long, 2,101 mm wide and 1,133 mm high, complete with working headlights and taillights made entirely from Lego Technic elements.
A team of 15 design, engineering and construction professionals from the Czech Republic was responsible for the 1:1 replica Lego Sián. A pleasant surprise is that hundreds of thousands of puzzle pieces have been painted using paint brush effect overlay by none other than official Lamborghini car artist. That was the first thing that happened with Lego models, as well as the use of hexagons to form the outer shell. In addition, this is also the first life-size replica with a light strip.
Unfortunately, this Lego Sián 1:1 model is not for sale, but for display purposes only. However, you can still find a 1:8 scale model for $380.
