Lego has added another stunning kit to its Technic line – the same one which introduced the Bugatti Chiron in 2018 and has been adding highly detailed technical scale models since the 1970s. The latest offering comes in the form of a 1:8 scale version of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 – the Italian automaker’s first production hybrid-powered hypercar that debuted at last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show. It is only the third model ever to join the Technic line’s lauded Ultimate Series. “This new model truly encapsulates the pursuit of excellence embedded in the DNA of both Automobili Lamborghini and the LEGO Group,” the company’s CEO Niels B. Christiansen said. “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 Sián 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 sports car for real.”
Capturing even the minutest detail, the Lego Technic Sián FKP 37 kit is made up of 3,696 pieces that have to be put together the scale model that measures 23 inches (60cm) long, 5 inches (13cm) high and 9 inches (25cm) wide when fully assembled. Just to give you an idea of how incredible the Sián FKP 37 Lego kit is, the scale model features scissor doors that open, a rear wing that rises and dips, a fully modeled interior, a bag hidden in the frunk, and a functioning V12 engine that is coupled to an eight-speed transmission. Lego will start accepting orders from June 1 and the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sian will be available from select Lego stores and the company’s web store. If you want to add one to your scale model collection, the kit is priced at $379.99. The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is based on the Aventador and is powered by a supercapacitor hybrid system that adds an additional 34hp to the 774hp produced from the naturally aspirated V12. Only 63 Sian FKP 37s will be built with an asking price of $3.7 million. However, all of them were sold even before the hypercar made its public debut.
