Remember the amazing life-size replica of a Bugatti Chiron made almost entirely out of Lego pieces that debuted three years back? Well, Lego has done it again, and this time it’s a Lambo! Behold the stunning full-size replica of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37. A little over a year ago, the famed Danish toy brand introduced a 1:8 Lego Technic Ultimate Series set of Lambo’s very first production hybrid hypercar. While it features nearly 4000 pieces and a working rear spoiler, the life-size replica has been constructed out of more than 400,000 pieces, out of which 20 had to be custom made specifically for the build. Lego says 154 different elements were used for this jaw-dropping creation.
A team of 15 members from Lamborghini and Lego closely worked together on this project. It took 5,370 hours of development and 3,290 hours of production to build the replica with the exact dimensions of the hypercar. The final product weighs in at a whopping 4,850 pounds, about 1,000 pounds heavier than the real car. If you look closely, the bodywork of the model is made of interconnecting hexagonal elements. They are made out of bespoke fabric material. The 1:1 Lego replica has been finished using a paintbrush-effect UV color coating done by the specialists from Lamborghini. It also gets the Sian’s stunning Y-shaped headlights and a proper interior with an intricate dash made of tiny Lego bricks.
“Our designers love a challenge, so you can imagine their delight when we tasked them to think slightly larger than normal with this model. They jumped at the chance of teaming up with our amazing designers and engineers who build these impressive life-sized models at our Kladno factory’s model production workshop in the Czech Republic, and really pushing the boundaries of what can be done with LEGO Technic,” said Lego Group senior VP of product and marketing, Lena Dixen.
