The Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 embodies the design and futuristic elegance of the limited-edition Italian super sports car.

The Lego Group and Automobili Lamborghini have unveiled the eagerly awaited Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. The reveal featured all the suspense and excitement of a super car launch event, but was miniature in scale and powered entirely by Lego Technic elements.

The 1:8 scale Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 embodies the visionary design and futuristic elegance of the limited-edition Italian super sports car. Immersive touches include a replica of the Lamborghini Sián’s V12 engine, a rear spoiler that pops up like the real thing, front and rear suspension, and steering powered by a wheel adorned with the Automobili Lamborghini emblem. First presented at Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019, only 63 of the full-sized Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 models are being produced, making this 3,696-piece replica the ultimate collector’s item for luxury car lovers and Lego fans looking for their next building challenge.

Featuring a vivid lime-green colour and golden rims, the model measures over 5” high, 23” long and 9” wide and will be available directly from Lego stores and here from 1st June 1st, followed by many retailers globally from 1st August 2020.

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 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.”

An exclusive series of 13 videocasts featuring Automobili Lamborghini and Lego experts can also be accessed through QR codes in two ‘coffee-table’ style collectors’ booklets that accompany the model. These videocasts delve deep into the inspiration behind different stages of the design.
