Editor’s note: We run a column in quattro Magazine called Choice Gear where we feature cool things we think Audi enthusiasts will want to have. This is one of them.
The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 was revealed in Frankfurt in September last year and LEGO worked closely with Lamborghini to produce this 1:8 scale LEGO Technic model. This kit contains 3,696 pieces and is a challenge for the LEGO enthusiast.
The lime green Sián is 5″ high, 23″ long, and 9″ wide…it’s massive. Just look at it in that guy’s hands. It features scissor doors and a fully functioning 8-speed sequential gear box with movable flappy paddles. The front hood opens to reveal a Lamborghini overnight bag for when your Barbie and Ken want to take an overnight trip to their special B&B. Even the box it comes in is a work of art.
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.”
“The LEGO brick is an icon in the same way as a Lamborghini super sports car,” said Stefano Domenicali, CEO and Chairman of Automobili Lamborghini. “They both embody the pursuit of design perfection through constant research and development, create different emotions with every interaction, and are valued by generations. Each Lamborghini super sports car can be unique thanks to our Ad Personam personalization program and the specific driving style of each owner, just as LEGO bricks provide builders of all ages with endless possibilities for creation. This outstanding replica of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 from the LEGO Group presents a brilliant new building experience for both super sports car fans and LEGO enthusiasts and Lamborghini is privileged to share in this opportunity with the LEGO Group.”
The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 will be available directly from LEGO stores and www.lego.com/Technic-Lamborghini-Sian on June 1st then in many retailers on August 1, 2020. June 1 is only a couple of days away so if you are still in lock down, order this…the time will go by so much faster.
