The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is the latest in a line of officially backed full-sized supercar homages created by Lego.

Built from 4 lakh individual Lego Technic pieces
“This show-stopping collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini demonstrates once again that with Technic, you can build whatever you can imagine for real,” Lego said.
The 1:1 replica Sián is built from 4,00,000 individual Lego Technic pieces – including some custom moulded for the replica – with identical dimensions to the real-life model, at 4,980 mm long, 2,101mm wide and 1,133mm high. It weighs in at 2,200kg and took a team of 15 people a total of 8,660 hours to complete. It follows the commercially available 1:18-scale Sián model that Lego launched last year.
“Our designers love a challenge, so you can imagine their delight when we tasked them to think slightly larger than normal with this model,” said Lena Dixen, Lego’s vice-president of product and marketing.
“They jumped at the chance of teaming up with our amazing designers and engineers from our model-production workshop at the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic, who build these impressive life-size models, and really pushing the boundaries of what can be done with Lego Technic,” Dixen said.
The model has even been fitted with electronic components to imitate the Sián’s headlights and hexagonal tail-lights, and a brick-built steering wheel can be found in the cockpit with dashboard controls and racing seats. It’s also the first large-scale model to feature Lego’s paintbrush-effect UV colour coating.
In 2018, Lego unveiled a full-scale version of the Bugatti Chiron made from more than 1,000,000 pieces, and followed it up in 2019 with a 1,700kg version of the McLaren Senna.
Lamborghini recently launched the Huracan Evo RWD Spyder in India, expanding their entry-level supercar’s line-up to four variants. The Huracan aside, Lamborghini also sells its flagship Aventador and the Urus SUV in the country.
