Originally revealed at Frankfurt Auto Show 2019, the Lamborghini Sián’s futuristic features are authentically recreated in the LEGO® TechnicTM model, including a replica of the V12 engine; a moveable rear spoiler; front and rear suspension; and steering powered by a wheel complete with the Automobili Lamborghini badge. The model boasts scissor doors, which open to reveal the intricately recreated cockpit, with a fully-functioning eight-speed sequential gearbox controlled by a movable paddle gearshift. The vivid lime-green colour and elegant golden rims of the LEGO® TechnicTM replica are available as colour and trim on the real Sián, with the model measuring over 5” (13 cm) high, 23” (60 cm) long and 9” (25 cm) wide.

“The LEGO® brick is an icon in the same way as a Lamborghini super sports car. 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 this opportunity with the LEGO® Group,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.

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® TechnicTM Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is a true testament that with LEGO® TechnicTM, you can build anything your heart desires. I can’t wait to build this authentic replica of this futuristic super sports car for real.”
