Until October 6, a full-scale Lamborghini Sián made of 400,000 Lego pieces of 154 different models will be on display at the Museo Automobili Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese, in the province of Bologna, Italy. 20 of them were created specifically for this project.
The process of developing and building the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, described in Information Market, it took 8660 hours – 5370 hours of development and 3290 hours of production – and relied on the work of 15 design, engineering and construction experts at Lego in the Czech Republic.
In full scale, the dimensions of this model are the same as the original: length 4980 mm, width 2101 mm and height 1133 mm, weight 2,200 kg.
Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at The Lego Group, said: “Our designers love a challenge, so you can imagine how excited they were when we asked them to work on this model and see things in a slightly different way than usual. Everyone was excited. and the opportunity to work in our production workshop at the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic, where these impressive full-scale models are built, and this time they pushed the boundaries of what can be done with LEGO Technic.
In this second joint project by the designers, engineers and master craftsmen of the two companies, the design pays homage to the six-sided shape that plays an important role in Lamborghini’s approach, evoking the hexagonal taillights and the shape of the car’s exhaust. Italian sports.
The front and rear lights are functional, as they were built entirely from Lego Technic parts, and for the first time a Lego model received a paint effect coating, using an official Lamborghini version. It was also the first time we saw hexagonal shaped pieces in a Lego construction.
Accurate details can be seen inside the car, including a LEGO brick steering wheel decorated with the famous Lamborghini logo and Italian flag, instrument panel and racing seats.
