today until October 6, 2022, a unique Lamborghini Sián made from more than
400,000 Lego Technic pieces will be on display at Museo Automobili Lamborghini
in Sant’Agata Bolognese. An established partnership has been in place between
the two brands for several years and this initiative underlines their shared
values: “brave, authentic and unexpected”.
the launch of the 1:8 scale Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 in 2020, this
life-size model recreates the visionary design of the limited-edition Italian
sports car on a much bigger scale. More than 154 different types of Lego pieces
were used to ensure that the model embodies the futuristic sophistication and
reproduces the unmistakable outline of the Lamborghini Sián, right down to the
very smallest details.
Dixen, Senior Vice President of Products and Marketing at the Lego Group,
stated: “Our designers love challenges, so you can imagine how delighted they
were when we asked them to work on this model and look at things in a slightly
bigger way than usual. They leaped at the chance to work with the incredible
designers and engineers from our production workshop at the Kladno factory in
the Czech Republic, who build these stunning full-scale models, and really
pushed back the boundaries of what can be done with Lego Technic. Thanks to the
scope for creativity provided by the system, they’ve truly done justice to the
exceptional design of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 Lego Technic.”
this second joint project by the talented designers, engineers and technicians
from the two companies, the model has exactly the same dimensions as the
Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, right down to the last millimeter: the perfectly
proportioned chassis is covered with made-to-measure hexagonal Lego Technic
pieces that are interconnected and form a shell that is bursting with energy.
The design pays tribute to the six-sided shape that plays a key role in
Lamborghini’s approach, calling to mind the iconic hexagonal tail lights and
the shape of the exhaust of the Italian sports car.
a wait of more than a year, the Lego Technic model of the Lamborghini Sián is
going on show at Museo Automobili Lamborghini. It’s the natural place to
display the Lamborghini super sports cars that have always given dreams and
feelings concrete forms thanks to innovation and technology. This 1:1 scale
model of the Sián shows that Lamborghini – just like LEGO Group – sees
challenges as its lifeblood, technology as a means of creation, and design as a
linchpin that can and must take people’s breath away,” stated Federico
Foschini, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer at Automobili Lamborghini.
the outside, the design of the Lamborghini Sián has been recreated with the
utmost attention to detail. The word Sián means “lightning” or “thunderbolt” in
Bolognese dialect. The experts from the Lego Group underlined this by making
the lights and the stylish thunderbolt that flashes down the bodywork shine
like the Y-shaped lights on the real vehicle, while also producing hexagonal
tail lights that can really turn on and off.
precise detailing can be seen inside the vehicle, including a LEGO brick
steering wheel decorated with the famous Lamborghini badge and the Italian
flag, an instrument panel and racing seats.
is the first large-scale model by the Lego Group to have paint-effect UV color
coating, which will help to make the model longer lasting. The colour perfectly
matches the hue of the 1:8 scale Lego Technic model and it was applied by the
Lamborghini paint shop to ensure that the sports car had a fitting finish.
