LEGO and Lamborghini Reveal 3,700-piece, $380 Sian Kit

If you’re after one of the 63 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 models, but can neither afford the price nor the wait for Sant’Agata to actually start building them, there’s a piece of good news for you from Denmark.

Venerable building block manufacturer LEGO has teamed up with Lamborghini to create a 1:8 scale version of the hybrid hypercar, which you’ll be able to pick up next month. The car is as close to a recreation of the Sian as possible with LEGO Technic as a medium.

Each of the LEGO Lambos comes in at almost 23 inches (60cm) in length and nine inches wide (25cm). You’ll need at least a five-inch (13cm) high shelf space to store it too. As you’d expect from models of this type, the Sian comes with a luxury presentation box, and rather than the usual LEGO build manual there’s a coffee-table book to guide you through the 3,696-piece assembly.

Along with the electrified part of the power train, the Sian FKP 37 (named for former VW Group chairman Ferdinand Piech and his birth year) comes with a traditional Lamborghini V12. The LEGO kit replicates the combustion engine, with 12 moving pistons. This drives the eight-speed gearbox, which is also faithfully transferred into LEGO. A viewing window underneath the car allows you to see this in action, as you change gear with the paddle shifters.

Other moving parts include the steering, pushrod-actuated suspension, and scissor doors. There’s even an active rear wing, which LEGO says was “a challenge” to recreate.

Each of the model kits also comes with a unique serial number, which gives access to exclusive online content. This sits under the frunk’s hood, along with a LEGO Lamborghini overnight bag.

If you think this doesn’t sound cheap, you’d be right. The LEGO Lamborghini Sian comes in at $380 (£350), though to be fair that is a mere 0.01% of the cost of the real thing. It’s also available slightly sooner, with first orders from June 1.
