You’ve Got To See This Lamborghini Sian
More than 400,000 Lego bricks and 8,660 hours of meticulous hard work went into creating it.
If you’re a Lamborghini or a Lego Technic fan, you must be aware that a couple of years ago, the duo created a 1:8 scale model of the Sian FKP 37 using Lego pieces. That was impressive. But, what they’ve done this time will render their previous efforts lame. In their latest stint, Lamborghini and Lego have jointed developed a full-size version of the same limited-run model – the Sian FKP 37 – using Lego bricks. And it’s on display until October 6, 2022, at Museo Automobili Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese.
No points for guessing; there’s only one example in the world. And before getting into the numbers side of the story, let’s clear the air a bit. Full-size doesn’t mean roughly the same measurements as the actual car. No. It means that the Lego pieces, some of which were modified, have been joined together to achieve the exact dimensions of the fully-functional Sian FKP 37.
Okay, over to the numbers now. 15 design, engineering and construction specialists from the Lego team in Kladno, Czech Republic, worked on the project. More than 400,000 Lego bricks were used in total. They comprise 154 different types, including 20 that were moulded especially for this project. Next, weight. The 819hp Sian FKP 37 tips the scale at 1,595kg (dry). On the other hand, the one made of Lego pieces weighs 2,200kg.
And if you’re wondering how long it took to complete the project, here are the figures. The development process clocked 5,370 hours, whereas the production part took 3,290 hours. Simple math reveals that it took 8,660 hours of meticulous hard work on this life-size, one-of-a-kind Sian FKP 37.
For the finishing touches, the Lego model was given a paint-effect coating using official Lamborghini paint. Also, the lights and the unmissable character lines at the front, side and rear were lit up. And to pay tribute to the design of the real Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, the outer shell of the Lego model used a hexagonal shape. All three traits mentioned bagged the ‘first time ever’ title.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
