LEGO revs up first fruits of Lamborghini collaboration

Toy company stages reveal of new LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 to mirror a supercar launch event.

LEGO has unveiled the first new product under its collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini – staging the reveal to mirror a real-life supercar launch event.

The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is the group’s first 1:8 scale launch. Boasting a lime green colour with golden rims, the model measures over 5″ high, 23″ long and 9″ wide. It includes a replica of the Lamborghini Sián’s V12 engine, a rear spoiler that pops like the real thing, front and rear suspension and a steering wheel complete with the Automobili Lamborghini emblem.

The 3,696-piece model also boasts scissor doors with the interior recreated with a fully function eight-speed sequential gearbox triggered by a movable paddle gearshift.

It will be available globally from August 1.

“This new model truly encapsulates the pursuit of excellence embedded in the DNA of both Automobili Lamborghini and the LEGO Group,” said Niels. B. Christiansen, ceo of the LEGO Group. “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 Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is a true testament that with LEGO Technic, you can build anything your heart desires. I can’t wait to build this authentic replica of this futuristic super sports car for real.”

Stefano Domenicali, ceo and chairman of Automobili Lamborghini, added: “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.”
