The 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián now has a much bigger counterpart.
In 2020, Lamborghini and LEGO announced the launch of a LEGO Technic model of the Lamborghini Sián in 1:8 scale. However, both brands have decided to join forces again and up the ante, this time creating a 1:1, life-size recreation of the car by using over 400,000 LEGO pieces of over 154 types of LEGO. What resulted is a stunningly impressive and realistic model that matches the shape and look of the Lamborghini Sián and captures its beautiful design.

The model matches the dimensions of the Sián with absolute perfection, with the chassis covered in hexagonal LEGO pieces that together tessellate and form a shell like the bodywork of the car, and the hexagonal shape of the pieces forms a beautiful reference to one of Lamborghini’s most iconic design motifs. The LEGO designers, however, didn’t stop there. They also recreated the interior of the car, with a steering wheel that has the Lamborghini logo on it, racing seats, and an instrument panel. The model took over 8,660 hours of work to complete and weighs more than 4,850 pounds, and for the first time ever, a LEGO model was given a paint-effect coating to match the official Lamborghini paint. The model is on display at Museo Automobili Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, and just like the real car, it’s quite an impressive sight.
