LEGO Italia and Ducati have joined forces to create a full-size, 1:1 Ducati Panigale V4 R Model built out of LEGO Technic pieces. The model was built by artist Riccardo Zangelmi who spent 400 hours putting it together. He also built the motorcycle and disassembled it eight different times until he came up with the perfect build.

"Taking part in this project of LEGO Italia and Ducati was the most exciting professional challenge I’d ever faced," says Zangelmi. "It pushed me well beyond any limit and I succeeded by crossing the finishing line as part of a team."

This full-size model comes just after LEGO unveiled the Ducati Panigale V4 R LEGO Technic set that's much more consumer friendly. Available on August 1, 2020, this new set is full of features and is incredibly detailed. One of the most notable features is the working 2-speed gearbox, which is actually a first for any LEGO Technic motorcycle. Click the button to shop the kit now.
