Lego has made a life-size replica of the Lamborghini Sián. A hypercar that looks really realistic thanks to 400,000 plastic building blocks.
The toy manufacturer Lego shows another supercar that has been recreated in full size with Lego Technic parts. Two cars preceded this Lamborghini Sián: the Bugatti Chiron (2018) and the McLaren Senna (2019). Toys for big kids… with lots of patience and lots of money!
To build this Lamborghini Sián with the identical dimensions of the real model – 4980 mm long, 2101 mm wide and 1133 mm high – Lego used 400,000 pieces from its Lego Technic range, for a total weight of 2.4 tons. A beautiful toy that puts the spotlight on the Lamborghini and the 1/18 construction set that Lego brought to the market in 2020. However, the complexity is nowhere near the level of the Bugatti Chiron, which required no less than 1 million pieces and was much heavier than the McLaren Senna, which weighed a total of 1,700 kilos.
With the series of life-size replicas, Lego wants to show “that you can actually build anything you can imagine,” according to the manufacturer. The sky’s the limit, so. When will there be a real design competition for Lego cars?
Attention to detail
To further enhance the realism of its creation, Lego equipped the Lamborghini Sián replica with electronic components to mimic the Sián’s hexagonal headlights and taillights. The cockpit is equally realistic with a stone steering wheel next to the controls on the dashboard and racing seats. Most importantly, this is the first large-scale model with Lego’s UV coating to preserve the color for life.
