  • A promotional life-size version of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is made with 400,000 Lego elements. Lego used just 154 different pieces to make the Sián, including 20 unique components.
  • The model uses a special UV coating paint to match the look of the commercially available Sián set Lego released last year.
  • It took 15 people working 8660 hours to create and build the model, as well as an interactive digital version available in a virtual Lego workshop.

    In the Lego world, buying a model kit that roughly cost 10 cents per piece is often considered a good deal. Using that as a guide, we can calculate that it would cost $40,000 to re-create the life-size Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 that the Lego Group built as a special model for Automobili Lamborghini.

    The brand collaboration used more than 400,000 Lego pieces to make a 4850-pound plastic Sián that is nearly identical to the real thing. Lamborghini said the Lego version "perfectly mirror[s] the car's dimensions to the millimeter." Both vehicles are 196 inches long, 83 inches wide, and 45 inches tall.

    Before you go scraping together $40,000 to build your own massive Lego Sián, know that this will be difficult for two reasons. First, of the 154 different elements Lego used in this build, 20 of them were molded specifically to make a more realistic Sián. Second, this is Lego's first large-scale model that uses a "paintbrush-effect UV color coating," which was applied in Lamborghini's paint shop. Also, a 1:8-scale Sián FKP 37 Lego Technic building kit was released last year, and that one costs $380, less than the $3 million price for an actual Sián.

    Some of the unique pieces in the large model are Technic hexagons that were used to "[pay] homage to the six-sided shape that is integral to Lamborghini's design language," Lamborghini said. The Lego model also mimics the real car by matching the startup lighting signature with Technic pieces. Sián means "flash" or "lightning" in the Bolognese dialect, Lamborghini said.

    Lamborghini said it took 15 people working 8660 hours to develop and build the full-size Sián. If you'd like to get a closer, digital look—including the brick-built steering wheel, dashboard, and racing seats—Lego also made a digital version for a virtual Lego workshop where anyone can "sit" in the driver's seat while listening to the model's designers talk about the creation process.

    In 2019, Lego built a full-size Bugatti Chiron out of over a million Technic pieces. That one took over 13,400 hours to put together, but perhaps the most amazing detail is that it had enough Lego gears (4032) and motors (2304) to actually move at up to 12 miles an hour.
