On first glance you might be wondering if it’s a Lego or a Lamborghini. It’s actually Lego’s Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 – and it’s full size and made of 400,000 pieces.
That’s a lot of Lego pieces. So many that it took a whopping 8,600 hours of labor to create the one-of-a-kind Lamborghini Sian FKP 37.
It’s in fact a promotional Lego hypercar – a full-scale version of the Sián FKP 37.
Lego assembled just 154 different shaped pieces to make the Sián. That includes 20 components that are unique to the model.
On top of the pieces, the model uses a special UV coating paint to match the look of the commercially available Sián set Lego released last year that retails for $379.
It’s every 9-year-old’s dream!
A crew of 15 people toiled for 8660 hours to create and build the very special Lamborghini model. They also created an interactive digital version available only in a virtual Lego workshop.
Automobile lovers estimated that it would cost about $40,000 to re-create the life-size Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 that the Lego Group built as a special model for Automobili Lamborghini. It weighs about 4,850 pounds and the plastic Sián is nearly identical to the real hypercar. Both cars are 196 inches long, 83 inches wide, and 45 inches tall, according to Lamborghini.
This is the first large-scale Lego model that employed a “paintbrush-effect UV color coating,” which was actually applied in Lamborghini’s very own paint shop.
You can’t get your hands on one of the big ones but you can still get your hands on that
1:8-scale Sián FKP 37 Lego Technic building kit for $379. (Expensive for a Lego but not bad for a Lambo – the actual Sián retails for $3 million).
So what are those 20 unique pieces that make this Lego Lamborghini hypercar impossible to recreate?
They include Technic hexagons that were used to pay “homage to the six-sided shape that is integral to Lamborghini’s design language,” Lamborghini said in a statement.
Sián means “flash” or “lightning” in the Bolognese dialect, according to the Italian automaker, and the Lego model mirrors the actual car matching the startup lighting signature using Technic pieces.
“Our designers love a challenge, so they were enthusiastic to literally think on a larger scale with this model,” said Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at LEGO Group.
Maybe you’d prefer the real thing?
The real Sián FKP 37 is Lamborghini’s first hybrid one-off.
It’s an incredible combination of V12 power, luxury, beauty, and technical innovation.
Inspired by the Countach, the Lamborghini Sián was designed to embody sharp gorgeous lines and aerodynamic perfection. The body is made with 100 percent carbon fiber and Terzo Millennio-inspired headlights represent the future of Lamborghini lights.
You’ll love sinking into the opulent and comfortable Italian craftsmanship that meshes seamlessly with technology inside the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
That’s because the Sián was created to give you the best driving experience on earth. You will also find signature elements like the Y-shaped stylistic features, the hexagon, and perfection in every detail of the interior Italian craftsmanship.

The Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 enters the hybrid arena blowing away every hybrid accomplishment made before it.
Sián’s V12 delivers 808 horsepower, the highest ever reached by a Lamborghini engine accompanied by a 48V electric motor coming directly out of the gearbox. This allows for ground-breaking acceleration and gear shifting. You can get from zero to 60 in just 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 mph.
Clearly, not your neighbor’s hybrid.
