Legos have been used to build a lot of cool things, like this full-scale X-wing or the largest scale model ever built from Legos, this London Bridge scale replica. The same treatment has been applied to cars, and the latest one is this life-sized Lamborghini Sian FKP 37!

The Slowest Lamborghini Ever Made

We’ve seen a ton of cool life-sized Lego builds, like the Chevy Silverado 1500 LT Trail Boss or the meticulously detailed McLaren Senna with more than 500,000 bricks and 5,000 hours of build time. There’s also the McLaren 720S that was displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum, but the coolest one was probably the 5.3-horsepower Bugatti Chiron that was actually functional and capable of driving (at very low speeds, of course). Today, the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 takes it turn in the full-scale Lego light, and it’s a true masterpiece of art.

Now, if you thought the 4,000-piece Lamborghini Sian Lego Technic Kit was cool, then this 1:1 scale build is going to blow your mind. It took more than 400,000 individual bricks to build, of which only 20 had to be custom made. Ironically enough, this Lego model weighs some 4,850 pounds, making it quite a bit heavier that the real car. Lamborghini never revealed an official curb weight, but said that it has a power-to-weight ratio of less than 1.98 kg per CV or 4.365 pounds per 1.01 horsepower. With a combined output of 808 horsepower, we can figure that the real Sian weighs around 3,526.95 pounds or about 1,323 pounds less than this Sian Lego build. Interesting, right?

Well, it gets even more interesting, because the total project consumers a total of 8,660 hours, 5,270 hours of which went into development, while 3,290 hours went into the act of building. In the end, it measures out at 196 inches long, 83 inches wide, and 45 inches tall, and it even has functional headlights and taillights made entirely from Lego Technic elements. It might not be quite as cool as the functional Bugatti Chiron, but it’s still pretty damn cool. Unfortunately, you can’t bug the full-scale model to enjoy, but for around $380 you can get your own 1:8 scale Lamborghini Sian Lego Technic kit.
