Using 154 different types of LEGO parts, the 2,200kg model embodies the design of the Sian down to the most minute details.

Lamborghini, in collaboration with the LEGO Group, has built a life-size replica of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, using over 400,000 LEGO Technic elements.

Following the launch of the 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian last year, this life-size model replicates the limited edition Italian super sportscar, albeit on a much larger scale.

The body panels are comprised of hexagonal LEGO Technic elements
Using 154 different types of LEGO parts, including 20 moulded specifically for this project, the 2,200kg model embodies the unmistakeable design of the Lamborghini Sian down to the most minute details, mirroring the car's dimensions to the millimetre.

The collaboration between the two companies' designers, engineers and technicians took a team of 15 people 8,660 hours of development work and painstaking construction. The proportion-perfect chassis is identical to the real-life Sian at 4,980mm long, 2,101mm wide and 1,133mm high.

The body panels are comprised of interconnecting hexagonal LEGO Technic elements, paying homage to the shapes that are integral to Lamborghini's design language. LEGO's experts have ensured that the lights, as well as the sleek lightning bolt that flashes along the body reflect how the real Sian's epsilon head lights and hexagonal taillights power up and down.

The cockpit features a brick-built steering wheel and LEGO dashboard controls
Inside the cockpit, the detail continues with a brick-built steering wheel featuring the Lamborghini emblem and Italian flag, LEGO built dashboard controls, and racing seats.

In a first-of-its-kind virtual unveiling from the LEGO Group, the model has been rebuilt in a virtual LEGO workshop to give Lamborghini enthusiasts and LEGO lovers the chance to get up close and personal with the full-scale version.

Viewers can get behind the wheel of the 1:8 scale edition before being 'transformed' along with the model into the full-scale replica.
