You heard that Lamborghini is coming to LEGO Technic. Well, it is finally here and it the form of the LEGO 42115 Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. Lamborghini’s first hybrid super sports car is an official LEGO Technic set now. What a time to be alive for LEGO/automobile enthusiasts, isn’t it?
Featuring Lamborghini Sián’s striking vivid lime green colorway and contrasting golden wheels, this 1:8 scale LEGO Technic replica of the stunning hybrid super car packs 3,696 pieces and measures over 13 cm (5 inches) tall, 60-freaking-cm (23 inches) long and 25 cm (9 inches) wide. It was a sight to behold even in images. And it is, of course, powered entirely by LEGO Technic elements.
Key features include a detailed and authentic cockpit, an accurate depiction of Sián’s V12 power plant – complete with movable pistons and Lamborghini engine cover, opening scissor doors, a working 8-speed sequential gearbox, functional rear wing, functional front and rear suspension and steering powered from within the cockpit.
Naturally, I find myself wanting one, but somehow, even at a fraction of the real deal’s price, I will probably not be able to oblige my wants. How much, you ask? It’s a healthy US$379.99. Sadly that is pricey by my standards in every way.
The LEGO 42115 Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 will be available from LEGO Stores and LEGO.com starting June 1st. As for global availability, it will start August 1st. Meanwhile, here’s a reveal video of the set:
