Owning a Lamborghini can be really expensive. If you’re okay with not owning the real thing (for now), you can splurge on the special-edition Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
Being able to confidently say, “I own a Lamborghini.” is a big flex. But of course, like most supercars, it’ll cost you a small fortune. At US$3.6 million, it’s a pretty steep price. But of course, the Sián in real-time is a hybrid supercar with only 63 models available around the world. Now, you can opt for the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 at only RM1,599.
We managed to get our hands on one thanks to Lego and build a Lamborghini from scratch. The 1:8 scale model comes with almost 4,000 pieces and it allows you to build the Sián FKP 37 from the ground up.
While most Lego box designs cater to children, the Lego Technic offers something different. It goes for a more visually appealing look, especially for its supercars. The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron was exceptional, but the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 definitely improves on its box design and structure.
On the front, you’ll notice that it’s a top view of the car’s rear. The bright green hue takes after the original Sián alongside the signature rear headlights for good measure. Upon opening the box, you’re greeted with six compartments that also shapes itself to be the engine cover for the car. It’s neat touches like this that makes the purchase all the more worthwhile.
In total, there are six highly complex, yet painstakingly fun stages to complete the set. Of course, each step takes over a hundred pages to complete, mind you. Joining you on the ride is a double booklet guide, telling the journey of the Lamborghini Sián along with the build and reference process. It features a step-by-step look at how you should be building the car, ensuring that you do not get lost along the way.
Make no mistake though, it is a complicated process from the get-go with little to no room for error. While the entire process is somewhat straightforward, it will definitely take you some time to finish; even more so if this is your first attempt at building in over 20 years.
The first three boxes will take you through the rear and front suspension as well as the gearbox and the engine. The other three boxes are the top half of the car, which includes the interior as well as the panelling. However, the hardest part of the journey is also at the beginning due to a large number of small parts that make up the very foundation of the build. The entire build and design of the car are intricate and clever with a keen eye for detail.
Lego Technic spares no expense at ensuring you’re covering every corner of the car. This makes it exciting yet scary as a single misstep will mean undoing everything beyond that point. There is also a hidden challenge thrown in by building both the eight-speed working gearbox as well as the V12 engine block with moving pistons. These delicate units were some of the most challenging builds an inexperienced builder can ask for, and more.
However, the satisfaction you’ll be feeling upon completion, even if its the first book, will be worth it.
The Final Product
After countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears (we may or may not be joking), finishing the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 felt surreal. The nature of its growing complexity and ultra-realistic designs has allowed the brand to flourish and finding new audiences every day, especially with collaborations like this. As it stands, the set measures at over 5-inches tall, 23-inches long, and 9-inches wide of pure, unadulterated power and passion rolled into one.
