Let’s be real here, most of us will never actually own a Lamborghini in our lives. We just have to sit back and watch much wealthier people cruise around in these well-crafted beauties on TV and in films, but the newest set from Lego will give car lovers a chance to own a Lamborghini – and it’s more than a toy.
Earlier this week, Lego announced a new 3,696-piece set to build a 1:8 scale of Lamborghini’s $3.6 million super-capacitor supercar, the Sian FKP37. The real vehicle, unveiled online late last year, is a mid-engine hybrid supercar with a behemoth 6.5-liter V12 engine and a 48-volt e-motor. It has a whopping 807 combined horsepower, allowing it to go 0 to 62 mph in an astonishing 2.8 seconds. Lamborghini only made 63 units of the vehicle, selling out before it was even publicly revealed, but the Lego Technic version offers all of that same detail, as though you’re creating a work of art.
Taking much of the idea from the Lego Bugatti Chiron kit released back in 2018, the Sian FKP37 has a fully modeled interior, a bag hidden in the frunk and other fun functional parts – like the doors opening, the rear wing rising and dipping and, even when you click the eight-speed transmission into gear, the plastically aspirated V12 actually spins when you push the car. There’s a lot that goes into this set and, since it’s got 97 more pieces than the Chiron, it costs $50 more, coming in at a ridiculous $380. That actually makes it the most expensive car set that the Danish manufacturer has ever produced – yes, even more than the 1989 Batmobile replica which goes for $249.
And, to avoid scalping with the new set, Lego will limit customers to two sets. The Sian FKP37 model, which is 13cm tall, 60cm long and 25cm wide, will be available for pre-order on June 1. That should keep you, or your children, busy for quite a few months.
