One of the wildest models that Lamborghini launched in recent years is the 800+ horsepower Sian. Originally revealed at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Sian is unlike other Lambos that came before. Why so? That’s because the Sian is the Italian supercar builder’s first-ever hybrid model to enter production.
Yes, despite its outrageous design, the Sian is a limited-run production model. Unfortunately, if you’re interested in buying one, all 63 units have already been spoken for at a price of USD 3.6 million (Php 182 million) per.
Luckily, there’s another way for you to get your hands on the Lamborghini Sian. Better yet, you don’t even have to pay the Php 182 million price tag. There are a few catches though. The first is that it will come in 1/8 scale and the other is that you will have to assemble it yourself.
It's the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sian.
Like other Technic vehicle models, the Sian has been meticulously recreated in Lego plastic. Since it is a Technic kit, it is highly detailed with a "working" representation of the V12 engine. It also has a moveable rear spoiler and complete front and rear suspension. Open up the Lamborghini scissor doors and the cabin features a steering system complete with a wheel with the Automobili Lamborghini badge.
The fully-functional 8-speed sequential gearbox can then be controlled by a movable paddle gearshift. Interestingly, Lego has fitted the scale model with replica wheels and even an overnight bag in the front hood.
“The Lego brick is an icon in the same way as a Lamborghini super sports car. They both embody the pursuit of design perfection through constant research and development, create different emotions with every interaction, and are valued by generations,” said Stefano Domenicali, Chairman, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini.
Unlike most Lego Technic kits, the Sian set comes with a unique box featuring a cover shaped by the car’s iconic lines. There’s also a special serial number that unlocks “special content”. Furthermore, owners of the kit can scan QR code to watch a series of videocasts by Automobili Lamborghini and LEGO experts, exploring the inspiration behind the design of the original car and the Lego Technic model.
The Lego Technic Sian kit is comprised of 3,696 pieces, which will likely take a few days to complete. Though it won’t cost Php 182 million, the kit is still expensive at USD 380 (about Php 19,000).
