Earlier this year, we teased you with the news that Automobili Lamborghini and the Lego Group had joined forces and were planning to release a first-ever Lamborghini super sports car by Lego Technic. The catch: you had to wait until June 1 to get one.
At the time it sure seemed like an excruciatingly long time to wait, didn’t it? Check your calendar.
Say hello to the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37: a 3696-piece, 1:8-scale model that is surely easier than the real thing to build at home.
Once the model is constructed, the front hood opens to reveal a miniature Lamborghini overnight bag, together with a unique serial number that unlocks special content.
Lego Technic is a challenging, advanced building system that offers kids and adults the opportunity to construct transmissions, differentials, and gearing systems. And, according to Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, "Each Lamborghini super sports car can be unique, thanks to our Ad Personam personalization program and the specific driving style of each owner."
Retailing for $379.99, the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 will be available at Lego stores and on Lego’s website beginning Monday, June 1.
Other popular Lego cars include the Ferrari F40, Ford Mustang, and Dodge Demon. Recent releases include Dom Toretto’s Dodge Charger and, for motorcycle enthusiasts, a Ducati Panigale. Since many Lego cars are either on back order or have been discontinued, you probably shouldn’t wait if you want a 1:8-scale Lambo of your very own. They’ll likely be gone as fast as the real thing.
