Fun fact of the day, Internet: The Lamborghini Urus—all 2,199kg of it—is no longer the heaviest new Lamborghini. This is.
It’s a Sián fashioned entirely out of Lego Technic. A life-size, 2,200kg Lego Lambo. We’re going to need a bigger toy box.
Lego, as all actual children and overgrown kids like us know by now, likes a supercar. It has done models of various McLarens, Porsches, and Ferraris over the years. After it had brick-ified the Bugatti Chiron, someone had the barmy idea of building a life-size version that actually runs.
Clearly bored in lockdown, the Lego skunkworks has now built an homage to Lamborghini’s supercap-hybrid boosted limited-edition V12. And boy, did it go over the top.
Supercars are all about numbers, but these figures are just silly. Over 400,000 pieces of Lego were used in its construction. It took 5,370 hours to design the model, and a further 3,290 hours to actually build, thanks to a team of 15 Czech Lego ‘building and engineering specialists.’ It’s 4.9 meters long and over two meters wide.
Look, it’s even been painted in Lamborghini’s actual factory paint shop to make sure the bodywork correctly matches the Sant’Agata swatch. Natty.
Now, far be it from Top Gear to nitpick at this sizeable engineering achievement, but there are issues here. No windshield: could make things a tad draughty. As could the fact the bodywork isn’t, you know, airtight. And it appears the doors don’t actually open. A V12 Lambo without silly doors? What is the world coming to?
Still, if you ever bump into a Sián owner and they start boasting their hypercar is one of just 63 ever made, at least you can tap the end of your nose and tell them: “Actually, friend, there was just this one other...”
