This week has seen a slew of LEGO news – from the official reveal of LEGO DOTS, to the new LEGO sets being introduced at Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, and now to one that caters to older LEGO fans. LEGO has just announced that starting June this year, fans of the Technic theme have something to look forward to, the first-ever LEGO Technic Lamborghini set.
Based on their press release, this LEGO Technic Lamborghini set will be part of what the LEGO Group dubs as the LEGO Technic Ultimate Series which began with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) from 2016, and Bugatti Chiron (42083) from 2018. Based on its predecessors, this upcoming Lamborghini-inspired Technic set will similarly follow a 1:8 scale, featuring a highly sophisticated build, designed to imitate its real-life counterpart.
The new 1:8 scale set will launch in summer 2020 and will be the third model in the LEGO Technic Ultimate series, following on from its hugely popular predecessors, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS in 2016 and Bugatti Chiron in 2018. For fifty years, Automobili Lamborghini has produced beautifully designed, iconic super sports cars that are instantly recognisable. This new partnership will see Lamborghini and LEGO Technic joining forces to deliver the engineering excellence and design flair that both companies have become famous for. With the possibility of constructing transmissions, differentials and gearing systems, LEGO Technic is an advanced building experience that many fans find challenging yet rewarding. When you build with LEGO Technic, you learn how to Build for Real.
We have no further info or images available about this set, save for the teaser poster above. It’s really hard to figure out what particular Lamborghini model this is. It can be based on the existing Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO, or it can be an entirely new model. We just have to wait and see.
Brickset has also listed this as LEGO Technic Lamborghini (42115), and we can expect this to have an early VIP release on June 1. So what do you think this new LEGO Technic Lamborghini will look like? Shout out your comments below.
