The LEGO Lamborghini Hybrid Is the Perfect Post-Holiday Gift

For those who might’ve been disappointed by their holiday gifts, there’s the opportunity to splurge on a suitable replacement this post-holiday season: A mini supercar. LEGO is selling a miniature model Lamborghini Sián FKP 37, the Italian luxury sports car manufacturer’s inaugural hybrid vehicle. Made from nearly 3,700 pieces, LEGO’s Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 features the real-life supercar’s dynamic curves, audacious angles, and galactic appeal. If it weren’t for the toy’s 1/8 scale dimensions, you’d be tempted to hop in to try and give it a spin. For now, you’ll have to settle for remote controlling the model’s working engine and transmission.

LEGO collaborated with Lamborghini for over a year to plan and incorporate all of the Sián FKP 37’s intricate details. These include a LEGO Technics system, a V12 Engine with working pistons, a rigorously recreated cockpit, an adjustable spoiler, and an incredible, eight-speed working gearbox. With such craftsmanship, you will need to be an accomplished and devoted tinkerer to get this baby up to speed.

A timeless, focused calm will enmesh builders in the immersive experience of putting together the model’s 3,696 pieces. The rewards of attending to this manufacture with complete focus? Unrivaled detail that mimics the V12, 220mph hybrid monster.

Fine points include signature, push-button scissor doors, a fluid rear spoiler that provides the downforce to keep the Sián land-bound, matching, drum-lacquered, glossy gold rims, a recreated V12 pushrod suspension system and power train, exact replica brake discs, calipers, and rear differential, a drivable steering wheel, and a paddle gear shift that’s visible from underneath the car.

Not impressed yet? Well, it turns out that there really is a life-sized Lego Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. Let’s hear from the Behind the Scenes narrator.

“At the end of such a project, you’re always thinking, ‘What more could we do?’ ‘How can we keep this great collaboration going?’ After speaking to the design team in Sant’Agata Lamborghini’s Headquarters, we came up with the idea of ‘going big’ and creating a full-size, 1:1 scale version of the Sián FKP 37 to show what is possible with the LEGO Technic system.”

More than 400,000 LEGO pieces later, a 4,850-pound plastic, lime green Sián model emerged, nearly identical to the real McCoy. Lamborghini press stated that the Lego version “perfectly mirror(s) the car’s dimensions to the millimeter.” Both vehicles measure 196 inches long, 83 inches wide, and 45 inches tall.

LEGO reports that it took a team of 15 people approximately 8,660 hours of development and painstaking construction to recreate the Sián in plastic block form.

The 1:8 scale LEGO model measures over five inches high, 23 inches long, and nine inches wide. There’s a decorative display plate and unique serial number that unlocks exclusive online content. Presented in a special box, the LEGO Sián comes complete with two coffee table building instruction books, images, and behind-the-scenes interviews.

The LEGO Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 has since sold out on LEGO’s website. The cars, however, are still available on Amazon for $380 USD.

The 10 most expensive collector cars in the world
Forget about six figures — these seven-, eight-, and nine-figure collector cars drew a lot of attention last year

Last year was a great year for automakers. Luxury brands like Rolls-Royce and Bentley saw their profits skyrocket. The rich got richer and decided to spend more money on cars than ever. While most people were having a hard time finding a car or worrying about how they would be able to afford a large dealer markup, collectors spent ludicrous amounts of money on classic cars.
According to, the top 10 most expensive collector’s cars that sold at auction last year represented a total of $250 million in sales. The most "affordable" car sold at auction for $7,595,000, while the most expensive one was $146,588,400. These are the top 10 most expensive collector cars that sold at auction in 2022.

1954 Ferrari 375 America Vignale Cabriolet – $7,595,000
Ferrari was a much different automaker in the 1950s than it is today. The Italian marque focused a lot more on grand tourers back then, and the Ferrari 375 America is an excellent example of that. The 375 America featured a detuned version of the Lampredi engine from the 375 MM racecar and arrived as a replacement for the 342 America. It was built in incredibly low numbers, as Ferrari only built 10 375 Americas, though two more vehicles that started off as 250 Europas were converted at the factory later on. Buyers had their choice of a few coachwork upgrades from Pinin Farina and Vignale, but what makes this car so special is that it was the only vehicle to have coachwork done by Vignale and be a cabriolet.
This car’s history is also remarkable. The vehicle was personally sold by Enzo Ferrari to Bianca Colizzi, film director Giuseppe Colizzi’s daughter. Remarkably, the vehicle has matching numbers for its engine, gearbox, rear axle, and bodywork. Additionally, it still has its original factory hard top.

These are the 8 essential car fluids you should be checking regularly
ICE vehicles need more than just gas and oil to run
Mechanic checking engine oil by lifting up the dipstick under the hood of a car.

Most car owners don't realize how complicated their vehicles really are. Cars with an internal combustion engine need fluids, and lots of them, to operate smoothly. You probably know about the basics, like engine oil, gasoline, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and transmission fluid. But what about differential fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and air conditioning refrigerant? All of these fluids need to be checked routinely and flushed on a regular schedule. 

Depending on your vehicle, you might need some special tools to get to these fluids if you want to replace them. But if you’re just looking to check what kind of shape they’re in, most are easy to get to.

BMW, hybrid cars, and EVs dominate Consumer Reports’ top rankings
It’s the first time BMW has landed in the top spot of Consumer Reports’ rankings
2023 BMW XM

Consumer Reports tests hundreds of vehicles a year and conducts some of the most intensive tests in the industry. Apparently, the organization logs hundreds of thousands of miles on test vehicles annually to help consumers make an educated purchase. Recently, Consumer Reports ranked 32 car brands in its annual Auto Brand Report Card Rankings and, for the first time in the organization’s history, BMW came out on top as having the most reliable cars.
Before we get into the results, here’s how Consumer Reports ranks its vehicles. Each car that Consumer Reports tests gets an Overall Score. The score is based on four factors: reliability, safety, owner satisfaction, and the road test. The predicted reliability score comes from the organization’s survey that's based on 17 problem areas in cars. A safety score is determined by crash-test scores and available safety features, while the owner satisfaction score is based on a survey that’s completed by Consumer Reports' members. Lastly, the road-test score is based on the various tests that the organization puts vehicles through.

BMW topped Consumer Reports brand rankings with an overall score of 81. Subaru (79), Mini (79), Lexus (77), Honda (77), Toyota (76), Genesis (76), Mazda (75), Audi (74), and Kia (73) finish off the top 10. Out of the automakers in the top 10, Genesis made the largest leap, moving up 12 spots compared to last year, while Mazda fell six spots.
“BMW builds many high-performance, full-featured, and reliable models, so it’s not surprising to see it at the top of our brand rankings,” said Jake Fisher, senior director of automotive testing at Consumer Reports. “But non-luxury brands like Subaru, Toyota, and Mazda have also consistently ranked high over the past few years, ensuring that consumers don’t have to sacrifice affordability to get a high-quality car.”
Automakers that did poorly as the least reliable cars in Consumer Reports’ testing include: Land Rover (45), Jeep (46), Jaguar (52), Alfa Romeo (53), Mitsubishi (54), GMC 955), and Mercedes-Benz (56). Chrysler, which finished in 25th place, had the most dramatic drop of any automaker, falling 12 spots compared to last year.
