First ever LEGO® Technic™ Lamborghini set will launch globally in summer 2020.
29th January 2020, Billund: The LEGO Group is delighted to announce a partnership between Italian super sports cars car manufacturer, Automobili Lamborghini and LEGO® Technic™, the building system that allows older kids and adults to create more advanced, complex models.
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.

In the digital age, where entertainment is often via a screen, our collaboration with the LEGO Group allows enthusiasts to live a real experience, reproducing a Lamborghini super sports car in every detail to create an outstanding model, just like the real car.”
