Lego Technic Ferrari Daytona SP3 vs Lamborghini Sián FKP 37
Lego is becoming more and more popular among adults, so Lego is trying to produce new building sets not just for kids but even for adults. Those are usually well-detailed models in high scales. In today’s review I will be comparing two models which were made mainly for adult fans of Lego building kits – Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (42115) and Ferrari Daytona SP3 (42143) from the Lego Technic collection.
Lego Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 42115
The first Lego set of this review is Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. It is a building kit containing 3,696 pieces, so it is so enjoyable to build it. At the first sight you will see an astonishing model of a sports car in lime-green color with golden rims. But it is not just any model. It was made in cooperation with the manufacturer of Lamborghini, and it is such well detailed model.
The cockpit is introduced to you just after opening the iconic Lamborghini Scissor doors. Even the cockpit is made into the single detail with authentic console inside. The steering wheel is fully working so you can control the position of the car with it.
The set is packed in a luxurious packaging made in the same lime-green color as the car. Inside of the box, there is collectors’ booklet where you will find the building instructions. Furthermore, there are some details and behind-the-scenes interviews from the Lego and Lamborghini teams that worked on this model.
This Lego building kit comes with a decorative display plate and unique serial number making it a perfect piece for collectors and those who want to display the model on the shelf. The model was made in a 1:8 scale so it is 5 inches (13 cm) high, 23 inches (58 cm) long and 9 inches (23 cm) wide.
Lego Technic Ferrari Daytona SP3 42143
The second model I will be talking about is the Ferrari Daytona SP3. Alike the first model, it was made for adults and offers an immersive building experience. There are 3,778 parts with which you will build a Ferrari supercar in the iconic red color typical for the Ferrari cars. The bodywork of the model is completed with authentic logo and other details such as the chrome-painted rims.
It is made into smallest details featuring authentic V12 engine with moving pistons, working 8-speed gearbox along with functional steering. The cockpit can be accessed by opening butterfly doors typical for this type of Ferrari. The roof can be removed so you can turn the car into a cabriolet.
This model is also from the collectible range, so the kit includes a display plate and a unique serial number. This unique number unlocks special online rewards and content to the owners of the set. The model was made in 1:8 scale same as the Lamborghini model. It is 5.5 inches (14 cm) high, 23 inches (58 cm) long and 9.5 inches (24 cm) wide.
To wrap it all up, they are both astonishing models made in such a high quality. They both feature realistic functions and I like that they both have working gearboxes or engines with moving pistons.
Both fun building but the first one, Lamborghini Sián, is a little bit more interesting for me. The car looks more sophisticated, and I like that Lego was not afraid to come up with the vibrant lime-green color for its model. The bodywork of the model is more precisely made according to me. In addition, the Lamborghini model is slightly more elegant to me than the Ferrari model. Moreover, the Lamborghini packaging looks gorgeous, and it contains the collectors’ booklet full of interesting facts and behind-the-scenes stories which you won’t find in the Ferrari set.
Also, here’s a YouTube video that my friend created about these 2 Lego sets – you may find it helpful to make your final buying decision between these 2 Lego sets.

Lego enthusiast, big Lego Technic fan. I have been blogging about Lego since 2017, when I started this blog. When I’m not writing an article for this blog or building a Lego set, I’m probably riding my bike. You can find out more about me here.
