Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián vs Bugatti Chiron
UPDATE: Check out my new comparison of the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián vs Ferrari Daytona SP3 Lego set.
These days Lego Technic is becoming more and more popular and there is enormous amount of Lego Technic building sets on the market too. In this article, I would like to focus on and compare the following two Lego kits which I find rather interesting. These sets are the models of Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (42115) and Bugatti Chiron (42083).
The first set of my today’s review is the model of Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. This building kit is made of 3,696 pieces and most of the bricks are made in a nice vibrant green color. The green color makes the model beautiful together with the black color and with stylish gold accents on the tires.
This model has many interesting details like the V12 engine with movable pistons, the authentic cockpit with many details and the most interesting is the eight-speed working gearbox with movable paddle gearshift. Furthermore, I really like the spoilers and the iconic Lamborghini Scissor doors.
The model of the car is made in the 1:8 scale and it is 5″ (13cm) high, 23″ (60cm) long and 9″ (25cm) wide. You will get the model in luxurious box which is made in the same color as the model and together with that, there is a pretty well-done instructions booklet which will also catch your eye.
The second model of this review is Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron. This model is made just of 3,599 bricks and it is made in the dark blue, light blue and black color. The model is made in the same scale as the model above – 1:8 and it is almost the same size – 5″ (14cm) high, 22″ (56cm) long and 12.5″ (32cm) wide.
With this building kit, you can build an iconic supercar with breathtaking details – the authentic interior with all of the technicalities, fully-working eight speed gear box, movable gearshift, low-profile tires, detailed brake discs and much more. This car is also equipped with interesting W16 engine with moving pistons and if you want to reach the top speeds, there is a key with which you can move the active rear wing from handling to top speed position. I love the smallest details like the unique serial number under the hood.
As it was with the first model, the building kit is sold in a fancy box with a collector’s booklet where you will also find the building instructions but also some facts about the model.
Both models have quite large amount of bricks, so they are both suitable for older teenagers and for adults. I have to say that these Lego building kits will enjoy everyone.
To sum up, they are both perfectly detailed. The models are made into the smallest details and you will definitely enjoy building both of them. As usually, there are no Lego minifigures in both building kits. I would recommend you the first model of Lamborghini because it has more bricks in the packaging (97 more) and you will have more fun constructing it than in the case of the Bugatti model. Also, the Lamborghini model is a more recent one, it was released in 2020.
And I also like that in the case of Lamborghini, Lego was not afraid of the color and they made the supercar in the beautiful vibrant green/lime color, while in the second case the blue color is just good-looking but not breathtaking. Also, both models come in very nice exclusive packaging, but the Lamborghini model’s box is even more interesting.
Finally, I should also say that there is another large Lego Technic supercar set like these two, the 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set. I have written an older comparison of the Porsche building kit with the Bugatti set, too. So, you can find out some more details about Lego Technic Lamborgihini vs Bugatti vs Porsche if you have read this article and will also read the other one. Hopefully, you will then be able to make a wise buying decision. Good luck on that! 🙂
