Remember all those yellow Lego pieces that you never knew what to do with? This Lego Lamborghini Gallarado is not only the answer of what to do with those pieces – but is definitely one of the Lego sets that goes straight to the “do not disassemble” shelf.
The Lego Lambo is probably one of the Lego sets that’s at least as cool as the real thing. The model is made to 1:17 scale, and contains enough pieces to create a Coupe or Spyder – your choice. The actual total is apparently 741 pieces, which is more than believable. Want a convertible top? No problem, you can easily equip your new Lambo (remarkably easier to afford than the real thing, to be sure), with a retractable roof.
Very little else is available about this piece of Lego coolness. According to the official Lego website, this Gallarado runs $59.99. Not only that, but you don’t even need a driver’s license for this thing.
Details include opening doors and an opening engine cover, as well as Lamborghini rims. The model comes with instructions (obviously!) that allow you to build this in a variety of configurations. Granted one part of having to build it yourself includes having to put the decals on by hand. The overall dimensions for the Lamborghini Gellarado LP560-4 are 10.5 inches by 4.5 inches by 3 inches.
If you’re interested in all things Lego, then you might be interested in any number of recent Walyou posts on Lego related geek-iness. Among those listings, be sure to check out some Star Wars Lego Toys, including the Republic Attack Fighter and Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter. If cars are more your flavor, you may want to check out the Lamborghini Ankonian Madura, which looks like something from the next Batman flick.
All in all, I think that Lego has done it right with this rather detailed model. And just in time for the holidays and the release of Lego Universe. I’m not a total car guy, and not necessarily a fan of Lambos in general, but this thing is just about too cool to pass up. Heck, it might be worth the cash just to run over it with a Lego Hummer.
