It's also a hybrid but for a static car not sure your how you can show that off in Lego.

With a sticker :)

I think the new left and right 3x13 panels will be used in the roof.

The middle part can be the normal 3x13 panel, or maybe a new type: 3x13 with tapers on both sides.

According to the bueprints, the Lamborghini is quite bigger than Chiron, after rescaling, the Lambo should be 6 cm longer and little bit wider.

Interesting observations on the size, it should indeed be ~8 studs longer, 1 wider and ~1.5-2 lower then the Chiron (if the Chirons dimensions correctly follow the real deal)

Looking at the profile shots, i think if they want to do the real car justice, they will have to find another solution for the front wheel arches then the normal porsche wheel arche, that would be too bulky around the top of the arch.

@vectormatic I have just calculated and compared the real size Chiron and the Lego version, and yes, the dimensions are very close to each other. Only the height of Lego Chiron should be around 1 cm higher.

This is exactly what I've been wondering for the past few days. The Porsche wheel arch is too squarish, and adding a 3x13 curved panel on top only makes the design more bulky.

Maybe there will be no wheel arc piece used at all, and the shape will be achieved using different beams and panels.

Very interesting point.  This may drive a bit larger cost and piece count vs. Chiron too.

Personally id expect them to use flex axles and perhaps a strategically placed 3x13 curved panel for the wheel arch, another bespoke part would be pretty much useless for anything except these very pointy nosed supercars.

@Jaromir Interesting that the Chiron is too low, that means the Lambo should be roughly the same height in lego form, just a tad wider and 8 studs longer.

It's going look good next to the Bugatti and Porsche. I'm not fussed on the functions as it's just going to be a shelf queen for me

I know there are many of you that don’t like this green color; but I think it would be great, and much better than plain red or something like that ?

Again, since the Porsche was orange and the Bugatti was blue, I’m really hoping the color of the Lambo will be anything else but red. 
Lamborghini cars come often in special colors. I hope it’s a nice yellow or purple or something like that. 
Red wouldn’t look good next to the Porsche...

I’m also not worried about functions, but they better get the shape and profile of the car right; and make it look good and sharp. 
The Porsche’s nose was a little off with the hood not very pretty and lots of holes everywhere. 
The Bugatti was a little better with the holes, but the nose was still weird. 
If they don’t get the nose of the Lambo ‘clean’ it’s really going to hurt the overall look of the car I think. I hope they come up with maybe new panels to fix that problem, and not trying to ‘shape’ things too much using flex axles, etc.

I wonder what the Lambo would look like in bright light orange. Might be too close to 42056 porsche orange to be concidered, but still. I'm more interested in what colour and design the wheels will be in though.

It is not so much of a "problem", is it? It is more a "nice to have" thing, or am I wrong?

Also, new shape required = new LEGO part/panel required to match that shape is a bit like Revell or Tamiya, isn't it? I always though LEGO is about getting as close rather than have the perfect match.

:thumbup: 

Please have TLG create this with existing panels as much as possible. I'd rather see some extravagant assemblies trying to come close to the real thing like in the Chiron front end, than getting me a model kit with exactly copied shapes with otherwise useless parts.

Agreed, but I still think we would all benefit from a different wheel arch mold for lower, rounder cars like this one, where the long straight on top of the current arch will be bad looking.

That was the thing in the Past, when Lego  is in their limit.

but now/today, they always say " we're pushing beyond the very limit"  

and you will not pay the very expensive price to buy an ugly looking Set 

So Lego must go Above our expectation to make my kidney worthy 😉
