Back in the summer of 2020, I was looking around for Lamborghini scale models to add to my collection, as I stumbled upon something different … a 3D puzzle recreating the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, it wasn’t available yet, but I still pre-ordered it, it took until late August to finally arrive, but it was worth the wait, for €30 I was able to add a 1/18 scale model of the new Huracan EVO to my collection.
Renowned Ravensburger created this 3D jigsaw puzzle in collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini SpA to allow people to build their own replica of an Arancio Xanto Huracan EVO on Aesir wheels by putting together the puzzle pieces in a pre-determined order.
Keep in mind it’s the body of the Huracan EVO that is made up of puzzle pieces, the chassis is a plastic part, the wheels, complete with brake disks and calipers are plastic parts too, as are the Y insets in the front bumper, the lower rear diffuser, and the rear-view mirrors, also note that some of the 3D puzzle pieces will need to be bent by yourself, which is tricky sometimes.
So you put together the chassis, with the wheels, brakes, spoiler, and diffuser and then start building the body from the 3D pieces … it doesn’t take hours to complete, but it is fun nonetheless, I had a great time building it … but then you have to mount the body with all the 3D pieces interlocked together onto the chassis … and here things can go wrong very quickly.
It took me three attempts to get the body onto the chassis correctly, without having to take the body off again to align the 3d pieces again … it takes a little time and finesse, but in the end, you get a rather nice model of the Huracan EVO, I even put it next to my 1/18 scale AUTOart made Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 scale model for a comparison.
