ITALY – Today LEGO and Ducati have surprised us again, presenting the only model in the world of Borgo Panigale’s Red motorcycle 1/1, built with LEGO Technic bricks by the artist Riccardo Zangelmi. Riccardo, who is the only Italian artist recognized as a “LEGO Certified Professional”, build this life-sized replica completely by hand with 15000 bricks!
The Ducati Panigale V4 R and its “twin” built with LEGO Technic elements were placed side by side on 19th June at the Circuit in Modena.
Special guest at this event was Andrea Dovizioso, official racer of the Ducati Team MotoGP, and fan of LEGO bricks who, together with Paolo Lazzarin, General Manager of LEGO Italia and Claudio Domenicali, Ducati CEO, unveiled the special 1/1 version.
Ducati Team MotoGP rider Andrea Dovizioso declared: “I am very happy because I never imagined I’d have the chance to unveil a bike like this. Almost everyone at some point in their lives has played with LEGO bricks at least once, but seeing up close a replica of the Panigale V4 is something incredible and at a very high level. I would like to congratulate the LEGO artist Riccardo Zangelmi for building such a true to life and detailed version of the motorcycle. I’m sure children and adults alike will be captivated by this incredible model”.
