“I am very excited about this new model,” said Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group. “Our LEGO designers have done an amazing job capturing the details of this iconic Bugatti design.

“It truly stands as testament that with LEGO bricks you can build anything you can imagine, and an example that with LEGO Technic, you can build for real.

“It’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and design are truly fascinating.”

Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles, added: “The LEGO Technic model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of a perfect relationship.

“I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports car has been translated into the LEGO world and I am sure that fans of both LEGO bricks and Bugatti will love this product.”

It’s also packed full of intricate details including aerodynamic bodywork with an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, a detailed cockpit with movable paddle gearshift, and detailed W16 engine with moving pistons.
