Introducing the ultimate LEGO Technic project – a driveable, full-scale Bugatti Chiron that can be driven.
There’s enough space for two in the non-glued, fully-functional, self-propelled model and it can accelerate to around 13mph (20km/h).
Constructed out of more than 1,000,000 LEGO Technic elements, it uses motors from the LEGO Power Function platform, developing a mighty 5.3hp – just slightly less than the real thing.
Seen from a distance side by side, the resemblance of the two cars is striking. Get closer and you will find a fascinating and complex outer ‘skin’ structure, built of interconnected triangular segments made into a LEGO Technic ‘fabric’ designed to mimic the iconic shapes of the original Chiron.
Peek inside and discover that every single detail of the original car has been carefully and precisely recreated in LEGO Technic elements – from seats, to dashboard and the steering wheel.
“When I first saw the LEGO Chiron, I was immediately impressed by the accuracy of the model and the minute attention to detail,” said Le Mans winning racing driver Andy Wallace, who took the model for a spin.
“In fact, from about 20 metres away it’s not obvious that you are looking at a LEGO car. I can only imagine how much time and effort went into making this model.
“Driving the LEGO Chiron was a great experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed. All those years ago I could never have imagined that one day I would actually drive a LEGO car!”
