Building a functional toy replica of a car is already a difficult by itself. Building a toy replica of a prestigious sports car, supercars like Bugatti Chiron is even much harder. That being said, that was just LEGO, the famous toy company from Denmark, accomplished. This surprising, stunning, extraordinary “piece of LEGO” called LEGO Bugatti Chiron is truly a sight to behold. Interested? Let’s take a look!
First of all, to clear up any sort of misunderstanding: this is not the miniature LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron, but a full-size, functional LEGO Bugatti Chiron. This one-of-a-kind machinery was made of 339 different types of LEGO Technic elements with a total of more than 1 million LEGO pieces. This thing weighs around 1,500 kg (or about 3,300 lbs), which is about three-fourths the weight of the original Chiron.
In addition, to even more surprise the car has functional exterior with 2 seats for one driver and one passenger. It even has functional speedometer which made of LEGO. Not only that, many other parts of the car like active rear spoiler, doors, lights, steering wheel, brake pedal, all actually work!
So what about its driving function? Powering this LEGO Bugatti Chiron are more than 2,300 Power Function motors, 4,032 gear wheels, and 2,016 axles. The car can generate 5.3 horsepower and it can actually run for real at the max speed of 12 mph (theoretically 18 mph).
Building this car is not a simple work either. It took more than 13,000 hours for the team to put this LEGO Bugatti Chiron together (while it took a whole week to build approx. 2 real Bugatti Chiron cars). And no, it does not require any sort of glue to make this LEGO car a whole. The only non-LEGO materials here are the metal frame and the real Chiron tires.
Will it be a production car? We highly doubt it but at the very least, let’s enjoy this awesome LEGO Bugatti Chiron while we can:
