Lego Finally Builds A Life Size Drivable Car Which Is More Like Bugatti

This may be the coolest LEGO project ever made. There are even load-bearing parts made from the stuff, and no glue was used in the construction - both firsts for a build like this, the Danish company says.

This Lego model is a replicate of a Bugatti Chiron, and from a distance, it's hard to tell the two apart.

The smoothly curved outer skin is built from interconnected triangular segments, including specially made transparent elements, the head and tail-lights work, and even the adjustable spoiler moves, using a combination of power function motors and pneumatics.

"This life-size model is a first of its kind in so many ways and with it, we wanted to push the boundaries of our own imagination", said Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at the LEGO Group.

To be fair, it wasn't entirely LEGO pieces; there's a steel frame, some batteries, 3d-printed gears, and Bugatti tires.

The Bugatti Chiron's US$3-million price tag is, in some part, a function of the incredible amount of labour and time the company's craftspeople have to put into completing one-start to finish, it takes about six months for 20 team members to assemble one of the hand-built hypercars.

The auto contains over a million pieces of Lego Technic, with 2,304 motors and 4,302 gear wheels. Former race vehicle driver Andy Wallace reached 12.4 miles per hour when he took it for a test drive, which might not sound very fast (especially compared to the real version that can reach 261 mph) until you remember what the auto is made of. The Lego version is no match for original Bugatti's speed of over 200mph, however - it only got up to 12mph. This fell to Andy Wallace, former race driver and multiple victor at Le Mans and Daytona.

"Driving the Lego Chiron was a great experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed".
