The Folks At Lego Built An Actual Drivable Bugatti Chiron

This Working Bugatti Chiron Is Built Out Of Lego Technic

Get closer and you will find a fascinating and complex outer "skin" structure, built of interconnected triangular segments made into a LEGO Technic "fabric" created to mimic the iconic shapes of the original Chiron.

After various over the top monuments and unbelievable replicas made with a Lego set, this new achievement has taken lego art to a whole other level! A steel frame supports the 3,300-pound vehicle. That's significantly slower than a real Chiron, which claims a top speed of 420km/h with a limiter. To ensure the scale model looks like the real deal, it's equipped with a fully functional speedometer, steering wheel, brake pedal and rear spoiler (not that you'll need the downforce), all assembled from Technic bits and pieces ... without any glue to keep it together. Over 1 million Lego pieces were used to create an operational replica of a Bugatti Chiron with a "theoretical" top speed of 18 miles per hour, just a tad less than the 261 miles per hour of the real deal.

Now we're just hoping they launch their own racing league for vehicles made entirely out of Lego.

Making its debut at the Italian Formula One Grand Prix over the weekend, the 1.5-tonne model took over 13,000 hours to develop and construct.

He said SWR had treated the union with "utter contempt" by appointing negotiators with no authority to reach a settlement. The RMT, however, fears the company is putting "private profit before public safety" with staff also affected.

LEGO adds: "We were even more excited when Bugatti's official test driver and former Le Mans victor, Andy Wallace, agreed to test drive the Technic version of the Chiron on its first drive".

It produces a theoretical 4kW and an estimated 92Nm of torque, reaching speeds a little over 20km/h.

LEGO won't be winning any races with its Technic Bugatti, but the project is a first for the brand.
