Feast your eyes on this ridiculous creation. The biggest toy car on Earth! A full scale, driveable version of the Bugatti Chiron crafted almost entirely out of LEGO parts.
Made up of over a million pieces and 339 different types of LEGO Technic elements. The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron can have up to two passengers. Also showcases many of the design features as the original.
This includes everything from the seats, dashboard and the steering wheel decorated with a custom silver coated Bugatti logo also crafted out of Technic bricks. The outer shell is covered with a custom skin built of interconnected triangular divisions – a particular type of LEGO Technic fabric that can be adjusted to shape the cars external form.
Weighing in at 1,500 kilograms which is around 3/4 of the original Chiron. The LEGO Bugatti Chiron shows its working doors & brake pedal fully functional off LEGO Technic. Along with 11 buttons to control the motors lights, turn signals, wiper arms, a working speedometer and rear spoiler!
This masterpiece required a team of 16 specialists. To formulate the one of a kind vehicle which required over 13,400 man-hours to develop and build.
The LEGO Chiron is strikingly similar to the original, however, it is nowhere near as powerful. The engine is made up of more than 6,000 LEGO Technic gear wheels and axels with over 2300 LEGO Motors. The LEGO Chiron produces 5.3 horsepower and 92Nm of torque, resulting in a top speed of 18mph.
Compared to the original which is equipped with a quad-turbocharged W16 engine that generates with a top speed of 261mph, 1,500 horsepower and 1,600Nm of torque. Which is what you would expect from the worlds fastest production car.
The achievements for LEGO are that it is the first large-scale mobile creation to date, yet is far from the biggest LEGO structure in the world as the London Tower Bridge replica still holds the crown for that.
Unfortunately, no you are unable to buy the life-size model, but if you would like to take home a Chiron and don’t have the $3 million to spend on the original, then you can still purchase a miniature LEGO version for $350.
