LEGO Builds Life-Size, Drivable Technic Bugatti Chiron

In case you doubted it, here's the Lego Chiron posing next to the real thing.

Love Lego? Always wanted to drive a Bugatti?

The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron was built with over 1 million LEGO Technic pieces, with more than 339 different types of these elements in use, and no glue holding them together.

The creative minds at Lego have gone full brick-ception and built a life-size, driveable version of the 1:8 scale Bugatti Chiron kit the toy company launched earlier this summer. The Lego Chiron, powered by a matrix of 2,304 Lego Technic motors, isn't quite that fast (theoretically estimated to put out 5.3 horsepower and nearly 68 pounds-feet of torque).

Gamer Derek Jones, who lost to Robertson in the 2016 tournament, said his onetime rival was "one of the nicest people I ever met". The decision comes after the deaths of Elijah Clayton , 22, of Woodland Hills, Calif., and Taylor Robertson , 28, of Giles, W.

The engine inside the vehicle makes 5.3hp so it's not exactly going to go as fast as the real thing. That's easy for us to say, but LEGO cars don't grow on trees. The experts at Lego spent 13,438 hours developing and constructing the model, which features working lights, a retractable rear wing, functional speedometer and removable steering wheel.

Legos have remained the go-to building blocks for decades to exercise the freedom of creativity, and today, they're capable of producing some wild creations. The life-size and functioning model used over 1 million Technic elements, which includes the 2,304 electric motors and 4,032 gear wheels. The LEGO vehicle and the real thing look impressively like each other, even when sitting side-by-side.

"When I first saw the Lego Chiron, I was immediately impressed by the accuracy of the model and the minute attention to detail", he said.

The Lego car's top speed is rather more modest than the production Chiron's mark of 420kph - it will manage about 20kph - but it can still carry two passengers. "I can only imagine how much time and effort went into making this model", Wallace explained.
