Lovers of small plastic bricks and cars will have already seen that the Lego brand markets a scale model of Bugatti Chiron on a scale of 1:8. This Lego Technic represents 3600 pieces to become a replica of Chiron in the following dimensions: 56cm long, 25cm wide and 14cm high. A beautiful model to assemble with patience, recommended for children from 16 years old and not at all prohibited for adults. Please note that the box costs 400€.
But Lego goes further by unveiling today a Life size Bugatti Chiron, assembled in Lego Technic and rolling bricks ! It took more than 3,600 spare parts, but more than a million bricks and more than 13,000 hours of assembly work to make this full-sized Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron . Only tires, rims and transmission chains are not made of Lego Technic.
If the original model reaches 400km/h, this plastic clone will not exceed 30km/h thanks to its engine with a power of barely 5 horsepower. It is therefore not a 1500 hp W16 8.0L engine that has been placed under the brick hood but no less than 2,304 electric motors that total the phenomenal power of 5.3 hp and 92 Nm of torque. Lego pieces have been specially created for this unique achievement. The plastic car will be exhibited at the next Paris Motor Show in October.
And this is what the scale model of the Bugatti Chiron Lego Technic looks like:
