LEGO Just Made a Life-Sized Drivable Bugatti Chiron

You’ve got to hand it over to the guys at Lego. Just recently, they’ve released a Technic model of the 2018 Bugatti Chiron hypercar. It’s impressive on its own with a functioning gearbox and all. However, Lego decided that they wanted to take the Technic Bugatti to the next level. The result? A life-sized one that actually works and drives using just Lego parts.

With just the wheels, tires, and the front badge the only things made of non-Lego pieces, the resulting 1:1 Chiron weighs in at about 1,500 kilograms and took over 13,000 man-hours to finish. Powered by 2,304 Lego Power Function motors, it produces about 5 horsepower and 92 Nm of torque. Top speed? 20 km/h. For reference, the actual Chiron makes 1,500 horsepower and weighs about a ton more.

More than just being drivable, the Technic Chiron has all its lights, speedometer, and even the rising rear wing all working and made of Lego Technic parts. What’s even more amazing that all significant structural and load-bearing parts are made of the plastic bricks without any reinforcements or glue.

The most amazing thing? Lego reckons that this kit costs about USD 100,000 (~ P 5.346 million) which is actually just 10 percent the cost of a real Chiron.
