The Bugatti Chiron is one of the most anticipated cars in recent memory. The ultra-powerful performance motor features an 8-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine and is capable of reaching a top speed of 250 mph. Bugatti have gone a step further and introduced a model for young enthusiasts.
Partnering with the LEGO group, the company have developed the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. The 1:8 scale model is made out 3599 pieces and was unveiled at LEGO House in Billund, Denmark. There is a lot of detail with the car, ranging from the blue pseudo-skin to the interior. The inside of the Technic has an 8-speed gearbox with paddle shifters and steering wheel with the Bugatti logo. It also has the W16 engine with moving pistons. The car features a unique serial number under the bonnet, which can be used to unlock special content on the LEGO website.
The model measures 560 mm long by 250 mm wide and 140 mm high. It comes packaged with a coffee-table style collector’s book that has detailed build instructions. LEGO CEO Niels B Christiansen is pleased with the car. “Our LEGO designers have done an amazing job capturing the details of this iconic Bugatti design. It truly stands as a testament that with LEGO bricks you can build anything you can imagine, and an example that with LEGO Technic, you can build for real. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and designs are truly fascinating.”
Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles has also had his say. “The LEGO Technic model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of a perfect relationship. I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports car has been translated into the LEGO world and I am sure that fans of both LEGO bricks and Bugatti will love this.”
The Bugatti Technic will be available on August 1st 2018.
