Lego’s Tech team built this is a 1:1-scale Bugatti Chiron using mostly standard pieces (excepting a few special pieces to replicate functions from the actual car)
Lego Bugatti Chiron by the numbers:
- 13,000 work hours
- Over one million pieces
- 339 different types of Lego pieces, traditionally snapped together (no glue)
- 1 really cool pneumatically powered variable spoiler
- 2,304 Lego Power Functions L-Motors (the same ones that power the Lego toys)
- Top speed of 18 mph
And details? The replica features the same startup lighting sequence as the original car.
Why? To show that they can.
