The stunning Bugatti Chiron, successor to the scene-setting Veyron, is a car like no other. Designed purposely to be the most powerful, fastest and most over-engineered vehicle available, you need a cool $3million to get your hands on one of these 1500bhp, 261mph monsters.
So what if we told you that you can have one for $350? Really, you can! But you won’t be able to fit in it, and you’ll have to build it yourself! We’re talking about the quite sensational new Lego Bugatti Chiron, and it really is something very special indeed.
Not for Kids
Let’s get something straight: we don’t think the Lego Bugatti Chiron is for kids. This is a Big Boy’s toy, in more ways than one! To begin with, there are no fewer than 3599 pieces to this kit. That’s a lot of Lego and a lot of patience needed. It’s 1/8th scale so is quite a chunky size when finished, and the detail is astonishing.
This very serious collector’s kit comes with all the features of the $3million original, in miniature. The V16 engine – a colossal motor in real life – is rendered in stunning miniature detail complete with moving pistons. The wheels have spoked rims, wear low-profile tyres, and detail even extends to brake discs.
The interior is just as incredible; as with the real thing, you can insert a key and switch your Bugatti Chiron to top-speed mode. The steering wheel features a Bugatti logo rendered to tiny perfection, and even the paddle gearshifts can be moved. As we said, this is not a toy!
A Superb Rendition
Lego is very much in vogue at the moment, and it is thanks in no small part to superb kits such as this. Who else would have thought of going into detail as far as an opening bonnet into which you can put your Lego Bugatti overnight bag?
Plus, each one has its own unique serial number, just like the very rare Bugatti Chiron’s in the hands of very lucky owners. Do you fancy one for your collection? If so, the superb Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron is available from Lego stores and at the Lego website, but be quick!
