LEGO’s Bugatti Chiron is a 3,599 piece DIY supercar


Then you'll likely be excited to know that Lego has released a 1:8 scale replica model of the sports auto that's available right now for £330.

And this is the latest in the Technic series, revealed on Friday at Lego headquarters in Billund, Denmark - a one-eighth scale model of the Bugatti Chiron - 3599 parts that fit together to create a replica model more than 560mm long, 250mm wide and 140mm high.

Then the Lego designers put wheels under their bricks - and suddenly the sky was the limit, as Lego models of cars, trucks and all sorts of machinery became possible, rivalling even British competitor Meccano for versatility. For example, the new Lego Chiron has an active rear wing and the detailed W16 engine has moving pistons. And why wouldn't it be, considering the subject is the halo vehicle of halo cars, the Bugatti Chiron.

Inside, the cabin presents a faithful re-creation of the production vehicle, featuring the Chiron's dual clutch gearbox complete with working paddles.

The wait is nearly over as the reveal will take place today at the new Lego House in Billund, Denmark where Lego's CEO together with Bugatti president, Stephan Winkelmann, will take the wraps off the new Lego Technic set carrying the number 42083. You even get a key, which cannot only switch the active rear wing from "handling" to "top speed" position, but also unlocks the hood to reveal a serial number that's unique to each model.

Being a Lego Technic, this Bugatti Chiron is far more than just a simple static model, as it includes all sorts of working mechanical components that sit under the body.

LEGO says each model will get a unique serial number to identify it.

Only one color will be offered, the duo-tone blue that's so closely associated with Bugatti.

It is available from lego stores and for £329.99. As a bonus, buyers also receive a comprehensive construction guide that doubles as a coffee table-style collector's booklet.
