Bugatti Chiron gets a Lego Technic makeover
Replica of the French hypercar launches today with 3,599 pieces
The £2.1m price tag on the limited-edition Bugatti Chiron puts the French hypercar beyond the reach of most car fans, but Lego has launched a new Technic version that is far more affordable.
While the GT3 RS came with an impressive 2,700 pieces when it launched in 2016, the magazine says the Chiron “trumps” the Porsche with 3,599 individual parts.
All of the hypercar’s parts are widely used in other Lego products, apart from the bespoke wheels that are designed exclusively for the Chiron model.
There’s also a fully functioning steering wheel, a movable rear wing and a small amount of luggage space in the front to pack a “custom Lego Bugatti overnight bag”, the tech website says.
What’s more, Motor1 says each model comes with its own serial number under the bonnet, giving the Lego kit a similar sense of exclusivity that comes with the real car.
