  • Bugatti Chiron Lego Technic Official Reveal – Watch It Live Here

$350 may seem like a bargain when compared to the real Chiron, which starts at about $3 million, or around 8,570 times the price of the Lego kit.

The French racing blue exterior of the toy Chiron hides some of the most interesting creations LEGO has ever made.

The model brings together the iconic design heritage of the French luxury vehicle brand and legendary toy brick makers LEGO.

And when you've finished assembling the model, the instruction manual becomes a coffee-table book about the Bugatti Chiron and how this incredibly detailed replica model was created.

LEGO developed this kit in partnership with Bugatti, ensuring that all of the details were could be represented perfectly by pieces from LEGO's endless inventory. The rear wing moves up and down, too, and is lowered for high-speed mode with a key you build out of Lego pieces. Ive always been passionate about engineering and this models details and design are truly fascinating.”. "I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports vehicle has been translated into the Lego world".


If your children are LEGO gurus who need a challenge - and more importantly, you're a auto nut - put them to work with the new 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. In the case of the Chiron, it has an active rear wing to mimic the real life one that automatically adjusts depending on your speed, a movable paddle gearshift inside the cockpit and a realistic W16 engine with moving pistons.

While it may not be quite as large as the actual vehicle, it's still a big model, even by LEGO standards.

The real Chiron has active aerodynamics with a spoiler that pops up at speed.

"Bugatti sports cars and LEGO building bricks may seem like two very different things, but they share a common design feature: to be the very best", said the toymaker in a statement.
