This Fully Functional Bugatti Is Made Out Of Over A Million Lego Pieces
When you thought you’ve seen everything Lego has to offer, the toy company goes and makes a Bugatti Chiron out of a million Technic pieces that you can actually drive
We’ve been to Legoland and have seen our fair share of crazy stuff built completely out of Legos - ranging from huge dinosaur heads popping out of big bodies of water to life-size people who sit on benches and will take pictures with you. But nothing we’ve ever seen before compares to this Bugatti Chiron supercar that was built using over a million Lego Technic pieces.
The car took nearly 13,500 hours to build and the initial concept started back in June of last year. The Lego Bugatti was built by the Lego creative team as a promotion for this year’s Italian Grand Prix and while the car may look like it might be partly CGI generated, it is in fact nearly all made out of Legos. The steel frame, a few batteries, 3D printed gears and Bugatti wheels were some of the only parts not made of plastic.
While it may not go as fast as a regular Bugatti Chiron, the car does still in fact move. In the video above, the Lego team was able to hit top speeds of a whopping 13 miles per hour, although it could theoretically go as fast as 19 miles per hour. But overall, the car functions as a regular vehicle, equipped with doors that open and close, a spoiler that lifts and lowers at a push of a button and a detachable steering wheel just in case you're worried that someone may take off with the car.
