I’ve been building LEGO kits and model kits since I could barely walk. There’s something so satisfying about being given a box of LEGO bricks and turning it into a piece of what I call art, piece by piece. As an automotive enthusiast, I’ve been more than please with LEGO’s attention to my needs in the form of their “Speed Champions” line and a few other standout kits. Now, LEGO has outdone themselves with the revealing of a new Technic kit. This may be the ultimate LEGO kit for the automotive enthusiast.
LEGO developed this kit in partnership with , ensuring that all of the details were could be represented perfectly by pieces from LEGO’s endless inventory. The result is a 1:8 scale Bugatti Chiron replica model (22-inch long, 3,599 pieces) that features all of the bells and whistles found in the real hypercar.
It comes with logoed spoked rims, an 8-speed gearbox with moveable paddle gearshift, an active rear wing that can change position, and a W16 engine with moveable pistons. Though, the cherry on top has to be the Bugatti overnight bag that can be stored in the front storage compartment. Now THAT is attention to detail.
If you’re a fan of Bugatti and have been wanting to get your hands on the new Chiron, this may be one of the best and least expensive ways to do so. Sure, you won’t be whipping around the Hollywood Hills in this kit, but it will most definitely act as a piece of art wherever you place it. And, if you happen to be the owner of a Chiron, here is the one LEGO kit you need in your life.
LEGO will be offering the Technic Bugatti Chiron model at their LEGO stores and starting June 1, 2018. The kit comes with a price tag of $349.99.
