Lego builds full-scale driving Bugatti Chironby Justin King
The replica Chiron actually drives, albeit slightly slower than the original 1,479-horsepower car.
Lego's Technic division has built a replica version of the Bugatti Chiron.
Amazingly, the 1:1 copy actually drives with power from electric motors used in Lego's standard production models.
The Technic design team started the 1:1 project after completing the 1:8 scale model, viewing the full-size replica as the 'ultimate challenge.' Building the car required a team of 16 specialists and over 13,000 man hours.
The Lego Chiron required over a million Technic elements, including 339 different types of pieces. It weighs in at more than 3,300 pounds and boasts just 5.3 horsepower and 67 pound-feet of torque.
The company posted a video of the Lego Chiron crawling along the Ehra Lessien test track outside Wolfsburg, the same track where the original Chiron was tested.
