LEGO, known for typical store products as well as large-scale designs, has done it once again. This time, the LEGO Technic design team built a fully functional Bugatti Chiron. Yes, a LEGO automobile that is fully operational! Even furthermore, one that looks exactly like the Chiron sports car. This 1:1 model includes drive functionality via Power Function motor tech from standard LEGO products. Yes, those little electric motors work together to move a full-size vehicle! Although this car would most likely be highly unsafe at any speed, it is quite an amazing feat.

The Bugatti Chiron LEGO Edition was a project given to the LEGO Technic team in Kladno, Czech Republic. Here, the LEGO Technic team works on complex models for LEGO stores and LEGOLAND parks. But, making a functional Chiron out of LEGOs was even a test for them. Beforehand, Aurelien Rouffiange and the rest of the design team recently completed a 1:8 scale Chiron for $349.99. So, it was time to step it up to the next level. With 16 specialists ranging from design to mechanical to electrical fields, this project was tackled with 13,438-man hours. Phew! That is quite an investment of labor and time!

The Bugatti Chiron LEGO Edition includes over 1,000,000 LEGO Technic elements. This includes 339 different types of elements for the build. Surprisingly, absolutely no glue was used in the assembly process. With a total weight of 3,307 pounds (1500 kg), this weighs as much as an actual car! So, moving a car like this requires a lot of power, even for low speed.

“Under the hood”, the Bugatti Chiron LEGO Edition has 2,304 Power Functions motors. Yes, it really does! Next, there are 4,032 LEGO Technic gear wheels. Furthermore, the car fits 2,016 LEGO Technic cross axles. Theoretically, the motors work together to produce around 5.3 horsepower. But, on the other hand, the torque equates to 68 lb.-ft. (92 Nm). That torque is how this vehicle gets going. To make it even more insane, the car has a functional rear spoiler and speedometer, both entirely of LEGOs.

An Engineering Feat for LEGO

Overall, the Bugatti Chiron LEGO Edition is quite an engineering feat. At the actual 1:1 scale, this car is quite the spectacle. With LEGO pieces in and out, no one expects to see it roll down the track. Although it may not be fast, it is functional. But, for everyone’s interest, these will not be sold due to liability. Life only knows how many people would try “stupid” stunts while driving one of these. For now, it is best to keep cars like this to the company itself. In conclusion, the LEGO Chiron is beautiful and deserves the utmost respect.
