Bugatti Just Built The 100th Chiron, Has 400 More Models To Go
Bugatti only plans to build 500 Chirons, and the French automaker just built its 100th Chiron last week. As expected, it commemorated the occasion by throwing a party in its headquarters in Molsheim, France. The 100th Chiron is expected to go to a customer in the Middle East, who dressed up his new hypercar with a number of exclusive touches, ultimately settling for one that comes with a net price tag of €2.85 million, or somewhere around $3.33 million.
The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron is So Precisely Detailed that the W-16 Engine Even Has Moving Pistons
The new Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron set has arrived with extreme detail, a traditional bi-colored blue paint scheme, and a W-16 engine with moving pistons. Priced at $349.99 in the U.S., it doesn’t come cheap, but the detail is out of this world, including a life-like cabin with a Technic eight-speed transmission, movable paddle shifters, and a Bugatti emblem on the steering wheel. The exterior features all of the aerodynamic enhancements of the real thing, and to top things off, if you insert the top speed key, the wing will transition from the handling position to the top speed position. The engine even has moving pistons and extreme detail like we’ve never seen before on a scale model.
The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron Box Leaks Just Hours After Its June 1st Debut was Announced
These days automakers and corporations have just as many leaky holes as the U.S. Government. And, we’re not even kidding. How many “leaks” have we seen of cars just days before the debut in the past 12 months? It’s honestly starting to become commonplace. And, that’s why we’re here as just hours after the Lego Technic Buggati Chiron kit was teased. It turns out that someone couldn’t wait to share the kit with us and has decided to leak out an image of the box.
We can’t see the full box, unfortunately, but what we can see gives us insight into the most essential information. First, we know what it looks like. It’ll carry the traditional dual shades of blue and will apparently feature that light tan interior. There are even tiny square Lego pieces to make up the LED headlights up front – now that’s attention to detail. Furthermore, it will carry the set No. 42083 and will come in a total of 3,599 pieces. That’s nearly 900 pieces more than included with the 911 GT3 RS and more than enough to keep you busy for a while.
That 911 GT3 RS Lego kit, by the way, retails for $299, so you can probably expect to shell out even more for the Chiron. We’re guessing it’ll carry a price tag somewhere in the $375 to $400 range, but this is Bugatti we’re talking about so it could even go for more and people would buy it up like it’s going out of style. Speaking of going out of style, Motor1 reports that the GT3 RS Lego kit will be pulled off shelves at the end of 2018 as it heads into its peaceful retirement. That means unopened kits will increase in value and they’ll be harder to get by the turn of the year.
The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron Will Debut at a Special Event on June 1st!
You gotta love a highly detailed Lego kit, especially when the subject matter is one of the most insane, over-the-top four-wheeled machines on the planet. Now, it’s looking like that’s exactly what we’ll get in just a few weeks’ time, as Lego and Bugatti are gearing up to release the new Chiron Technic kit.

Step Up Your Lego Game With This Upcoming Bugatti Chiron Kit

Amalgam’s 1:8 Scale Model Replica Of The Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Is Its Sickest One Yet
$15,000 can buy a lot of things. You can split that money up and pay for a year’s worth of rent. You can indulge on something like the Tonino Lamborghini Alpha One smartphone and save the rest for a rainy day. You can even use all of it in one go and buy a Ford Fiesta. All those things are on the table, though you can also use your $15 grand on something far less useful, though still pretty awesome: a 1:8 scale model of the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse.
I’ve seen my fair share of immaculate supercar scale models, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never seen anything quite like Amalgam’s scale model of the Veyron Vitesse. The details of this scaled down Veyron Vitesse are incredible. All the little minutiae of the supercar’s design are accurately depicted to the extent that you’d be forgiven if you thought that it was an actual Veyron Vitesse that was shrunk down by some kind of shirking device that Amalgam has at its disposal. Jokes aside, the company did say that the scale model is completely hand-crafted using the original CAD data supplied by no less than Bugatti itself. The involvement of the French automaker is enough reason to understand why the accuracy of the details of the Veyron is absolutely stunning. Amalgam even said that it takes 310 hours to build one scale model, and that’s just one part of a development process that roughly takes 3,000 hours, the equivalent of 125 days! It’s no wonder that the whole thing costs $15,000, and even after talking about it, I still haven’t gone to the best part of the scale model.

This Is the Bugatti Chiron You Can Probably Afford
Unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Bugatti Chiron arrived as proof that the French firm is able to deliver a more extreme version of the record-breaking Veyron. Redesigned from the ground up inside and out and fitted with a more powerful version of the massive 8.0-liter W-16 engine, the Chiron is the new star of the supercar industry and the vehicle many enthusiasts dream about. Unfortunately, the Chiron is no Toyota Corolla and carries a sticker that most of us can’t afford. Unless you’re filthy rich, the best thing you can do right now is replace that huge Veyron poster on the wall with a Chiron print.
But if a piece of paper isn’t enough for you, here’s a Chiron you can probably afford. No, Bugatti isn’t planning to develop an entry-level supercar. The car I’m talking about comes in 1:18th (about 10 inches long) scale and is made of resin and plastic instead of carbon-fiber and aluminum. And while it’s significantly smaller than the real thing, it’s downright accurate as far as detailing goes and it can be had in no fewer than nine exterior colors.
The miniature Chiron is the creation of MR Models, a company that has reduced many exotics down to scale in recent years, including the Veyron, Ferrari LaFerrari, and Lamborghini Aventador.
The craftsmanship is remarkable and the model looks just like the real thing, but there are two downsides to MR Models miniatures. First, their resin construction doesn’t allow for opening features, meaning there’s no access to the engine bay or the cabin, which could feature some amazing details given the scale. Second, they’re not exactly cheap. Pricing for the Chiron isn’t yet available, but MR’s scale models usually fetch close to €400 (nearly $500 in the U.S.), unless you’re lucky enough to get a discount. Still, that’s really affordable compared to the real thing.
If the 1:18 scale is too small for you, the folks over at Amalgam have a 1:8th model for sale. This one has opening parts and far more impressive detailing, but it’s no longer on the affordable side of things. The 22-inch long miniature costs a whopping £7,940, which converts to around $10,400. That’s only $1,600 short of a Nissan Versa Sedan before options. Woof!

Can’t Afford a Bugatti Veyron? You Could Get These TMB Art Metal Cufflinks Instead
TMB Art Metal has done some awesome working in the past, offering keepsakes made from the metals of various cars. Different items have been made from vehicles like the Bugatti Type 35, Jaguar D-Type, the Spitfire, and even the Flying Scotsman train. More recently, the company created a series of poppy pins out of British shell fuses from the Somme battlefield to pay tribute to the soldiers killed during battle back in 1916. Now, TMB Art Metal is paying tribute to the Bugatti Veyron with a set of very special cufflinks made from the wheel of a Bugatti Veyron OZ Racing.
Most of the cufflinks are composed of the high-quality aluminum from the wheel of a Veyron OZ Racing in the design of the Veyron’s 12-spoke alloy wheels. The cufflinks are handcrafted and feature a silver rim and silver spokes. The wheels are crafted out of bronze to give a gold appearance, but can also be had in chrome black to offer a different, but equally gorgeous look. Every set of cufflinks from with a certificate of authenticity.
Christopher Bennett, the found of TMB Art Metal, said, “With the launch of the new Chiron, Bugatti has underlined its ability to make the greatest sports cars on the planet. These cuff links pay tribute to another of Bugatti’s glorious creations, and are a much more affordable way for owners and fans alike to carry a piece of the Veyron around with them.”
The cufflinks are priced at £295, or about $380, and can be purchased by contacting TMB Art Metal directly. All told, they look great and are sure to make any Bugatti enthusiast pretty happy.

American fashion mogul Ralph Lauren is coming back for seconds with a new luxury watch inspired by the iconic Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe. Back in 2010, Lauren and Bugatti collaborated to develop the Bugatti Sporting watch, an elegant timepiece that cost $13,200.
Recently, the man famous for having one of the most celebrated auto collections in the world is again paying tribute to one of his favorite vehicles with the launch of the Bugatti 57SC Atlantic Coupe Chronograph.
The interface of the two models bear a striking similarity to each other, specifically the elm burl wood that Lauren used to pay homage to his own Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe. The material is present in both watches, but the recently unveiled 57SC Atlantic Coupe Chronograph also features a tachymeter scale on the edge of the watch face and a black matte galvanic center that was also inspired by the classic Bugatti. The center of the Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe Chronograph is also busier than the Bugatti Sporting Watch.
Three small counters are located side by side with all three hands receiving shiny white varnish. The hands create a nice contrast to the large Arabic numbers that have been treated with beige SuperLuminova, which is responsible for illuminating an “afterglow," making it the numbers clearly visible in the dark. Notice also how the date stamp was smartly inserted inside one of the counters and located at 6 o’clock.
Underneath all that’s going on in the watch face is an "engine" developed exclusively by Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre. This engine comes with a mechanical self-winding motor that creates 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Take your eyes away from the face and check out the polished, round stainless steel case with the six exposed screws on the bezel and the black alligator strap that holds the whole thing together.

A Bugatti Veyron that’s priced at close to $2 million is an understandable amount given the level of luxury, performance, and technology put into the supercar. But a Bugattibelt that costs $84,000?
Seems like a tad too expensive, right?
Yet that’s exactly the amount Bugatti is charging for this fashion accessory. In fairness to Bugatti, the belt does come with some nifty technological workings, particularly the use of equipment normally reserved for Swiss matches as integral components of its mechanism. On top of that, it’s been finished in three different, albeit all expensive finishes: white gold, rose gold, and a still-to-be-determined third series run.
The belt also has smoked sapphire crystals and over 100 handcrafted parts made from stainless steel, solid gold, and titanium. Needless to say, a ton of work was done by Roland Iten to turn this belt into a true showcase piece of wealth and deep pockets.
There are only 44 units available, although at the cost of one, we doubt if these belts will sell like ice cream on a hot summer day.

You think you know everything about the Bugatti Veyron? Well, there’s a good chance that you don’t, because if you did, then you probably could have penned this new book about the almighty Veyron supercar.
Written by best-selling author, Martin Roach, the book, titled "A Quest for Perfection: The Story of the Greatest Car in the World" dives into the world of the mythical beast that is the Bugatti Veyron. According to Roach, the book ’traces the genesis of this machine through Bugatti’s long and glorious early days and then through it’s more turbulent modern era.”
Afzal Kahn, the man behind noted tuning company Project Kahn, was as part of the development of this book as Roach, clearly illustrating his fanatical obsession with the Veyron supercar. Together, the two managed to take a never-before-seen look into the world of Bugatti, one that includes unprecedented access to the key people behind the Veyron supercar, as well as trips to the top secret Bugatti Research & Development workshop in Germany, touring the factory and chateau in France where these stunning cars are hand-built.
The book is already available, and if you’re as interested as we are in reading the history of the Bugatti Veyron, then this book is a definite must-buy.
At the end of 2009, Parmigiani unveiled the Bugatti Tourbillon Watch inspired by the 16 C Galibier concept. This particular watch could be used as a wristwatch, a pocket watch, or could even be mounted on the dash of the owner’s Bugatti. Pretty classy, huh? Well, it seems that Parmigiani are at it again ,and this time they have unveiled a new watch inspired by the latest Veyron Super Sport. This doesn’t necessarily surprise us considering the Bugatti is a record-breaking machine that deserves a timepiece modeled after it, but they better get it produced soon as the sizzle might fizzle once the Koenigsegg Agera completes its task of breaking the Bugatti’s record.
But back to the timepiece. Parmigiani has played with the shape of this watch to make it as exclusive and daring as the Veyron SuperSport itself. The watch has a partially carbon fiber dial that has been placed perpendicular to the display axis with the use of a double pinion with bevel gearing system. This sytem setup allows for a 90 degree angle transfer of energy. This world premier technology allows the time to be displayed on the side of the timepiece.
In terms of aesthetic design, the train wheels are cut in the shape of car wheels and the plate and 10 bridges are designed and decorated in line with Parmigiani’s exclusive criteria as seen on the Calibre 370. The movement of the watch is displayed through six sapphire crystals. As for the hands, applique indexes, and counter; these components are displayed in the exact shade of orange picked out for the record-breaking SuperSport.
Press release after the jump.
That Bugatti Veyron 16.4 fashioned out off LEGO blocks is back in the news, and to our surprise, it actually is more than just an eye-pleasing toy car.
As it turns out, the LEGO Veyron is actually a remote-controlled car that comes with a bunch of other nifty features that we didn’t know at first, including a braking system, a 7+R sequential gearbox, and a retractable and spoiler.
It’s hard to believe that all of these features come with the LEGO Veyron but once you see the video, you’re going to realize that these features are in fact part of the car’s overall package.
We’re here to tell you now that you won’t see a car made out LEGO quite like this Bugatti Veyron. Makes you wish you had one of these to play around with in your street, right?
How’s this for ironic: Bugatti – you know them as the makers of one of the most mouth-watering cars in the world – has tapped the services of Ferrari to help them create one of the most expensive ballpoint pens you can imagine.
Ok, it’s not really what you think it is. While it’s true that Bugatti is set to come out with a pen that’s beyond expensive, it didn’t commission the Prancing Horse to make the pens for them but a company that conveniently goes by the name of Ferrari de Varese.
Designed by Luigi Trenti of the aforementioned Ferrari de Varese, the Bugatti Type A pen is not your ordinary ballpoint that you can just buy at any Barnes and Noble. First of all, it’s crafted from aluminum and plated with the following minerals: nickel, silver, palladium, and platinum. You guys keeping up?
In addition to that, the pen’s nib is made from rhodium-coated 18-karat gold that also comes with a sapphire glass window and a lacquered black embossed Bugatti logo.
With all these jewelry and expensive minerals, you can probably imagine how much this Bugatti pen is going to cost you. Let’s just say that for one of these babies, you can actually buy yourself a decent car. That’s right, folks. You’re going to have to shell out $15,000 just to get your hands on one.
The Volkswagen Group seems to be cashing in on the image of its premium brands. In September, Bentley came out with a line of luggage and computers, and now Bugatti is selling is name out to those who can’t afford the ultra-exclusive Veyron.
The range goes from a 2009 Veyron Calendar that can be yours for €90 (about $112 at current rates), to a €2,800 fragrance (about $3,500). Although the perfume may cost as much as a down-payment on a regular car, the "Prestige Edition" comes in 3D sculpture (Bugatti says its inspired by the wings of the Bugatti Atalante model — neato.) The container is coated with 24-carat gold and limited to 400 examples.
So if there’s a car lover on your Christmas list who’s severely bummed because the stock market has ruined his/her chances at a Veyron this year, take a look at Bugatti Collection. It might just have something overpriced with an "EB" logo on it that can provide some comfort.
