Everything with a Bugatti badge must exude excellence, and this Lego Technic kit is no exception

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 new Technic Chiron comes with 3,599 pieces that will probably keep you busy for hours

First off, let me point out that the new Technic Chiron comes with 3,599 pieces that will probably keep you busy for hours. The design is as authentic as it gets, all of the way down to the oval grille design, front splitter, and Bugatti emblem on the wheels. Even the headlights are fashioned out of four clear, cube Legos to match the design of the real thing. Featuring the traditional light and dark blue, bi-colored scheme outside, the Technic Chiron measures out to be five-inches tall, 22-inches long, and 9-inches wide, making it exactly a 1:8 scale model. Even the brake discs on this thing detailed.

Inside, you’ll find the eight-speed gearbox with movable power shifters and the Bugatti-branded steering wheel. It also features that traditional tan interior color and the tri-pod instrument cluster. There’s even a makeshift center stake the imitates the infotainment system of the real Chiron. Each model set comes complete a colored collector’s booklet, building instructions, stickers for additional detailing, a unique serial number under the hood and there’s even a Bugatti overnight back inside the storage compartment up front.

The W-16 engine has the moving pistons but look at the detail of the suspension, the brake rotors, the engine’s belt system, and the subframe that connects the two halves together

If the detail you see outside and inside doesn’t get you going, just take a look at the chassis and driveline setup. This this is so detailed that it looks overly complex, to say the least. Of course, the W-16 engine has the moving pistons but look at the detail of the suspension, the brake rotors, the engine’s belt system, and the subframe that connects the two halves together. It almost looks like it’s harder to build than a real Bugatti.

Unfortunately, we haven’t had the chance to get our hands on one yet, but we would sure love to put one together to see all of it first-hand. This Lego kit is the definition of a car guy’s dream, and even with a price of $349.99, it’s well worth it and will likely become a collector’s piece one day. The only thing you have to do is figure out whether you want to open it up and build it or leave it in the box to grow in value.

LEGO Group and Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. have today revealed the new LEGO® Technic™ Bugatti Chiron. The 1:8 scale super car will be available from June 1. The LEGO® Technic™ Bugatti Chiron model brings together the iconic design heritage of the French ultra-luxury car brand and LEGO Technic™ elements, with a reimagined version of the latest cutting-edge super car from Molsheim.

The new model was unveiled at LEGO House at the company’s headquarters in Billund by Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group, and Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann. The 1:8 scale LEGO® Technic™ Bugatti Chiron will be available from June 1, only at all LEGO® stores and shop.LEGO.com, then all retailers globally from August 1, 2018. The model encapsulates the magic, power and elegance of the Chiron1, unveiled to the world two years ago and now brought to life in LEGO Technic™ form, offering a unique, authentic building experience for car enthusiasts and LEGO fans of all ages.

Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group said: “I am very excited about this new model. Our LEGO designers have done an amazing job capturing the details of this iconic Bugatti design. It truly stands as testament that with LEGO bricks you can build anything you can imagine, and an example that with LEGO Technic™, you can build for real. It’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and design are truly fascinating.”

Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., said: “Thanks to their proven design and technology expertise, the LEGO Group and Bugatti are the epitomes of their brand segments. The LEGO Technic™ model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of a perfect relationship. I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports car has been translated into the LEGO world and I am sure that fans of both LEGO bricks and Bugatti will love this product.” The 1:8 scale LEGO® Technic™ Bugatti Chiron replica model – measuring over 5” (14cm) high, 22” (56cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide and featuring 3,599 pieces – is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches. These include aerodynamic bodywork with an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, detailed cockpit with movable paddle gearshift, and detailed W16 engine with moving pistons.

Open the doors and you’ll discover that there’s more to the cockpit than first meets the eye, featuring a LEGO Technic™ 8-speed gearbox with paddle gearshift and a steering wheel bearing the iconic Bugatti emblem.

Each individual model comes personalised with its own unique serial number, carefully stored under the hood to unlock special content on LEGO.com/technic. The set also features a speed key which enables you to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position.
Hidden discreetly under the hood, you will also discover an additional authentic Bugatti Chiron detail – the stylish Bugatti overnight bag.

Staying true to Bugatti’s heritage, the model features the classic duo-tone blue color scheme reflecting the brand’s signature colour, and a set of identifiable stickers for additional detailing and authenticity of the build.

Delivering a final ’artistic’ touch, the set comes enclosed in an exclusive box and includes a ’coffee table’ style collectors booklet with comprehensive building instructions. Fans can also dive deep into the inspiration behind the design with series of nine exclusive podcasts featuring Bugatti and LEGO experts.
