Someone Seriously Built a Functional Version of the Ford Falcon's 4.0-liter Inline-Six

Someone Seriously Built a Functional Version of the Ford Falcon’s 4.0-liter Inline-Six

It works as it should with painstaking attention to detail

People are building anything from Lego, quite literally. The creation we’re discussing today isn’t as groundbreaking as that full-scale running and driving Bugatti Chiron, but it’s still amazing: a fully-functioning Ford Falcon engine.

This here isn’t just a scale reproduction of the inline-6 4.0-liter engine that powers some Australian Ford Falcons made out of Lego parts. No, this is a recreation that actually works, mated to a Lego ZF 6-speed gearbox.

Shut up and take my money!

Keeping kids happily busy since 1949, LEGO has evolved from a company that builds plastic construction toys into one that makes complex models with technical functions through its Technic division.

Replica Motorsport Has The Coolest Mini Lego Engines Ever

They cost $35, but they’re cool enough to spend money on them

Man’s fascination with Lego stems from the insatiable need to build things. Whether it’s a small Lego kit or a 3,599-piece Bugatti Chiron, the act and subsequent gratification that comes from building Lego kits is a big reason the toy line remains as successful as it is today. Some people, like Instagram user Replica Motorsport, even make businesses out of the kits they build. Replica Motorsport’s Lego gig involves recreating some of the auto world’s most beloved engines in miniaturized sizes and then selling them to those interested enough in trying to recreate the build. It’s not something casual Lego builders would be interested in, but for the auto-obsessed lot out there, and there are many, these small engine kits are the perfect embodiment of your Lego fandom.

The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron is So Precisely Detailed that the W-16 Engine Even Has Moving Pistons

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 Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron Box Leaks Just Hours After Its June 1st Debut was Announced

The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron Box Leaks Just Hours After Its June 1st Debut was Announced

That didn’t take long...

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.

They say that advertisements have the power to make or break a brand.
