Italian high-performance automaker Bugatti is known for its lightning-fast, hand-built supercars. While the construction of a Bugatti is as remote as it is for many, such a model has resumed the imagination of humans. Lego, the iconic toy manufacturer, has built a blue Bugatti Chiron entirely out of Lego bricks! And it can be driven!
The toy company that recently introduced the replica created the car with more than a million Lego Technic elements, with a fully functional engine that can reach speeds in excess of 20 km / h! In comparison, the real Bugatti Chiron has built about 20 people in six months with 1,800 parts! The mammoth task of making it look like the original vehicle in terms of design and technology took more than 13,000 hours.
And the best? The car generates around 5.3 horsepower, weighs 1.5 tonnes and is powered exclusively by 2,304 engines and 4,032 LEGO Technic gears, reports Inc.com.
Now that the video has been shared online by the company, fans went ballistic to see it slipping on the road.
Unfortunately, the company does not plan to do it for its customers, as the printed manuals alone would undoubtedly cost hundreds of dollars for shipping, Gizmodo said. So, if you love that, there is a smaller version of the car that can be made with nearly 4,000 blocks.
And even for the test drive, the company hired a former racing driver! Andy Wallace, a former racing driver with multiple wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Daytona, was overwhelmed with the details of the car, the Lego website said.
"Driving the LEGO Chiron was a great experience that I enjoyed very much, and many years ago I never imagined that one day I would actually drive a LEGO car!"
