The senior Vice president of Product and Marketing at LEGO group stated that: “This life-size model is a first of its kind in so many ways and with it, we wanted to push the boundaries of our own imagination. For over 40 years, LEGO Technic has allowed fans of all ages to test their creativity with a building system that challenges them to go beyond just creating new designs, to also engineering new functions.”
A gripping feat of design and engineering
When you look closer at the “reptilian”and complex exterior of the car, you find an interconnected web of triangular “blocks” or segments that are made into a LEGO “technic” pattern to mimic the designs of the original Chiron. Having a peek inside confirms the astonishing suspicion that every single detail of the car from steering wheel to dashboard has been precisely fitted and laden with LEGO technic elements!
The model is built with a speedometer, front and back lights, rear spoiler, a brake pedal and a detachable steering wheel and is a dream come true for any LEGO fan! 339 types of LEGO elements were used to build this work of art along with 13,000 hours of construction and development.
Bugatti’s Chiron is the ultimate sports car that maybe designed for maximum speed but also meets the demands of comfort, luxury and durability. The Chiron combines all of these elements to give the world a complete sportscar! And now with a Bugatti Showroom in Dubai, you can go for a Bugatti car for sale!
