This Life-size LEGO Bugatti Chiron Looks Incredible, and Really Can Drive

A fully-functioning car has been built out of LEGO, and yes, you read that correctly

LEGO has created a life-sized, fully functioning Chiron model using 1 million LEGO Technic pieces.

Said and done: the LEGO Bugatti Cheron has been unveiled in Italy, ahead of the Monza Grand Prix.

Yes, the Bugatti Chiron seen here is made entirely from Lego and Lego Technic pieces to recreate the supercar in stunning detail.

Lego constructed the Chiron using more than one million individual pieces of 339 different types, 58 of which were custom-cast for this model, including pieces never before cast in transparent plastic. The team set out with the idea that 90 percent of the vehicle had to be built with Lego parts.

Donald Trump terminating NAFTA, negotiating with Canada
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stressed in a phone call with Trump that the aim is to reach a new NAFTA deal. She was scheduled to meet later Tuesday with her Mexican counterpart, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo.

"Our Technic designers and the engineers from the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic have done an incredible job both at recreating the Chiron's iconic shapes and making it possible to drive this model". Compared with the real Chiron's four-wheel-drive system, Lego Chiron's engines only put out power through the rear wheels. A total of 339 different sorts of Lego pieces were used, and designers actually had to develop a flexible, triangular "skin" that could bend to simulate the curves on the real auto. LEGO, you have truly outdone yourselves with this build.

LEGO made several firsts for this build.

He added that driving the LEGO Chiron was "a great experience" and that he never thought that the day would come when he would drive a LEGO auto.

At full clip, Lego estimates a top speed of about 19 miles per hour, which is pretty good for a 3,300-pound hunk of plastic and steel running on air and electricity. Former racing driver Andy Wallace was the lucky person who got behind the wheel to take it for a test drive around the Ehra Lessien proving ground in Germany. From afar, the cars look eerily similar, perhaps only the "skin" structure of the Lego Technic pieces gives the Lego Chiron away.
