But what makes this truly special is it's entirely powered by 2,304 LEGO Power Function motors and 4,032 Technic gear wheels, and can generate 5.3 horse power and roughly 92 Nm of torque. While the real Bugatti Chiron produces 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, the engine of Lego's 1.5-tonne auto generates 5.3 horsepower and an estimated 67 lb-ft of torque.
Said and done: the LEGO Bugatti Cheron has been unveiled in Italy, ahead of the Monza Grand Prix. The bodywork of the Chiron has been made out of a complex skin of Technics pieces, while even the Bugatti's airbrake is made out of lego - it's not as efficient as the real one's though.
Everyone knows with the right pieces and a lot of patience, you can build just about anything out of LEGO bricks.
According to Tech Crunch, the whole vehicle is not entirely LEGO (obviously), "there's a steel frame, a pair of batteries, some 3d printed gears, and the whole thing sits on top of actual Bugatti wheels", it says. The replica consisted of almost all Lego elements and even has the same pop-up rear spoiler, which ran on Power Function motors and pneumatics.
LEGO made several firsts for this build. But now, a team of ingenious and talented designers and engineers have gone above the call of duty, creating a full-size replica of the Chiron, made nearly entirely from LEGO Technic parts. Not only does it look like the real thing, you can actually drive it.
What mode of transportation should LEGO try to build next? He took it to the Ehra Lessien track in Germany, where he managed to reach top speeds of 12.5mph with it. Former Le Mans victor Andy Wallace took the model up to about 12 miles per hour, using the most of the model's 5.3 horsepower and 68 pound-feet of torque. 'In fact, from about 20 metres away it's not obvious that you are looking at a Lego vehicle.
