In what could just be the coolest and wildest thing anyone has ever done with Lego, the company has built a full-size, drivable model of the $3,000,000 Bugatti Chiron. Built partly as a passion project amongst Lego’s creative team and partly as a promo to show off at the Italian Grand Prix, over a million pieces of Lego Technic went into the making of the life-size Bugatti.
The car weighs 3,306lbs (1,500kg) and took about 13,400 man-hours to build!
Even the powertrain is made from Lego: 2,304 of the little electric motors to be precise
The LEGO ‘toy’ car rocks 5.3 horsepower under its hood and has a top speed of 18mph
It even has a working brake pedal and speedometer that shows how fast it’s going! Its electronics, including the lights, are powered by two batteries.
Bugatti’s official test driver and former Le Mans winner, Andy Wallace, took the car for its first drive
