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

339 different Technic elements were used to make the auto as accurate as possible.

The vehicle contains over a million pieces of Lego Technic, with 2,304 motors and 4,302 gear wheels. Over 1 million individual LEGO components went into the build, including over 2,300 individual LEGO Power Functions motors, ganged together to produce enough power to move this 3,300 pound replica.

The Master Builders of LEGO really took their skills to a new level when they used LEGO Technics elements to build a full-scale Bugatti Chiron that can actually drive! Outside of the chassis, wheels and tires, everything else is pretty much Lego from the A-pillars, to the seats, to the extendable rear wing - even the functional speedometer. The $349 toy measured 22 inches long and consisted of almost 3,600 individual pieces but it pales in comparison to Lego's latest creation - a life-size drivable Chiron built with over a million Technic pieces.

It will be showcased at this weekend's Formula One Italian Grand Prix at Monza. This is also the first-time load-bearing parts were built purely out of LEGO. "Driving the LEGO Chiron was a great experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed". Lego has equipped it with a self-made motor that generates 5.3 horsepower and gives it a top speed of 20Kmph.

"When I first saw the LEGO Chiron, I was immediately impressed by the accuracy of the model and the minute attention to detail", Wallace said.

LEGO has put it to the test with none other than the official Bugatti pilot who oversaw the development of the real Chiron - Le Mans and Daytona victor Andy Wallace. With professional racer Andy Wallace behind the wheel, the Lego Chiron clocked a top speed over 12.4 miles per hour at the Ehra Lessien proving ground in Germany sitting on real Chiron wheels and tires.
