Size Bugatti Chiron made from a million Legos ... and it actually drives

Size Bugatti Chiron made from a million Legos ... and it actually drives

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. It represents the first fully-functional self-propelled life-size Lego Technic, as well as the first non-glued Lego Technic model of such complexity.

Is this the most impressive LEGO creation you've ever seen?

After the build was complete LEGO took its Chiron to the same track where Bugatti tests and sent the auto off.

It tops out at just 12 miles per hour, and its motors generate a total of 5.3 horsepower, a far cry from the 1,479 horses that an actual Chiron makes, but I don't care. There is even a speedometer in the vehicle and a rear spoiler made with pieces to give it a more realistic look and functioning. That's easy for us to say, but LEGO cars don't grow on trees. Most of the functions of the real Chiron can also be found on the Lego model such as a moving rear spoiler, headlights and taillights - all of which are made from Lego pieces.

Serena Williams Kills The US Open In A Tutu After Catsuit Ban
Friday's match will be the earliest the sisters have met at a Slam since the 1998 Australian Open in what was also their first ever clash.

To get the vehicle moving it's powered by 2,304 Power Functions motors - the same kind you can get in many regular Lego sets - that use 4,032 Technic gears.

The auto can even drive at speeds up to 20 km/h. However, it seems Lego has severely escalated the situation; now it's made a life-size Chiron out of building blocks, and you can actually drive it.

"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.

There aren't any plans for this Bugatti to go into production, but in theory you could walk into one of the Danish firm's stores and buy the pieces to build one for yourself. "I can only imagine how much time and effort went into making this model".
