Made of more than one million elements, the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron took 13,438 hours to construct by a team of 16 specialists and not a single drop of glue was used.

This super car is a testament that with LEGO Technic you can build for real. Seen from a distance side by side, the resemblance of the two cars is striking. Peek inside and discover that every single detail of the original car has been carefully and precisely recreated in LEGO Technic elements – from seats, to dashboard, to steering wheel.

“This life-size model is a first of its kind in so many ways and with it, we wanted to push the boundaries of our own imagination. For more than 40 years, LEGO Technic has allowed builders to use their creativity in a way that challenges them to build beyond the design and engineer new functions,” said Lubor Zelinka, Design Manager, LEGO® Retail Model Production.
