Lego Group and Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. have revealed the new Lego® Technic™ Bugatti Chiron. The 1:8 scale supercar model brings together the iconic design heritage of the ultra-luxury car brand and Lego Technic™ elements, with a reimagined version of the latest cutting-edge supercar. The new model was unveiled at Lego House and is now available from at all Lego stores and online, and all retailers globally from August 1, 2018.
The model encapsulates the magic, power and elegance of the Chiron, unveiled to the world two years ago and now brought to life in Lego Technic form, offering a unique, authentic building experience for car enthusiasts and Lego fans of all ages.
The 1:8 scale Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron replica model – measuring over 5” (14cm) high, 22” (56cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide and featuring 3,599 pieces – is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches. These include aerodynamic bodywork with an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, detailed cockpit with movable paddle gearshift, and detailed W16 engine with moving pistons.
Open the doors and you’ll discover that there’s more to the cockpit than first meets the eye, featuring a LEGO Technic™ 8-speed gearbox with paddle gearshift and a steering wheel bearing the iconic Bugatti emblem.
Each individual model comes personalized with its own unique serial number, carefully stored under the hood to unlock special content online. The set also features a speed key which enables you to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position.
Hidden discreetly under the hood, you will also discover an additional authentic Bugatti Chiron detail – the stylish Bugatti overnight bag. Staying true to Bugatti’s heritage, the model features the classic duo-tone blue color scheme reflecting the brand’s signature color, and a set of identifiable stickers for additional detailing and authenticity of the build.
Delivering a final artistic touch, the set comes enclosed in an exclusive box and includes a coffee table style collectors’ booklet with comprehensive building instructions.
