Lego unveils functional Bugatti with a million technic block

 1,000,000 LEGO technic elements and is actually drivable thanks to its 2,304 LEGO power function motors and 4,032.  The idea to build a real-size 1:1 Technic version of the Bugatti Chiron originated within the LEGO Technic design team.

Designer Aurelien Rouffiange and the team had just completed the 1:8 scale model of the Chiron and began to debate what the ultimate challenge for the LEGO Technic building system would be. A full-size, self-propelled vehicle seemed to provide the toughest test.

These LEGO designers specialize in creating complex models for LEGO stores and LEGOLAND parks around the world. If anyone could make this idea a reality, it was them. They quickly put together a core team of 16 specialists, including design, mechanical and electrical experts, and used over 13,000 man hours creating the car piece by piece.

Th project took months of development and testing came to a head in June on the Ehra Lessien test track outside Wolfsburg, Germany – the same track where the original Bugatti Chiron was tested – when we found out if the car would actually drive.
