Bugatti Chiron Lego Technic kit is amazingly detailed

Like the real Chiron, the Lego version is a complicated bit of kit. Or at least you can in parts - 3,599 parts to be precise.

The Lego Bugatti Chiron follows the success of the Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS model, which sold out in record time in 2016. All of these are existing LEGO components, save for the unique wheels, which closely mirror those of the real vehicle.

With more moving parts than a small city auto (probably), the Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron promises to eat up a whole lot of your spare time, but with a price tag of £329, we'd be disappointed if it didn't. The latter has a top speed setting, activated using a speed key - just like the real thing.

Another aspect of the LEGO Chiron that draws on the real-life auto is its W16-cylinder engine, complete with moving pistons. Best of all, though, you get the bragging rights to tell your mates you own a Bugatti Chiron - they don't need to know it's made out of Lego.

The Technic Bugatti Chiron is available from Lego stores and the company's website right now; a wider range of retailers will carry the new kit beginning August 1.

LEGO says each model will get a unique serial number to identify it.

"I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports auto has been translated into the Lego world and I am sure that fans of both Lego bricks and Bugatti will love this product", Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann said of the design. Well now, thanks to LEGO, you can.

The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron is available now for £330. It has 10 radiators, takes 2.5 seconds to go from 0-62mph, and can drain its 100-litre fuel tank in nine minutes at full chat.
