At the recent Grand Prix Formula One event in Monza, Italy, Lego unveiled a functioning stylish recreation of the sports car that looks similar to the original super car from Bugatti.

The wholesome toy company teamed up with the automaker to create a life-size model using more than 1 million Lego Technic pieces.

This Bugatti Chiron model is not only life size, but is also drivable

It is the first large-scale movable construction developed and powered entirely by Lego motors. To build this full-sized Lego Chiron, it took over 13,000 work hours. The full-sized model is packed with more than 2,300 Lego motors and over 4,000 gear wheels.

Although drivable, but it can’t meet the real Bugatti’s 1,500 horsepower

Lego Chiron has enough space for a driver and passenger to sit in comfortably. Lego Chiron is powered by two batteries, 80-volt for the motor and 12-volt for the steering. It even has a working brake pedal and speedometer that shows how fast it’s going.

It has 5.3 horsepower and 67.8 pound-feet of torque, compared to 1,500 hp and 1,180 lb-ft in its life-sized big brother.

Functioning Lego version is comparatively light on the pocket

This life-sized Lego version of Bugatti Chiron cost only $350 in comparison to the real Bugatti Chiron which will set you back $3 million.
