You can take a look at the LEGO Technic Bugatti in action the video above.

The intricate details include aerodynamic bodywork in Bugatti's signature two-tone blue livery, an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, working suspension and detailed disc brakes, and a W16 engine with moving pistons. You even get a key, which cannot only switch the active rear wing from "handling" to "top speed" position, but also unlocks the hood to reveal a serial number that's unique to each model.

Many countries around the world are celebrating Children's Day on June 1 hence why it makes flawless sense that Bugatti and Lego have chose to pick this date to unveil a shiny new Lego Technic set for the mighty Chiron. The price is steeper as well, as the set is listed on LEGO's website at $349,99.

That hints at the complexity beneath, and Lego's Chiron faithfully recreates the engineering that propels the life-size version to a limited 430kph. It truly stands as testament that with LEGO bricks you can build anything you can imagine, and an example that with LEGO Technic™, you can build for real.

Serena fights back to down Barty in second round
However, the 36-year-old rallied, breaking twice in the second set and then once in the third to win in one hour and 48 minutes. Third-seeded Garbine Muguruza of Spain has crushed Samantha Stosur 6-0, 6-2 to advance to the fourth round of the French Open .


We're talking 3,599 pieces, constructing a model measuring 14cm tall, 56cm long and 25cm wide, making it 1:8th scale. Rotating the driveshaft causes all 16 pistons to move in unison, driven through an eight-speed gearbox with movable paddle shifters. Well now, thanks to LEGO, you can. "I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports vehicle has been translated into the Lego world".

The model, available at Lego stores on June 1, 2018, will come packaged with a "coffee table" style collectors booklet that is home to all of the building instructions.

The real Bugatti Chiron is powered by a W16-cylinder 8.0-litre quad-turbo engine, producing 1,479bhp and returning 12.6mpg.
