Life-Size Lego Bugatti Chiron Joins The Real Thing At VW Car Museum

Bugatti has brought a life-size Lego-made Chiron and the real hypercar together in an exhibition at the Zeithaus Museum in Wolfsburg, Germany.

The 1:1 model made from over 1 million Lego bricks, including the 2,304 that form the engine, will be on display alongside the real Chiron until December 6.

With a total weight of 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs), the Lego Technic Chiron boasts only 5.3 PS (5.2 hp / 3.9 kW) and 92 Nm (68 lb-ft) of torque and has a top speed of 20 km/h (12.4 mph). The project, which was also displayed at the 2018 Paris Auto Show, took over 13,000 man-hours to complete and is a true masterpiece.

“The Lego Group has proved to be an ideal partner for Bugatti. It was only with the same striving for perfection that our engineers demonstrate every day that Lego bricks could succeed in bringing such a premise, refined masterpiece onto the road”, commented Bugatti’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann. “With the 1:8 Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron model and this drivable full-size model, the childhood dreams of many people will have come true.”

Unlike the Lego full-scale model, the real Chiron uses a quad-turbo 8.0-liter W16 engine that produces 1,500 PS (1,479 hp / 1,103 kW) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque. Under full acceleration, it hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 2.5 seconds. Top speed is still undisclosed, but it exceeds 400 km/h (249 mph).
