Now there's a Lego Technics Bugatti Chiron!
It's more than half a metre long, has moving pistons in the W16 engine, and an eight-speed paddle-shift gearbox. And look who it was unveiled by...
The Lego range just keeps on getting better! None other than Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann has unveiled the latest Lego Technic car model, the 1:8 scale Bugatti Chiron. Brilliant!
It measures over 5in (14cm) high, 22in (56cm) long and 9in (25cm) wide and features 3599 pieces – including an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tyres and W16 engine with moving pistons. Open the doors and there's a paddle shift operating the Lego Technic eight-speed gearbox.

Each model comes with its own serial number, which unlocks special content on lego.com/technic. The set also features a speed key that allows the active rear wing to move from handling to top speed position. There's even a Bugatti overnight bag inside, too.
The set includes a collectors' booklet with comprehensive building instructions. Fans can also dive deep into the inspiration behind the design with a series of nine exclusive podcasts featuring Bugatti and Lego experts.
It was revealed at Lego House at the company’s HQ in Billund, Denmark, by Niels B Christiansen, CEO of the Lego Group, along with Stephan Winkelmann.
'Thanks to their proven design and technology expertise, the Lego Group and Bugatti are the epitomes of their brand segments,' said Winkelmann.
'The Lego Technic™ model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of a perfect relationship. I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports car has been translated into the Lego world, and I am sure that fans of both Lego bricks and Bugatti will love this product.'
Lego's Niels B Christiansen said: 'I am very excited about this new model. Our Lego designers have done an amazing job capturing the details of this iconic Bugatti design. 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. It’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and design are truly fascinating.'
It's available from 1 June at Lego stores and shop.lego.com, then all retailers globally from 1 August 2018. The price is £329.99 in the UK, $349.99 in the USA – and if that's too steep, check out this version at £12.99 (or $14.99)!
