What Is the Most Creative Use for LEGO Bricks?

As one of the world's fastest and most famous supercars, the Bugatti Chiron needs little introduction. Capable of reaching 261 mph (420 km/h), the sports car has a price tag of nearly $3 million USD. But perhaps just as impressive is a certain Bugatti Chiron model with a top speed of 12 mph (20 km/h). That's because this supercar is made almost entirely out of LEGO pieces. The LEGO version is life-size and closely resembles the real Bugatti Chiron. Made out of more than a million bricks, the LEGO Bugatti Chiron uses over 2,300 LEGO power function motors and 4,000 gear wheels. The team that constructed the model used exclusively LEGO Technic pieces, with the exception of the steel frame, wheels, braking system, power steering, and a few other elements. After a test drive in June, the LEGO Bugatti Chiron was unveiled to the public at Formula One's Italian Grand Prix event in August 2018.

Brick by brick:

  • It took the Czech Republic-based team nearly 13,500 man-hours to complete the project. Many of those involved had previously created constructions for Legoland.
  • The engineers built specialized tools out of LEGO Technic elements to help construct the car -- and they didn't use any glue. The finished vehicle weighs 3,300 lbs (1,500 kg).
  • The Bugatti Chiron is LEGO Technic's annual sports car for 2018. The model kit hit stores in June, allowing enthusiasts to create their own 1:8 scale supercar out of 3,600 pieces.
