Full size, working LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron arrives at the Paris Motor Show

The full size, working LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is on display at the Paris Motor Show.

It is time for the Paris Motor Show 2018, with the even kicking off tomorrow. At the show, CarScoops reports that attendees will be able to view a marvel of LEGO engineering – the full size, drivable Technic Bugatti Chiron.

The mind-blowing build was unveiled one month ago, with over 1 million LEGO Technic elements, including 2,304 Power Functions motors used to put the marvel together. 90% of the car is made up of LEGO elements, which can actually drive. It can reach speeds of just over 20km/h, much more sedate speed than the actual Bugatti Chiron’s 420km/h.

This special one-off project came together to celebrate the launch of the much smaller, but still impressive, LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron set.

Former racing driver Andy Wallace was the lucky person who got behind the wheel to take it for a test drive around the Ehra Lessien proving ground in Germany back in August.

“Driving the LEGO Chiron was a great experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed,” he said at the time. “All those years ago I could never have imagined that one day I would actually drive a LEGO car!”

LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron is available now at shop.LEGO.com.
