Is this why LEGO delayed the retirement of 42083 Bugatti Chiron?

Rumours suggest that a huge LEGO Technic car has been delayed, potentially explaining why 42083 Bugatti Chiron’s retirement was pushed back.

StoneWars is reporting that the release date of a new LEGO Technic supercar recreation, with the set number 42143, has been moved to 2023 after a listing for a model under the same number was spotted at retailer electricBricks. Information suggested that the build could be made up of 3,776 parts.

Despite the store listing 42143 as launching later this year, the site claims that this is based on old information and that the rumoured Technic set won’t be released until some time next year. That might leave a gap in the LEGO Technic release calendar for 2022, though that space may have already been filled.

As reported in our full list of retiring LEGO sets for 2022, 42083 Bugatti Chiron’s planned retirement at the end of 2021 has been moved to the end of 2022. This means that should the rumours of 42123’s delayed release date be accurate, there can still be a selection of LEGO Technic supercars on shelves in the interim, with 42115 Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 also available.


As usual, these rumours have not been officially confirmed by the LEGO Group and should be treated with a suitable level of caution until an announcement is made.
