After appearing in France, the UK, the USA and many other locations around the world, the full sized, working LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron will be right at home today when it arrives in LEGO Square. At 1.00pm, car enthusiast Christian Grau will interview both those who got the idea for the car and the skilled LEGO builders from the Czech Republic who hand-built it. This will be followed by a LEGO car build competition, with prizes up for grabs.
Once it has been unveiled at the event, the car will remian on display until June 10 for visitors to admire.
Last August, the LEGO Group unveiled the first ever full sized drivable LEGO car, to the astonishment of fans around the world. It is an upscaled version of the popular 42083 Bugatti Chiron set. It uses over 1 million LEGO Technic elements, is powered by 2,304 Power Functions motors, and weighs in at 1,500kg. The car, made up of 90% LEGO pieces, can drive at speeds of 20 km per hour.
