Bugatti Chiron Gets Lego Makeover With Amazing 3,599-Piece Kit

The closest most of us will get to owning the real thing


Bottom line

With a price tag of around $2.5 million, it’s a fair assumption that most of us are never going to own a Bugatti Chiron hyper car. But thanks to Lego, you can now buy a much cheaper and smaller version (precisely at $349.99) of the real thing, which comes with a massive 3599 pieces.

Bugatti sports cars and LEGO® building bricks may seem like two very different things, but they share a common design feature: to be the very best. When the opportunity for collaboration became possible, both teams worked passionately and precisely to perfect the ultimate supercar model: LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron. And here they are now. Lego CEO Niels B. Christiansen and Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann revealing the new kit at Lego House in Billund.

Christiansen reckons,


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… it’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself”.

When Christiansen says huge, he means it. The Chiron model is 560mm long, 250mm wide and 140mm tall…

The Essential Marriage Process

The climax for Bugatti when assembling a Chiron? Connecting the monocoque shell structure to the vehicle’s rear end. This crucial process is mimicked when building the Technic version of the car, giving a real-life construction experience.

The Wheel Deal

The attention to detail is wonderful. Lego has engineered an impressively convincing replica of the Chiron’s aerodynamic bodywork, including spoked rims with low-profile tyres.

The Inside Look

The dashboard, speedometer, iconic centre line, and flat-bottom steering wheel are just a few of the interior details that speak to the luxury and craftsmanship of the real Bugatti Chiron. The car’s curvaceous seats are also realistically recreated, through a series of panel, beam, and tile elements.

I’ve Got The Key And Flappy Paddles Included

The rear wing is a moveable active spoiler and – brilliantly – the kit includes a ‘speed key’ that lets model-makers twitch the position of the rear wing from the handling position to its more streamlined top speed setting.

It features 16 cylinders – each one fully moveable thanks to two crankshafts. The gearbox is equally as complex, with 8 fully functioning gears.

A Bag For Life (I doubt you might need it………)
