Lego Group and Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. have jointly revealed the new Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron. The new model was unveiled in Lego House at the company’s headquarters in Billund by Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the Lego Group, and Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann.
Bringing together the iconic design heritage of the French ultra-luxury car brand and Lego Technic elements, the Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron model is a reimagined version of the latest cutting-edge supercar from Molsheim.
The 1:8 scale Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron replica model – measuring over 14cm high, 56cm long and 25cm wide, and featuring 3599 pieces – is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches. These include aerodynamic bodywork with an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, detailed cockpit with moveable paddle gearshift, and detailed W16 engine with moving pistons.
Open the doors and you’ll discover that there’s more to the cockpit than first meets the eye, featuring a Lego Technic 8-speed gearbox with paddle gearshift and a steering wheel bearing the iconic Bugatti emblem.
Each individual model comes personalised with its own unique serial number, carefully stored under the hood to unlock special content on Lego.com/technic. The set also features a speed key which enables you to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position.
Hidden discreetly under the hood, you will also discover an additional authentic Bugatti Chiron detail – the stylish Bugatti overnight bag.
Staying true to Bugatti’s heritage, the model features the classic duo-tone blue color scheme reflecting the brand’s signature colour, and a set of identifiable stickers for additional detailing and authenticity of the build.
Delivering a final “artistic” touch, the set comes enclosed in an exclusive box and includes a “coffee table”-style collector’s booklet with comprehensive building instructions. Fans can also dive deep into the inspiration behind the design with series of nine exclusive podcasts featuring Bugatti and Lego experts.
The Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron is retailing at S$599.90, with a limited number of the models available at Lego Certified Stores islandwide and online stores Bricks World and The Brick Shop, while stocks last.
