IT’S ALL ABOUT THE NUMBERS
It’s not that factors such as the aesthetics or handling prowess of the Bugatti
Chiron are insignificant, but they play on the non-existent back seat of the French-German hypercar compared to its quotable facts. Instead, the Chiron lives in a dimension of data such as zero to hold-on-to-your-face times, and rumoured top speed claims from intrepid speed hunters. Now though, Lego has decided to build on the legend of the Chiron by creating a version that is not restricted to the 500-vehicle limit. The Lego Bugatti consists of 3,599 pieces and features everything from functional doors and hinges to a moving W16 engine and eight-speed gearbox. Priced at R5,500, anyone can now own a Chiron — albeit one they must build themselves.
