REVEALED: THE NEW LEGO® TECHNIC BUGATTI CHIRON

Where art, engineering and bricks combine

 

Billund, 1st of June 2018. LEGO Group and Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. have today revealed the new LEGO® Technic Bugatti Chiron. The 1:8 scale super car will be available from June 1.

 

The LEGO® Technic Bugatti Chiron model brings together the iconic design heritage of the French ultra-luxury car brand and LEGO Technic elements, with a reimagined version of the latest cutting-edge super car from Molsheim.

The new model was unveiled at LEGO House at the company’s headquarters in Billund by Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group, and Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann. The 1:8 scale LEGO® Technic Bugatti Chiron will be available from June 1, only at all LEGO® stores and shop.LEGO.com, then all retailers globally from August 1, 2018.

The model encapsulates the magic, power and elegance of the Chiron, unveiled to the world two years ago and now brought to life in LEGO Technic form, offering a unique, authentic building experience for car enthusiasts and LEGO fans of all ages.

Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group said: “I am very excited about this new model. 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, and an example that with LEGO Technic, you can build for real. It’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and design are truly fascinating.”

 Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.:“Thanks to their proven design and technology expertise, the LEGO Group and Bugatti are the epitomes of their brand segments. The LEGO Technic model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of this perfect relationship. I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports car has been translated into the LEGO world and I am sure that fans of both LEGO bricks and Bugatti will love this product.

The 1:8 scale LEGO® Technic Bugatti Chiron replica model – measuring over 5” (14cm) high, 22” (56cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide and featuring 3,599 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 movable 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 collectors 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.

 

Available from LEGO® stores and shop.LEGO.com from June 1

I was expecting the engine cover to open but it seems to be fixed shut though I'll put it on my "tomod" list.

I think this is the best technic set ever made. Some more mods I'd like to add are: red 4L center differential in gearbox.

add servo motor(s) to gearbox orange pieces so that when the servo turns left it moves the orange shifter into the left gear, when the servo turns left it moves the orange shifter into the left gear, and when the servo is centred it moves the orange shifter in between the two gears (i.e neutural).

a motor for drive and steering.

brick build trans red rear lights. Maybe with PF led's

wishful thinking:

A motor/motors for spoiler adjustment, doors, bonnet and engine cover.

looking forward to building it,

Regards Snipe

For a Technic set, I think it looks like a pretty solid build as far as exterior aesthetics go, and I do dig their color scheme choice of Earth Blue and Dark Azure! :thumbup:

It boggles my mind that there are stickers on a $350 kit. SMH

Well, it is debatable. I'd rather have stickers, than printed previously never released parts (read "cannot be reused"). But some parts should have been printed indeed.

It’s very simple; if TLG prints a part, it’s a new element. And they can’t store that many elements. So each set or theme has a limited number of printed parts, even UCS sets.

It has an exclusieve serial number. Anyone know how many are going to be produced? Want to get but would rather wait a bit... but don’t want to miss out

It is blue like the sea.  I will call it Chiron Greyjoy.  "What is dead may never die."
