    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    True indeed, but it is also true that the front end is quite flimsy in itself

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Nearly finished mine as there was a missing liftarm (2 x 4 L-Shape Thick in Dark Blue) and Lego don't seem to have any stock...and since 42083 is the first set it appears in, I'm doomed :-) Other than that, the build is really enjoyable, the gearbox works great, the engine is as expected : massive...and not too complicated. There are a lot of clever solutions but it really misse 1/ a piece 2/ a central diff 3/ stiffer springs 4/ more printed pieces :-) Other than that, for those living in France, my copy is on display at Joué Club Chauray (79).

    Black rims are for common people, not for the one able to afford such a car :-)

    @agrof Regarding the rims and the overall color scheme of the car, it is the presentation livery of the Bugatti Chiron back in Geneva 2016 ;-)

    @Saberwing40k in PvdB's Koenigsegg the dashboard shifters add quite a lot of complexity and are not all that reliable ;-)

    Paddles on the Chiron are actually pretty small and are attached to the streering wheel whereas in the Porsche, they are immediately obvious... Furthermore : the Chiron is all about absolute power and absolute luxury whereas the GT3 RS is supposed to be a very spartan car lego technic human actuated paddles do require quite a bit of a leverage (or travel) to work properly, so I don't think it would have been possible to have both paddles and a nice cockpit...PvdB's Koenigsegg One:1 has small paddles, but they are definitely not intended for humans :-)

    According to Anio on TechLug, it has a sequential gearbox with a lot of gears :-)

    [MOC] Koenigsegg One:1

    I don't think that car was ever produced in red but that would sure be a nice one :-) Someone wanted to buy mine...but when I mentionned the price...all of a sudden that person was not interested in buying it anymore xD
  11. The overall build experience is far less enjoyable than the "modular" approach used on the arocs in my opinion. Mecanically, though it has no (spring) suspension nor a complicated crane, it is still very mecanically enjoyable :-)
  12. Got one at a (closing) local toy shop for 185€ which seems fair given the complexity of the gearbox, the tyres and the power functions :-) (and as it has been pointed by others non-numbered bags kinda sucks, as you can't easily pace yourself without having a dedicated build area)
