That is, of course, much slower than an actual Bugatti Chiron, which boasts a top speed of 261 miles per hour. But as impressive an engineering feat as the real car is, as someone who’s been building with Lego my entire life, I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the logistics of recreating a working Chiron using over a million interlocking plastic pieces. Lego started the build back in September of 2017 (after months of planning) and only finished it a few months ago.

Surprisingly, there’s not a single drop of glue in the replica, which Lego’s master builders often use to hold larger creations together. But to make it drivable on four wheels, and to properly support the weight of 1,500-pounds of plastic, a human driver, and a passenger, the vehicle is supported on a minimal steel framework that also includes minimal non-Lego parts for the vehicle’s drivetrain.

Everything else, from working head and tail lights, to doors that open and close, to a lavishly detailed, blocky interior (with a steering wheel, dashboard, shifter, seats, brake pedal, and mirrors) is made from Lego bricks or Lego Technic pieces.
To get the colors just right, Lego even had to manufacture 56 new parts for this build, which took over 13,400 man hours to complete. How much do you think this Chiron is insured for?
