Money Monday

Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron RC

The Lego Car Blog is not a money-focussed organisation. We only allow limited advertising, the proceeds of which you can read about here, and the staff all work for nowt (human), or Smarties (elf). However, we are still amongst the richest people on earth, thanks entirely to the place of our birth. And if you’re reading this, you probably are too.

But there’s rich, and then there’s rich! Today’s car certainly belongs to the latter. Costing $2,700,000 in base specification, the Chiron is the world’s fastest (when tested) and most powerful production car, expected to hit around 285mph when de-limited.

We’ll have to wait to see what top speed the Chiron achieves once testing is complete, as the car (and more importantly, the tyres) are in the realms of experimental physics, but even with the car’s main purpose – top speed – being an unknown statistic, it hasn’t stopped 200 Chiron orders being placed before anyone has driven it.

Like we said, there’s rich, then there’s rich! In fact the average Chiron customer already owns over fifty other cars. And a helicopter.

We’ll stick with this one then, built by previous bloggee Lachlan Cameron it’s the first Technic Supercar sized Bugatti Chiron we’ve seen, and it is absolutely spectacular. With Bugatti’s trademark W16 engine hooked up to an all-wheel-drive system, independent suspension, full remote control drive, steering and electronically deployable rear wing, LED lighting, and SBrick bluetooth control, Lachlan’s Chiron is one of the finest Technic Supercars of the year.

There’s a whole lot more to see of Lachlan’s Bugatti at his Flickr photostream or via Eurobricks, including WIP shots and images of the rolling-chassis mechanics. Click the links above to make the jump, and you can see the Chiron in action via the video below.
