LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron – Set Preview

Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron 42083 Review

LEGO’s new 42083 Technic Bugatti Chiron is finally here! Teased here earlier in the year, and joining the previously revealed Technic sets in the 2018 H2 line-up, LEGO’s officially licensed 3,599 piece 1:8 scale recreation of the world’s fastest production car will go on sale worldwide on August 1st priced at $350, and it looks incredible.

Following the 2016 42056 Technic Porsche GT3 RS set, LEGO’s new Bugatti flagship becomes the biggest, the most detailed and the most technically advanced supercar set to date.

Underneath the beautifully replicated bodywork in Bugatti’s signature blue sits a working W16 piston engine, the largest ever fitted to a Technic model and true to the real car’s quad-turbo 8.0 litre W16. Double wishbone suspension, working steering and an eight-speed paddle shift-operated gearbox all feature alongside it and, like the Porsche GT3 RS set, the build process mirrors the Chiron’s actual factory production process of marrying these components together once each is completed.

LEGO’s 42038 Technic Bugatti Chiron set also includes a brick-built ‘top speed’ key, which the real Bugatti Chiron features to enable the car to hit its electronically limited top speed of 261mph. The 42083 set uses this to adjust the Bugatti’s rear air-brake/spoiler between its three settings, including a locked position for high speed runs across the kitchen floor.

New wheels – authentically replicating those found on the real Bugatti Chiron, tyres, bespoke Bugatti decals, and a limited-edition numbered brick are all included in the set, plus 42083 features a beautifully designed box (pictured above) and a coffee-table style presentation book – as first debuted on the 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set in 2016.
