LEGO created a full-size Bugatti that can drive up to 18 MPH

Just when you thought LEGO couldn't get any cooler, the company builds a full-size, drivable model of the Bugatti Chiron supercar.

The specs don't exactly match the original, though.

The real Chiron produces 1,500 horsepower from a quad-turbocharged W16 engine and can hit 261 MPH.

The LEGO lookalike makes 5.3 horses from 2,304 tiny motors, and can drive a whopping 18 MPH.

Lego says that all in all, the build process took just shy of 13,500 hours. They started brainstorming back in June of last year, with actual construction beginning in March of 2018.

Here's some of the neat features:

  • A detachable steering wheel
  • Doors that actually open and close
  • A spoiler that lifts and lowers at the push of a button, with a control panel to toggle all the lights and electronics
  • A functional speedometer, also built out of Technic piece

So, what's next for this look-alike? 

LEGO will be showing the model off in person at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza.
