Two things we at Limo Broker love is high-powered supercars and Lego. Geeks; right?
Well, geeks or not, we were thrilled to learn that a Bugatti Chiron made out of actual Lego was making its way around London last week, giving the city’s community of car-lovers something to talk about!
Visiting the Bugatti showroom in Mayfair, this Lego creation was part of a promotional push from the brand. Grabbing the attention of car and Lego fans alike, Bugatti and Lego have put on a real show here, with thousands of snaps being shared on social media of this innovative car.
Nicola Morgan Hulme, senior brand relations manager for UK & Ireland at the Lego Group, said:
‘We wanted to give Lego Technic fans the chance to see this incredible model for themselves – so we’ve taken the Bugatti on a European Tour,’ said
‘The model looks fantastic in images, but it is truly breath-taking in real life – you can see the intricate detail up close.’
Leaving Mayfair, the Lego car then made its way to Westfield Shopping Centre in London, giving shoppers and passers-by a glimpse of the Lego vehicle. Following that, the car ventured to Westfield Stratford and finally, Bluewater Shopping Centre in Dartford.
Weighing a huge 1.5 tonnes, the car boasted a real engine capable of 5.3 horsepower and a torque of 92 Nm. While small numbers when compared to the real-life thing, when considering no glue or parts aside from Lego were used, this is a pretty incredible car.
Lego also stayed true to the Chiron’s design with the interior, with the dashboard, seats and everything inside looking exactly as it should; just made out of toy bricks!
Let us know what you think. Is this an impressive, credible creation or a waste of time? We would love to know your thoughts.
