Who hasn’t played with Legos? They can be seen as the iconic “building blocks” of so many people’s childhoods, and in 1989 they were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame. Although they are mostly for kids, many advanced models can be enjoyed by adults too, just like the one we’ll be reviewing today.
But first, how about some interesting facts about these little building pieces? For example, did you know that the Lego Group was founded way back in the 1930’s? And if you’ve ever wondered what Lego actually means, it’s a word created by using the first letters of the Danish phrase Leg Godt, which means to play well.
With Legos you can build almost anything your imagination can create. One man in Britain even built a full-size Lego house using three million pieces! And of course, who can forget the media buzz that was generated when Lego joined forces with Bugatti and they built a working car!
This became so popular that a Bugatti replica set was created, and this is our review about it:
The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron
Capturing the essence of the quintessential super sports vehicle, this model is built at a 1:8 scale, and has all the details that the real supercar has. By inserting the top speed key, you can switch the rear wing and make it pop up.
The elaborate cockpit features an 8-speed gear box that is fully-functioning, and has all the details that capture the feel of the genuine car. It has a movable paddle gearshift and the steering wheel bears the famous Bugatti emblem.
At the rear you can open the lid and take a peek at the detailed W16 engine, with pistons that actually move. Every replica has its unique serial number printed beneath the hood, which makes them a collector’s item. It also has a storage compartment that includes a beautiful and stylish tiny Bugatti overnight bag replica.
This Bugatti Chiron 42083 Lego model is built with 3,599 pieces, and is compatible with all other Lego Technic sets and building bricks. Featuring the classic Bugatti duo-tone blue color scheme, an additional set of stickers for detailing is included. It comes in a luxurious box packaging with a collector’s booklet that has all the instructions needed to put it together.
It is indeed an advanced building set, so it’s recommended for experienced Lego builders ages 16 and up. This is a perfect gift for dad; a must-have model kit, and the ultimate addition to any Lego car lover’s collection.
