It doesn’t take a genius to figure out how much LEGO really loves their recent Technic set for the awe-inspiring LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083). Its launch not long ago was quite flashy, and indeed, the set has been getting lots of positive reviews from the experts to casual but mechanically savvy builders. And it seems LEGO isn’t quite done promoting the Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083) just yet. They’ve got something else planned, something bigger than anyone might expect. That was the tone set by LEGO’s recent post on social media, about another reveal they have for the penultimate day of this month.
That post consists of a video loop showing the close-up detail of a car headlight with the tagline “We’ve built the impossible.” Long story short, LEGO has taken their 3,599-piece Technic set 42083 and blown it up into a full-sized MOC. The Technic pieces in the detail are easily discernible. One particular LEGO fan even went the extra mile of superimposing the teaser image on top of the left side headlights of a real Bugatti Chiron, and the resulting image just says it all.
We’re not quite sure yet why LEGO would make a 1:1 scale of their 1:8 scale model set for the Bugatti Chiron (42083). One possibility is a promotion for LEGO Technic itself, if the post tag of #buildforreal and “Anything is possible” are any clue. It’s something to wait for; and a short wait, too until August 31.
