It’s been over six month now since LEGO unveiled their proof of concept that LEGO bricks can build anything. The proof was a life-sized brick-built Bugatti Chiron, using the same elements as the official LEGO Technic Chiron set (42083) and able to actually run, powered solely by Power Functions motors.
For the rest of 2018 the 1:1 LEGO Bugatti Chiron has been on a grand European tour, appearing in racetracks, auto shows and LEGO Stores. After last hearing of it in the UK, we’ve learned that the life-sized LEGO Chiron has already crossed the Atlantic for its first appearance stateside.
When guests at the Disney Springs commercial hub in Walt Disney World, Florida noticed that open space was being prepared in front of their LEGO Store, excitement started to build. Now they can announce that the 1:1 LEGO Bugatti Chiron will be making its first US stop at Disney Springs.
In case you need a refresher, a crack LEGO design team assembled this epic e-car with over a million LEGO Technic pieces, or 90% of the total construction. The “engine” housed 2,304 Power Functions motors driving 4,032 Technic gear wheels to move its genuine tires. Considering it weighs 1.5 tons it’s a miracle the LEGO Chiron can actually manage 20/km.
The LEGO brick-built Bugatti will be parked at the Disney Springs LEGO Store in Disney World over the weekend, from March 22 to 24. Unfortunately no test drives are allowed, but guests might sit inside and marvel at it all.
