LEGO Step 1: Collaborate with Bugatti to create a Technic set (42083) of their Chiron sports car. Step 2: do major promotion of LEGO Technic by using its pieces to build a life-sized fully-mobile Bugatti Chiron. Step 3: Send the brick-built Bugatti on a European tour at test-tracks and car shows. Step 4: Make it into a cross-Atlantic tour instead.
And so, after months on the touring road, LEGO’s incredible life-sized masterwork is coming home, sort of. Following its stints in France, UK and US this Power Functions-driven Technic MOC has been transported to Billund. There it will be put on display at LEGO House.
The exhibition of the 1:1 Bugatti Chiron in Denmark’s Home of the Brick will be kicked off by an event. On May 16, car expert Christian Gau will perform an interview of the LEGO Bugatti building team. This includes the original design guys and the Czech LEGO builders who actually put the Technic pieces together.
Also included in the Thursday afternoon program was a LEGO car-build competition (naturally). Prizes were given away to the best short-notice design. The 1:1 LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron itself is on display at LEGO House in Billund until June 10. What happens to it afterwards hasn’t been shared by LEGO.
