Lego replica Bugatti Chiron runs at top speed of 28.97 kph

They started with a modified chassis that was smaller than a regular auto chassis, as Lego's goal was to keep the vehicle built as much from Lego pieces as possible.

LEGO says that all the details of the auto are created using Technic elements from seats, to dash, to the steering wheel.

Much of the weight of the LEGO Chiron - it's about 1.5 tonnes - is resting on plastic, save for the actual-Chiron wheels and tires; and it's all driven by motors from the LEGO Power Function platform.

Now check out the LEGO Chiron in action in the video below, as it takes its inaugural ride with championship race driver Andy Wallace behind the wheel.

She said he punched her "repeatedly, unprovoked", adding in tears: "He actually punched me like a boxer would punch a bag". Many fans claimed Thomas was "obviously play fighting" and "hardly touched her" during the incident.

This wonder of an automobile was created by the LEGO group, and will be unveiled today for the first time at the Grand Prix Formula 1 event in Monza, Italy.

The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron was built with over 1 million LEGO Technic pieces, with more than 339 different types of these elements in use, and no glue holding them together. With the exception of some Teflon washers that serve as bushings, the motor pack is nearly entirely derived from Lego pieces.

To get the colours right, LEGO even had to manufacture 56 new parts for this build, which took over 13,400 man-hours to finish. The Lego Chiron, powered by a matrix of 2,304 Lego Technic motors, isn't quite that fast (theoretically estimated to put out 5.3 horsepower and nearly 68 pounds-feet of torque). It is as lovely as it is functional, and stands out for great attention to the detail.

Yes, the Bugatti Chiron seen here is made entirely from Lego and Lego Technic pieces to recreate the supercar in stunning detail. With professional racer Andy Wallace behind the wheel, the Lego Chiron clocked a top speed over 12.4 miles per hour at the Ehra Lessien proving ground in Germany sitting on real Chiron wheels and tires. That said, a surprising amount of the interior is functional, including the instrument panel, which sports custom gauges made of - you guessed it - more Lego pieces.
