Watch how the Life-Sized LEGO Technic version of the Bugatti Chiron was made [+video]

Lego wanted to take things to the next level and with Lego Technic, you can build for real. And to prove this is more than just a slogan, Lego decided to build a car. But not just any car. This car would be a true 1:1 copy of the magnificent Bugatti Chiron, built from LEGO Technic elements. And if though that wasn’t enough, Lego also wanted their car – for the first time ever – to actually drive and be powered by the same Power Functions motor technology they use in their standard models.
