Do you remember when you were a kid and your cars built out of Legos, and your parents told you how wonderful they were?
She lied. Your car & # 39; s were not great. It's good, ours was not great either. But Lego has just built one.
Lego has built a fully functional car using the Technics line, which consists of interlocking pieces that can form more complex shapes and structures than the standard Lego parts. And the company did not just build a car – it built a Bugatti Chiron, one of the spectacular-looking sports cars in the world.
The project took more than 13,000 hours, using more than 1 million Lego pieces and perhaps the most surprising, no glue to confirm pieces together. The Lego Bugatti is controlled by an 80-volt battery and 2,304 of the company's Power Function toy engines.
A few non-Lego parts on the vehicle were needed for logistical reasons, such as the tires, the brake system (from a kart) and the power steering system. A steel frame supports the 3,300-pound car.
But everything else is made from Lego & # 39; s. Watch the video above to see how the car was built – it is pretty impressive.
