Who needs 3D Printing when you can use LEGO?!
A fascinating feat of design and engineering…with a difference!
If anyone went to any of the Legoland parks over the summer, you may have thought some of the life sized models there were pretty amazing, but the designers of the parks have really excelled themselves this time!
What would you think to a LEGO Technic life-size, fully functional, self propelling model replica of one of the fastest cars in the world, a Bugatti Chiron?!
The LEGO builders have really pushed the boundaries this time, and using only LEGO Technic bricks (and not a bit of glue!), managed to create the first large scale movable construction, fitting 2 passengers and the ability to reach over 20km/h.
The detailing that has gone into the model car is incredible, with the internal features of the car, such as the seats, dashboard and steering wheel, being just as carefully and precisely recreated as the outside appearance.
According to the press release on the LEGO website, “Andy Wallace – the driver behind the LEGO Technic Chiron – former racing driver with multiple wins of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Daytona, as well as many other races, and today official Bugatti pilot, said:
"When I first saw the LEGO Chiron, I was immediately impressed by the accuracy of the model and the minute attention to detail. In fact, from about 20 metres away it’s not obvious that you are looking at a LEGO car. I can only imagine how much time and effort went into making this model."
We love it! How about you?!
