Lego took their auto out for a run at the Ehra Lessien proving ground in Germany, where the real Chiron was first tested, and let official Bugatti pilot Andy Wallace have a go on it. Lego used interconnected triangular segments that come together to make a Lego Technic fabric in order to match the iconic shape of the original vehicle.

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. Yes, that was motors plural, as it uses 2,304 motors and 4,032 LEGO Technic gear wheels.

Lego Group has built a life-size model of the Bugatti Chiron using nothing but Lego Technic and a tremendous amount of patience.

Those attending the Grand Prix Formula 1 event in Monza, Italy today will be able to see the mind-blowing creation in person.

Khalil Mack reportedly dealt to the Bears
With Gruden open to dealing Mack, there was no way Davis was going to veto him after giving him $100 million to coach the team. Offensive tackles are nimble enough to mirror and will win most hand fights against a someone effectively playing one-handed.

LEGO has just gone above and beyond with what you can actually build with its LEGO Technic elements.

To be fair, it wasn't entirely LEGO pieces; there's a steel frame, some batteries, 3d-printed gears, and Bugatti tires. LEGO as taken real LEGO Technic parts and used those parts to construct a life-size and drivable replica of the Bugatti Chiron. This is also the first-time load-bearing parts were built purely out of LEGO. 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. While the real Bugatti Chiron produces 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, the engine of Lego's 1.5-tonne vehicle generates 5.3 horsepower and an estimated 67 lb-ft of torque.

A true Bugatti Chiron next to the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. It weighs more than 3,300 pounds, has a functional rear spoiler and a top speed of more than 12 miles per hour.
