LEGO builds a full-scale, drivable Bugatti Chiron out of LEGO Technics


A fully-functioning car has been built out of LEGO, and yes, you read that correctly

(L) Bugatti Chiron (R) Lego Chiron. The replica consisted of almost all Lego elements and even has the same pop-up rear spoiler, which ran on Power Function motors and pneumatics.

Everyone knows with the right pieces and a lot of patience, you can build just about anything out of LEGO bricks.

Yesterday they unveiled a 1:1 recreation of the Chiron that could not only be driven, but was powered by 2 304 of LEGO's own electric motors which are usually intended for tiny toy cars.

The memorial was laced with humor and featured a racially and ethnically diverse roster of speakers and other participants. Mr Biden made the moving comments during a private memorial service at North Phoenix Baptist Church in Arizona .

The vehicle, which was first test-driven in June, made its public debut on Thursday at the Grand Prix Formula 1 event in Monza, Italy.

The 3,300-pound auto does have some non-Lego material incorporated into it. Engineers started with a steel frame, which provides safety and structural stability to hold the weight of the vehicle. One of those has 1,500hp (1119kW) and a top speed in excess of 261mph (420km/h); the LEGO Technic Bugatti makes just 5.3hp (3.9kW) and tops out at 12.4mph (20km/h).

It's made from around one million pieces (including 4032 gears for the motors) and took a combined 13,438 man hours to put together.

The court ruled the National Energy Board's review of the project was flawed because it failed to consider impact on marine life. On Ottawa's watch, work was halted on other major pipelines, such as Northern Gateway and Energy East.

At full clip, Lego estimates a top speed of about 19 miles per hour, which is pretty good for a 3,300-pound hunk of plastic and steel running on air and electricity.

The vehicle can even drive at speeds up to 20 km/h. The design of the model is virtually identical to the Bugatti Chiron.

Weighing in at more than 3300 pounds, the auto is made with 4032 Technic gear wheels and 2304 motors.

California passes ‘Gold Standard’ net-neutrality protections
California lawmakers have voted to make net neutrality state law, becoming the latest of several states to approve such measures. Almost three dozen states have introduced bills to replace the defunct regulations, and three states have already approved them.

Legos have remained the go-to building blocks for decades to exercise the freedom of creativity, and today, they're capable of producing some wild creations. "I can only imagine how much time and effort went into making this model", Wallace explained.
