LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron
LEGO's new Bugatti Chiron is a Technic-ally perfect replica. I mean, I've never driven, or ridden in, or, fine, even seen a Bugatti Chiron up close to make the call from hands-on experience, but LEGO collaborated with Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S to develop the 1:8 scale model, so at least a few people who have done all those things did weigh in.
Plus, the Technic Bugatti Chiron set has exactly 3,599 piece. And I doubt that's just to drive OCD people who like round, even numbers insane. It must represent the precise number of bricks, from Smurf blue aerodynamic body panels to moving pistons in the W16 engine, required to produce an authentic representation of one of the most expensive sports cars in the world. (And also, according to Wikipedia, the third-fastest production car by acceleration time.)
Additional LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron highlights include an 8-speed gearbox with movable paddle gearshift in the cockpit, a top speed key that switches the active rear wing from handling to top speed position, logoed spoked rims with low-profile tires, and detailed brake discs. The set also comes with stickers for your added detailing, and a collector's booklet with what LEGO calls "comprehensive building instructions."
Even in LEGO form, the Bugatti Chiron is not recommended for anyone under the age of 16.
