Naturally, human beings have a penchant for pushing the boundaries a little too far. If you still don’t get what I mean, the story of the Bugatti made from over one million plastic blocks will enlighten you, here we go.

A team from the Czech Republic under the Lego Group brand used over 1 million plastic blocks and an average of 13,000 hours later to build a functional Bugatti made largely out of the iconic construction toys. The vehicle is a replica of the Bugatti Chiron, and from a distance, it’s hard to tell the two apart.

Lena Dixen, Lego Group’s senior vice president of product and marketing, said that the car was made entirely by hand and connected each Lego piece with the next without glue. The team used 339 types of Lego Technic elements and even combined some of them with a special Legos tool.

“For over 40 years, Lego Technic has been enabling fans of all ages to test their creativity with a build system that will make them not only design new designs, but also develop new features,” said Dixen, “This life-size model is unique in many ways and we wanted to push the boundaries of our own imagination.”

The car is electrically powered, with two batteries, over 2,300 Lego Power function motors and over 4,000 Lego gears that transmit power to the vehicle. There is no accelerator as the speed of the car is based on engine output voltage.

One of the main differences with the original piece nonetheless is that it only hits 12 miles per hour while the Bugatti Chiron can hit as much as 200 km/h.
