Full electric Bugatti Chiron!

Check this out: a fully electric Bugatti Chiron... built from and by Lego!


Powered by 2304 electric Lego motors, top speed 29 km/h.
It costs more than a million... Lego bricks.

Okay, this is not a practical car. No windows, no weather protection, no crash safety, no nothing. But hey, I love the effort that went into it.

Want more of it? A longer vid with a lot of detail in the first and last few minutes:

It's an ad for Lego Technic. Someone got paid to do this.

My new blue Bugattis

Let's say I got inspired.

This afternoon I saw a blue Bugatti in town. I asked if it was for sale.
It was.
Mind if I try it out?
Go ahead.
Oh, nice! That fits me really well.
You know you'll get 50% discount if you buy it?
Wow great. Do you have more?
Yes, we have one just like this.
Great, I'll buy them both!

So now I'm the proud owner of not one but 2 blue Bugattis.

Now, I will be extra careful the first few miles. I won't try out their top speed in a hurry. But I bet I'll get fine mileage.

Last but not least, a photo of these beauties:


All pure coincidence

Would you not have four? Or did I misread the comment?

Where do the batteries go?

Shoe shops only have the right shoe on display. If they add the left the pair might walk away for free...

It is a joke of course, a funny coincidence. Let's not get too distracted from the topic.
Which is a Bugatti Chiron built from Lego bricks.
