In an effort to promote their Lego Technic products and to support their "Build for Real" slogan, Lego built a working, life-size model of a Bugatti Chiron out of over 1 million pieces of Lego, and more surprisingly, no glue.

The engineers and the designers had to overcame challenge to recreate the real Chiron. Not only does it look like the real thing, it also drives as well – and to prove it was taken on the same German track where Bugatti do their testing…
Four extra-large Lego motors drive 8 Lego Technic pneumatic pumps to generate 40 psi of pressure to move and tilt the rear Spoiler and an 80 Volt 200 amp battery powers 2,304 Lego Power Functions L-Motors which can achieve a top speed of 30 kph which is pretty good for a 1,500 kg Lego Model.
This isn’t the largest Lego model, that honor would currently go to a 23 ton, 5.3 million block model of an X-Wing fighter
