Due to arrive this August, the kit will comprise 3,599 pieces, marking a big jump from the 2,700-piece Porsche 911 GT3 RS kit the company put out a couple of years ago.
That makes us wonder what Lego has in store for Bugatti fans: the 911 set not only had a flat-six engine with moving parts but also included a functional recreation of the 911’s dual-clutch transmission complete with shift paddles.
Details on the Chiron kit are scarce so far, with CNET reporting a price of 369 Euros, which works out to more than CAD$560. The real Chiron is a 1,500-hp car that can hit 420-km/h and accelerate to 400 km/h and stop again in 42 seconds.
The Chiron will be the latest in a line of high-profile Lego car models, which include the VW Beetle and Westfalia camper van, the 911 GT3, and a classic Mini Cooper.
Here’s the teaser video Lego posted to its Facebook page:
