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.

But once you’ve built your Chiron set, it might be best not to try to recreate the real car’s breathtaking acceleration as it turns out Lego cars don’t do well in crash tests.

Here’s the teaser video Lego posted to its Facebook page:
