Il tanto atteso momento della presentazione è arrivato. Il presidente di LEGO e Bugatti hanno presentato durante un evento speciale presso la LEGO House, la nuova punta di diamante dei set LEGO Technic: la Bugatti Chiron, codice 42083.
Sarcasticamente, l’evento dichiarato da LEGO come “il più grande lancio di un prodotto LEGO Technic” è stato forse uno dei lanci meno sorprendenti di sempre in quanto foto della scatola, delle istruzioni, delle fasi di montaggio fino alla video preview di ieri, circolavano già da svariati giorni in rete.
Oggi però possiamo ammirare le foto in alta definizione in tutta la sua bellezza.
In vendita già da ora su LEGO Shop online e prossimamente, dal 1° agosto, anche nei negozi fisici, potrete acquistarla al prezzo di 399,99 Eur.
Visto il clamore che ha suscitato nelle scorse settimane siamo curiosi di sapere cosa ne pensate di questo incredibile set LEGO Technic ora che è finalmente stato ufficializzato.

The model encapsulates the magic, power and elegance of the Chiron, unveiled to the world two years ago and now brought to life in LEGO Technic™ form, offering a unique, authentic building experience for car enthusiasts and LEGO fans of all ages.
Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group said:
“I am very excited about this new model. Our LEGO designers have done an amazing job capturing the details of this iconic Bugatti design. It truly stands as testament that with LEGO bricks you can build anything you can imagine, and an example that with LEGO Technic™, you can build for real. It’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and design are truly fascinating.”
Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.:
“Thanks to their proven design and technology expertise, the LEGO Group and Bugatti are the epitomes of their brand segments. The LEGO Technic™ model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of this perfect relationship. I am impressed at the precision and refinement with which our super sports car has been translated into the LEGO world and I am sure that fans of both LEGO bricks and Bugatti will love this product.”
The 1:8 scale LEGO® Technic™ Bugatti Chiron replica model – measuring over 5” (14cm) high, 22” (56cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide and featuring 3,599 pieces – is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches. These include aerodynamic bodywork with an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, detailed cockpit with movable paddle gearshift, and detailed W16 engine with moving pistons.
