Lego Launches 1:8 Scale Bugatti You Can Build Yourself

The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined supercar with a pedigree that has made it the automotive equivalent of unobtanium—at roughly $2.7 million, its first production run of 200 cars was sold out before one was built in 2016. The most recent version is capable of 0-248 mph in 32.6 seconds from its 1,479-horsepower 8.0-liter V-16 engine. The EPA rated it at 14 mpg on the highway and only 9 mpg around town.
