CAN ANYONE HATE LEGO ART ON WHEELS?

Art is subjective at best. Some will love it, some will hate it and some will think they can do better. The only time you cannot get haters is when art happens in the form of Lego. Everybody loves it. It’s impossible to dislike even after you’ve stepped on a few blocks walking around blindly in the middle of the night. 

The greatest lego car ever built, so far, is this Bugatti. A real-size 1:1 Technic version of the Bugatti Chiron originated after designer Aurelien Rouffiange and his team had just completed the 1:8 scale model of the Chiron. 1:8 wasn’t challenging enough.
So they set about creating a full-size, self-propelled vehicle. Yes, it had a working engine. A core team of 16 specialists, including design, mechanical and electrical experts, put in 13,000 man/woman hours creating the car piece by piece. The greatest challenge lay in creating special flexible, interlocking parts that would replicate the curves of the real car. The finished car was driven by Bugatti’s official test driver and former Le Mans winner, Andy Wallace.  Of course, you can build your own smaller version consisting of 3,599-piece piece Bugatti Chiron in French racing blue.


SPECS:
Over 1,000,000 LEGO Technic elements in total.
No glue used in the assembly.
Total weight: 1,500 kg.
Engine contains:
2,304 LEGO Power Functions motors.
4,032 LEGO Technic gear wheels.
2,016 LEGO Technic cross axles.
Theoretical performance of 5.3 HP.
Estimated torque of 92 Nm.
Functional rear spoiler (using LEGO Power Functions and pneumatics).
Functional speedometer built entirely from LEGO Technic elements.


 

And Then there were the others

 F40

The ’90s superstar is one of the most iconic models that have ever rolled out of Maranello. So Lego went ahead and   made a solid replica with a full  interior. Over 358,000 Lego elements   were   used, and over 1,800 hours were spent by a   team of designers and builders to develop the model,  while another 1,900 hours   were used to build it. Okay, the  wheels and interior are  mostly real. At least, the east won’t be painful on your  underside.

64 Mustang

The proportions are a little off if you stare at it for a long time. But you have to stare at it. Because it is one of the most iconic cars ever made.  This was a commissioned piece built for Southern Ford Dealers in America and Lego in 2016. It was made with 194,900 bricks. It’s also wired up with a horn and speakers under the hood, the latter of which emits proper V8 engine sounds synonymous with the famous Pony Car.

VW CAMPER VAN

This fantastic camper with a full interior was built out of a passion for all things VW by LEGO Certified Professional Rene Hoffmeister with help from Pascal Lenhard with over 400,000 bricks. It includes a detailed interior with a mini-kitchen that even has pots and pans all made from Lego. It weighs 700 kilos (1,543 lbs.) 400,000 blocks (20,000 transparent), 5 meters (16.4 ft.) long, 3 meters (9.8 ft.) tall, with a functional sliding door and Westfalia roof.

MCLAREN SENNA 

The Senna is a fuid, flowing curvaceous piece of rolling art. And the creators of this Lego masterpiece kept true to that form as much as possible. It comes with opening butterfly doors and a complete interior. It’s also wired up with functional headlights and a sound system that plays a recording of the road car’s twin-turbo V8 when pushing the start button. It took nearly half a million bricks and almost 5,000 hours to build and was displayed at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
