Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti, said: "Thanks to their proven design and technology expertise, the LEGO Group and Bugatti are the epitomes of their brand segments".

Bugatti's Chiron is one of the world's most desirable cars - but it's also one of the most exclusive with just 500 set to be made along with a price tag in excess of £2m.

LEGO developed this kit in partnership with Bugatti, ensuring that all of the details were could be represented perfectly by pieces from LEGO's endless inventory.

All of the hypercar's parts are widely used in other Lego products, apart from the bespoke wheels that are designed exclusively for the Chiron model. The official description and full list of features can be found below.

Lego's latest super intricate and super cool Technic set is arguably its most impressive yet. There's 3599 parts, an active rear wing that's operated through Bugatti's signature speed key and a W16 engine with moving pistons!

Open the doors and you find a detailed cockpit with a Bugatti logo on the steering wheel and a working eight-speed paddle-shift gearbox. Additionally, Lego has even gone to the lengths to provide the speed key which in the real vehicle enables you to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position.

Even the rear wing's adjustability has seen a faithful recreation.

Lift the hood to access a compact storage compartment containing a stylish Bugatti overnight bag. This allows you to build detailed engines and drivetrains which operate like they do in actual vehicles.

LEGO says each model will get a unique serial number to identify it.

Time was when Lego bricks were good for constructing model buildings, clumsy little aeroplanes, lumpy-looking pirate ships and not much else.

Bugatti boss Stephan Winkelmann said: "The Lego Technic model of the Bugatti Chiron is an expression of this ideal relationship".
