Lego announced Thursday that it has successfully built a life-size, driveable replica of the Bugatti Chiron.

The car is built entirely of more than 1 million Legos pieces.

The Lego Bugatti Chiron is fully functional and can fit two passengers inside.

Lego says the car can accelerate to slightly over 19 kilometres per hour (theoretically up 29 kilometres per hour) and weighs over 1,300 kg.

It also boasts 5.3 horsepower, as well as real Bugatti Chiron wheels. Two batteries in the car serve as its overall power source. Although there is no gas or acceleration pedal (as the car is driven by voltage level), there is a working pedal for the brake.

The car was built using 339 types of Lego Technic elements.
The engine itself is comprised of 2,304 Lego Power Functions motors, along with 4,032 Lego Technic gear wheels and 2,016 LEGO Technic cross axles.
It was created by Lego designers at its facility in Kladno in the Czech Republic.
A team was comprised of 16 specialists — including design, mechanical and electrical experts — who spent over 13,000 hours building it.

Currently, consumers can purchase a 1:8 scale model of the Lego Bugatti (Lego Technic 24083 Bugatti Chiron, about $350) and build it themselves.
