The Best Lego Car Is The New Bugatti Bolide

  • The most extreme Bugatti ever created gets Lego treatment for $49.99.
  • Bugatti Bolide is track-only version and is already sold out
  • The Lego Bolide features 905 pieces and is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches

Lego has had an intimate relationship with the car world for many years now. Lego fans, young and not so young, will be well aware of the Lego Technic Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, Lego Technic Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and even the Fast & Furious Dom’s Dodge Charger. 

Now, the most extreme Bugatti ever created, the track-only Bolide, has been transformed into LEGO Technic form, continuing a partnership between the LEGO Group and Bugatti that began with Chiron in 2018. And it only costs $49.99.

Made from 905 pieces the Bugatti costs $49.99.
This is the box set you should look out for.

The scale LEGO Technic Bugatti Bolide recreation – measuring over 3” high, 12” long and 5” wide and featuring 905 pieces – is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches. These include scissor-opening doors, aerodynamic rims with low-profile tires, a detailed cockpit with a rotating steering wheel, and a detailed W16 engine with moving pistons. 

Wiebke Ståhl, Managing Director at Bugatti International, said: “The LEGO Technic model of the Bugatti Bolide is an expression of a perfect partnership between our brands. Bugatti is renowned the world over for its leadership in continuously raising the bar across numerous spheres, including design, performance and engineering. These core values are illustrated perfectly when pairing the Bugatti Bolide to its LEGO model.”

Finished in black and yellow, the LEGO Technic Bugatti Bolide pays homage to the favored colors of the company founder, Ettore Bugatti, who colored many of his own cars in this two-tone combination. It comes complete with authentic sticker details to recreate Bolide’s ultimate evolution of the Bugatti ‘Form Follows Performance’ design philosophy.

Bolide’s numerous air ducts and delicate front end, including the famous Bugatti horseshoe grille are brought to life in LEGO form, with the wheel arch mounted vents and X-motifs – a trademark of Bolide – applied as a sticker. A large scoop, designed strategically as part of the roof, feeds air to the 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W16 engine. It curves gently into a stabilizing tail-fin while an enormous fixed rear wing supplies the necessary downforce. An X-shaped taillight design provides a recognizable visual signature.

Niels Henrik Horsted, Head of Product LEGO Technic & Speed Champions, said: “I am very excited about this new model. Our LEGO Technic designers have done an amazing job capturing the details of this extreme Bugatti design. With LEGO bricks you can build anything you can imagine, and with LEGO Technic elements, you can build for real.”

The Bolide is unique in every sense, with exceptional Bugatti performance, power, design and track-focused drivability at its nucleus.

The Lego Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 was a popular piece too.

Having made a surprise appearance in 2021 at The Quail in Monterey, California, when a limited production run was announced, demand for the Bolide was unprecedented and instantaneous. By the end of Monterey Car Week, all 40 examples of this radically light track-oriented Bugatti machine were sold, with a unit price of four million Euros each. The first deliveries are scheduled for 2024.

A year earlier, the Bolide made its global debut as the most extreme Bugatti ever created by the French luxury marque. Bugatti’s engineers and designers have honed the lightest and most track-focused Bugatti conceivable, using the brand’s legendary W16 quad-turbocharged engine for the Bolide’s beating heart.

The new LEGO Technic Bugatti Bolide is available for sale in all international markets and can be bought from official retailers.

OUR THOUGHTS

Lego has excelled once again. What a machine! A Bugatti in Lego form, and the most extreme track-only version to boot! As far as we know, there are two ways to get kids interested in cars. One is through driving games like Gran Turismo, and the other is using Lego in car form. Oh, and maybe with Mattel Hot Wheels models too. But we have a feeling that this special edition Lego Bugatti may appeal to those car fans who don’t quite qualify as kids anymore.
