The Bugatti Chiron. Spotted on the street in Carmel during #montereycarweek .
It's one of the fastest production cars in the world, logging a 0-60 mph time of 2.4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 261 mph. The car is stated to be capable of a higher speed, but Bugatti claims there is not a tire available that could handle the car's theoretical peak of 289 mph.
The Chiron is propelled to such heights by a heavily updated version of the engine found in the Chiron's predecessor, the mighty Veyron. This latest iteration of the quad-turbo 8.0-liter (7,993 cc) W16 engine churns out a mind-boggling 1,479 horsepower (1,500 PS, 1,103 kW) and 1,180 pound-feet (1,600 Nm) of torque. The considerable grunt is transmitted to the road through the combination of a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive system.
Any vehicle that sports a combination of world-class performance and sumptuous luxury won't come cheap, and the Chiron is no exception. It rings in at nearly $3 million.
If you must have one of your very own but didn't take home one from the limited-production run of 200 vehicles (sold out before any of them were delivered), you could always spring for the LEGO Technic version. Modeled in 1:8 scale, it gives you the opportunity to build your very own Chiron, provided you can afford 22" (56 cm) of shelf space upon which to display it.
LEGO actually built a full-size, 1:1-scale Technic version of this vehicle and it can be driven. It's made almost entirely of LEGO parts (with some notable exceptions being the wheels, seatbelts, a steel frame, and other structural parts), and moves under its own power thanks to 2,304 standard LEGO Power Function motors. Together, they are estimated to put out 5.4 horsepower (5.4 PS, 4 kW) and 68 lb-ft (92 Nm) of torque.
