Back in August Lego unveiled a life-size Bugatti Chiron made out of Technic. Not only was this the largest unglued Lego model of its kind, it could also be driven around - albeit only up to around 18 miles an hour. Well now that car has come to the UK, and it will be going on a small tour for people to gawp at it.
Sadly the tour is limited to three locations, all of which are in London. Well actually the final spot is in Dartford, which is technically Kent, but it's within the M25 and that definitely counts as London. The first stop was the Savoy in Mayfair, home to a Bugatti showroom. That's was only a quick visit, from the looks of things, so now it's heading to the proper tour.
The first stop is in Westfield shopping centre right outside Shepherd's Bush tube station, where you can see it between 10am and 10pm on 1st November (Thursday). The second stop is on 3rd November (Saturday) with the car loitering around outside M&S in Westfield Stratford between 9am and 9pm. The final stop is the second floor of the Bluewater shopping centre in Dartford, on 8th November between noon and 9pm.
Because they're all shopping centres, you obviously won't be allowed a chance to drive it. This isn't The Blues Brothers. If you're not around London, then it kind of sucks to be you. Especially as Lego is referring to this as a 'UK tour'. Sorry people in Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and all those other big places, you're just going to have to travel if you want to see it that badly.
Nicola Morgan Hulme, Senior Brand Relations Manager for UK & Ireland, for the LEGO Group said:
“We wanted to give LEGO Technic fans the chance to see this incredible model for themselves - so we’ve taken the Bugatti on a European Tour. The model looks fantastic in images, but it is truly breath-taking in real life - you can see the intricate detail up close.”
