Jeremy,
I thought you might like to see this if you haven't already.
Have you built one?

Not yet. I'm waiting for the Ferrari 599 GTO.

Quite a testament to the strength of LEGO's proprietary ABS plastic, no?

Oh my gosh!!!  That is amazing.  Even if they do not go very fast and even if they do not make any turns it is still simply fantastic!!!

Love the geometic skin pattern with repeating hexagonal and triangular motifs -- clearly done for both strength and curvature. Can't wait to get my hands on some of the yet to be released parts I see there.

A pricey but excellent LEGO Technic Bugatti Veyron Chiron at around 1:10 scale is now in stores and at http://shop.lego.com. LEGO prices are tightly controlled everywhere, so might as well buy at the latter and let it come to you.

Wow! Amazing!

In the following video it says that it took 1 million Lego parts and 13,400 man hours. According to my calculation, that's close to a $1 million usd just in labor (take home salary plus taxes and overhead for Danish Czech engineers). The real Bugatti Chiron costs 2.5 to 3 million  :o so it's in the ballpark.
