Holy mother of… LEGO actually built a replica of the Bugatti Chiron and mind you, it is not the LEGO Technic set revealed in June; it is a freaking life-size model of that supercar and it is drivable! This is must have a dream come true for LEGO super fans and the craziest since after the drivable cardboard Lexus. All told, this real-size drivable LEGO Technic Bugatti is made up of over a million LEGO Technic pieces and it took nearly 13,500 hours to construct.

Bugatti is not just the name for super fast supercar nor is it merely about ridiculously expensive automobile. It is also one of the name in automobile innovations and the latest innovation is this brake caliper which Bugatti proudly proclaimed as “world’s largest titanium functional component produced by additive manufacturing.” In other words, it is here is 3-D printed.

Amalgam made a name for itself by creating insanely detailed scaled car models and scaled replica steering wheels, and if you think it’d stop right there, well, you are sorely wrong. The company has taken its scaled modelling to an out-of-this-world level of details with the 1/4 Scale Bugatti Chiron Engine and Gearbox. For this particular model, Amalgam collaborated closely with Bugatti to recreate the supercar maker’s 1,500 HP 8L 16-cylinder W engine that, without any real life object comparison, you’d thought it is the real deal pulled from a Bugatti Chiron. Continue reading Would You Pay $10K For A 1/4 Scale Bugatti Chiron W16 Engine?
So, the car Scrooge McDuckians around the world have been waiting for has finally been unveiled. We are talking about the new Bugatti Chiron, successor to the world’s fastest street-legal car, the Bugatti Veyron. Powered by a quad-turbocharged 8L W16 motor, this new icon of speed, power and opulence carries with it 1,480 horsepower and turns out a metal-twisting 1,180 lb-ft (1,600 Nm) of torque, making it the most powerful production car to date. The enormous power is put to good use on all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with the “largest, highest performance clutch” ever in a passenger car, that pushes its 4,400-pound frame from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.5 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 260 mph (420 km/h).

Decades ago, automotive and timepiece hardly had any relation, but these days, automotive-inspired timepieces or automaker/watchmaker collabs are very much a norm. I believe we have seen quite a bit here, of which includes the likes of Breitling Bentley chronograph and Jaguar x Bremont, and now, Ralph Lauren. In fact, the Ralph Lauren Automotive Skeleton Watch, as it is called, is not the first from the American fashion label; it is the second model that also happens to be inspired by the classic, if not iconic, 1938 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic Coupe. Not surprisingly, Ralph Lauren is a huge auto head and also not surprisingly, the $40 million 1938 Bugatti 57SC is among the fleet of cars he owns. But seriously, a second automotive-inspired watch still based on the same car? Man, Mr. Lauren sure have deep love for this particular classic. Continue reading Ralph Lauren’s 1938 Bugatti 57SC-inspired Timepiece is a Skeletal Beauty
when it comes to Bugatti, Veyron in particular, everyone including those who can’t afford it, has high expectations, even more so when it is an edition that pays homage to the company’s patron Ettore Bugatti and hence the name. so, no. the post title wasn’t a typo. as you might have expected, the Bugatti Edition takes on the design and styling cues from Ettore’s very own creation, the Type 41 Royale and is based on the 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, which means it is push forth by a 8.0-liter W16 unit with 1,183 horsepower on the tap and a century sprint of a scant 2.6 seconds, sending it on its way to a breathtaking top speed of 254 mph (408 km/h). Continue reading Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Ettore Bugatti Edition (Not A Typo)
we imagine filthy rich folks must have paid ‘handsomely’ for many seemingly regular items, but 84 grand for a belt buckle? this got to be the first. however, but before you go on and dismiss this as one of those ridiculously priced objects of the rich (which it actually is, anyway…), let just say it need no precious stones to make this one heck of a belt bucket. the magic lies in the engineering marvel of micro proportion put into it. yeah. we know. we find strange saying that too. anyway, here’s the story: this belt bucket was developed with Bugatti Automobile Company and features an intricate belt mechanism that lets the wearer adjust the belt size within a 22 mm range without the need for unbuckling.
