Remote control Lego Technic Bugatti Veryon – Click above to watch video after the jump

Someone going by the handle "Sheepo" spent who knows how many hours satisfying the urge to build a Bugatti Veyron out of Lego Technic pieces. Among its many features are a remote controlled braking system, power targa roof and motorized rear spoiler. And then there's that working seven-speed sequential gearbox – even the gear lever moves – plus reverse. If it goes 254 miles per hour to scale, we'll be even more impressed. And to any of you with this much time on your hands and dreams in your head, keep up the good work. Follow the jump to see it in action. Hat tip to Cameron!

      That is cooler than the actual car. I love the targa top and the spoiler!

      Lego should hire this guy and sell these sets! It would be amazing to put one of these together.
        • 4 Years Ago
        it would be the most expensive lego set ever to go to production :P
        • 4 Years Ago
        yeah, $1.6 million for the car, $1.6k for the set.

      autoblog please pay some RESPECT, only insensible person will call that's "too much free time"
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah, could you imagine a sports blog writing... "Tiger Woods Wins tournament... looks like he has too much free time on his hands!"

      That manual transmission is AWESOME. It'd be great if someone developed LEGO kits to teach people how transmissions and differentials work, kind of like the scale-model clear plastic block engine kits.

      WOW, I love lego

      I tried to make car transmissions in Lego Technic countless times as an engineer. I'm impressed with the slush box. Amazed he could fit it in there with all the other guts.

      I assume the rubber band brakes work not unlike a conventional handbrake? Innovative.

      OMG :D
      How much?

      Some spend there time watching the news, others read the paper or a book, some watch television sitcoms, play video games, watch porn, go for motorcycle rides or tinker on a car in the garage. Could you call that too much time? It's a hobby, to each his own. This car is incredible.

      Ok this one completely takes the cake. I've seen some crazy Technic stuff but this. This. *bowing*

      Here's another view of it:

      Looks like (judging by my limited lego experience) he's got a limited-slip differential in there too, with that white gear next to the differential. Pity he couldn't make it 4-wheel drive. An impressive accomplishment nonetheless.

      That is incredible. And its a grand sport!
