Recommendation: yes 4 / 5 by Tom Alphin

The finished model looks fantastic. For the most part, they nailed it. The car looks unmistakably Bugatti, and unmistakably LEGO Technic at the same time. The two-tone color palette looks fantastic, and it provides LEGO Technic builders with a lot of elements in 140 Earth Blue and 322 Medium Azur for the first time. There are only four mechanical functions, but they work well. Lastly, I loved the marriage between the podcast and the relevant stages of the LEGO building experience. I hope we see more traditional LEGO sets with complementary multimedia content like this!

Recommendation: yes by Michael

This is easily the best LEGO set I have owned to date, and I would say it is definitely among the better Technic sets for car lovers. In true LEGO fashion, it doesn't end with completing the model: if I can ever afford to buy pieces off Bricklink, I would really like to try implementing some of the community mods.

A LEGO Technic set is designed following three basic principles: 1. the set must model one or more technical functions as accurate as possible. 2. the set must look good, and be as recognizable as possible. 3. and the building experience must be as challenging as possible. By these principles, I must admit, that the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is one of the best Technic sets LEGO ever made. It is also the best possible justification for an adult LEGO hobby: nobody, who sees this set, is going to look at you weirdly and go "what is a grown-up like you doing with a kids toy?". Instead, everybody want to touch the model. They can't resist it, which, obviously, tell you that they want to own it.

There's no question that this car is a looker, as befits a conveyance machine designed for the 0.01%. The Chiron is a synthesis of new and old. It's named after Louis Chiron, a racecar driver for Bugatti in the 1930s, and the dark and light blue color scheme is a nod to the brand's early cars like the Type 57. Yet under the hood, it's as modern a 21st-century automobile as engineering can make. Likewise, the Bugatti Chiron LEGO kit blends old and new; a Technic system that recently celebrated its 40th anniversary is added to with several new elements and a podcast to enhance the building experience. But more importantly, LEGO itself is embracing the marriage of its classic kid's toy with the notion that yes, adults build LEGO Technic kits too, and want a premium quality set with luxurious packaging and a masterfully complex build. LEGO raised the bar on what a premium set should be with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. They've just raised it again with the Bugatti Chiron.

The set provides and long and satisfying build. There is little repetition -- mainly just left- and right- hand assemblies -- and, apart from the engine and gearbox, it's not particularly complicated or taxing. The completed model looks absolutely stunning. The dual-tone colour scheme makes so much more attractive than a single-colour model. The dark tan interior contrasts perfectly with the shades of blue. But does it look like the real car? Of course the limitations of the Technic system has required some compromises but I reckon the designer, Aurelien Rouffiange, has done an excellent job of translating the sleek and sensual lines of the bodywork into Technic.

I could of quite easily abandoned the build in those first few bags, but I'm glad I carried on because it has been fun, yes frustrating at time, but definitely fun. The final set looks incredible but the truly amazing thing about the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is the level of engineering that flows throughout it. Gears, pistons, speed keys, retractable wings and even an overnight bag, ever aspect of the set has been crafted with the same level of care as the actual Bugatti.

The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083) took a long time to complete but the end result is a very nice looking supercar. The iconic shades of blue look absolutely amazing and does parallel the real-life car.

Overall, I do like this model better than the Porsche. The build is slightly more fun, the gearbox works better and I do love the duo-tone color scheme. Oh, and did I mention the gorgeous looking rear of the car?! All things considered I do love this set. If you are into the Porsche, you will definitely love this set. If you think the Porsche is just an expensive display model, you can easily skip this set as well. On the other hand; this line of supercars is probably the best chance, for most of us, of getting a collection of supercars.

This is an impressive and beautiful set that should appeal to fans of cars in general, not just Bugatti. Technic fans will also appreciate the intricate work involved in having LEGO elements form these complicated shapes, the imaginative use of elements, and especially the complex gearbox. People who like to MOC stuff will also find value in this set, with its plethora of elements in uncommon colours (Dark Blue and Dark Azure) and the gearbox elements, unique at time of writing.
