First, it was insanely detailed 7,500-piece Millenium Falcon. Then there was the new 2,595-piece Mack Anthem Truck, which literally landed in stores as the full-sized trucks rolled off the factory line. And now, just went you think Lego designers can’t outdo themselves, they unveil this gorgeous Bugatti Chiron.

Much like the Mack Anthem, this latest collaborative drop from Lego Technic was designed in conjunction with the actual company, Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. Which means it clearly doesn’t lack for realism. It’s a 1:8 scale, 3,599-piece replica loaded with authentic features like an engine with moving pistons, an eight-speed gearbox with movable paddle gearshift, detailed disc brakes, steering wheel adorned with the Bugatti emblem, and spoked rims with low-profile tires. Similar to the real car, it even includes a speed key to activate the rear wing.

The Chiron is almost two-feet long, comes in the classic Bugatti duo-tone blue (with stickers for detailing), and rocks both a unique serial number under the hood and handsome collector’s brochure with building instructions. Also, there’s “a stylish Bugatti overnight bag” packed in the trunk. the LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron advanced building set just hit the Lego store and, fortunately, has not already sold out.
