This Chiron 1:8 scale model costs more than your actual car.
Anything Bugatti puts its logo on is going to cost money. That much we know to be true. The most recent example of this is a 1:8 scale model of the Chiron created by Amalgam Model Car Collection. The total cost for this model is a whopping $10,160. That’s a ton of money to spend on a car that will live solely on your desk on mantle. But as much as we want to criticize this model completely it may kind of sort of be worth the money, at least if you have the money to spend.
The 1:8 scale Chiron model was handcrafted using CAD data supplied by Bugatti. Additionally, members of the design and engineering teams checked out the model to ensure it was as accurate as a mini supercar can be. The result speaks for itself. The Chiron model’s paint is absolutely gorgeous and the leather interior actually looks like real leather. Again, we wouldn’t spend $10,000 on this thing but if someone who had the money did it would be tough to fault them. While we will never own this model we are still holding out hope that a Chiron LEGO set will be introduced at some point in time, hopefully not with an accompanying price tag that stretches into the hundreds or thousands of dollars.
