11 of the Coolest Builds By Bored People With a Lot of Lego Bricks

There are a lot of reasons why Lego remains one of the world’s most popular toys, over 3,700, in fact: the number of unique Lego pieces that have been created over the decades.

Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport: When Less Is More & 16 Is The Magic Number

Weight reduction was the central theme behind the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport.Bugatti’s engineers also wanted the supercar to have more grip on the track.New wheels, tires, and a rear spoiler are among the performance treatments. The Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport is a perfect example of the “less is more” mantra. Bugatti has released multiple iterations of the Chiron since its debut in 2016, but the Pur Sport is the lightest, most track-focused Chiron to date. The new Chiron Pur Sport is no...

The new Chevy Corvette is going up against the world's greatest — and far more expensive — supercars. Here's a look at the competition.

The eighth-generation Chevy Corvette debuted with a much-anticipated mid-engine design. But the new Corvette Stingray also arrived with a stunning price tag, just under $60,000. Most of the world's mid-engine supercars cost much, much more.  Here's a rundown of the Vette's competition, from Ferrari to Lamborghini to McLaren to Porsche. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. "Mid-engine" and "affordable" aren't generally two concepts that show up in the same automotive sentence. M...

COLUMN- #Saudi Aramco's behaviour after IPO matters more than lofty $1.7 trillion valuation: Russell - Reuters

COLUMN-Saudi Aramco's behaviour after IPO matters more than lofty $1.7 trillion valuation: Russell - Reuters:The market focus on the valuation of Saudi Aramco’s initial public offering is similar to Bugatti Chiron owners focusing on their vehicles’ top speeds - interesting, but of little relevance.The $1.7 trillion upper value placed on the Saudi state oil company, the world’s largest crude exporter, will no doubt generate speculation as to whether it’s too high, and whether it will be viewed as...

2019 Kia Stinger & Limited-Edition Stinger GTS: Product & Performance Review

We saw the Kia Stinger for the first time at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nothing has changed since then. The 2019 Kia Stinger remains one of the best high-performance GT sedans for the money. When we first laid eyes on the Kia Stinger, it was transcribing a clear message to European sports sedans: the South Koreans have entered the fray and are set to disrupt the performance sedan market in a big way. NAIAS 2017 had a multitude of attractions, but for us, the Stin...

The Fuji X-H1: Mike's Verdict

It's human nature to chase extremes, to decide that one thing or another is "good" for some reason and then to keep exaggerating that quality or property. Consider how, in recent years, the fashion at Apple, Inc., has been to make everything thin, light, and stylish. But with personal vehicles, which in the USA now means SUVs and trucks*, the opposite extreme has become fashionable, to the point where single individual human beings feel it's reasonable to convey their fat butts to the hardware s...

The Fuji X-H1: Opinions and Impressions

Still Pond, Fuji X-H1 and XF 35mm ƒ/2 The culture of objects seems obsessed with excess these days. On one of the auto channels I watch, More Doug DeMuro, Doug answered the viewer question "what is the best car?" by proposing the "Bugatti" Chiron (I use the scare quotes because I know what real Bugattis were, and they weren't hypercars for oil sheiks built by Volkswagen). The Chiron is a two-door, two-seat mid-engined "sports" coupé with a 1,479-horsepower V-16 engine. Really? Is it fun on on...

Top 10 Fastest Cars in the World (2018)

There are many ways to judge how fast a car is. Acceleration is important; being able to jump from zero to 60 mph quickly is probably the most realistic performance benchmark, since we’re actually able to drive 60 mph on most highways. But there’s no better ultimate ranking factor than top speed – the most unrealistic, no holds barred, balls-to-the-wall stat a car can have. Even though we’ll probably never be able to actually achieve these speeds, top speed is the one that deserves the most brag...

Test Drive: Bugatti Chiron

From Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to Los Angeles in the luxurious supercar “I know you won’t believe me until you start to drive, but it’s a very docile car,” Bugatti pro-driver Butch Leitzinger, tells us as we get behind the wheel of the brand new Chiron. Without even starting the engine, the car is a dream—with its devastatingly soft, free-range cattle-upholstered seats. “People expect it to have a …

Lego built a driveable Bugatti Chiron out of blocks, and it’s amazing

Bugatti makes some of the fastest and most expensive cars in the world. You know what’s no as fast but probably as expensive? Building a full-size Buggati Chiron out of Lego pieces. That’s just exactly what Lego did, and it’s pretty amazing. It required over a million Lego Technic pieces, including 2,304 tiny motors. The top speed is only 18mph, but the fact that it moves it all – it weight 3,306 pounds, and again, is made out of Lego – still boggles my mind. It even has a working speedometer, l...

A full-scale Lego supercar that actually drives

Over the past few months, a team at Lego has been building a full-scale model of a Bugatti Chiron supercar using only Lego Technics pieces — aside from the wheels, tires, and a few other key components. They got the look of the car down, but the truly impressive thing is that the car actually drives, powered by an electric engine made up of over 2300 Power Function motors. The Lego press release has the details. The model is the first large scale movable construction developed using over ...
