The perfect father’s day gift for Singapore dads

Father’s Day is just around the corner. June 17 for those that need reminding. And it’s that time of year again when we’re all left racking our brains for that special elusive gift that says, ‘we love you.’

At Budget Direct Insurance we think we have the solution. A Bugatti sports car. Yeah, you heard right. That much-loved super car. You can’t go wrong, right? Only one slight hitch…it’s a steal at a mere $3.3 million and steal is probably the only way most of us could get our grubby hands on one of these sleek little babies.

BUT there is another way. Think outside the box – the LEGO box in this case and there you have it -  Bugatti the LEGO version.

LEGO House has just unveiled its new model which it is very proud of.

At $599 it’s not cheap but listen to what you get.

A 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron replica model – measuring over 14cm high, 56cm long and 25cm wide and featuring, wait for it… a mammoth 3,599 pieces. That’s a lot of building hours. Enough to keep your dad busy and out of trouble for a good few months we reckon. 

It is packed full of intricate details and immersive touches. These include aerodynamic bodywork with an active rear wing, spoked rims with low-profile tires, detailed cockpit with movable paddle gearshift, and detailed W16 engine with moving pistons.

Open the doors and you’ll discover the cockpit featuring an 8-speed gearbox with paddle gearshift and a steering wheel bearing the iconic Bugatti emblem. 

Each individual model comes personalised with its own unique serial number. And the set also features a speed key which enables you to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position. Whaaaaat? Yeah we know…

Hidden discreetly under the hood, you will also discover an additional authentic Bugatti Chiron detail – the stylish Bugatti overnight bag.

Niels B. Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group, said: “I am very excited about this new model. It’s a huge model that I can’t wait to start building myself. I’ve always been passionate about engineering and this model’s details and design are truly fascinating.”

Good luck with that mate!

The set includes a ’coffee table’ style collectors booklet with comprehensive building instructions. Breathe, stay calm and have patience. You WILL build that Bugatti.

We reckon it’s the perfect gift for dads. How to get your hands on it?

The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is retailing at SGD599.90, and a limited number of the models are available at LEGO Certified Stores islandwide and online stores - www.bricksworld.com/ and http://www.thebrickshop.com.sg
