What do you get when you have a few guys with a lot of time on their hands and a box of LEGO Technic pieces? You get a fully functional Bugatti Veyron built with seven gears. This is truly enough technicality to put any gearhead into a state of euphoria.

This creation has everything: a fully functioning gearbox (7 gears + reverse), a mechanical hardtop, a functioning hood, and a bunch of technical stuff that makes us gawk in awe.

It isn’t worth $1.6 million like its actual full-scale version, but this LEGO Bugatti Veyron is a thing of beauty, and the fact that they managed to squeeze seven gears in there is just the icing on the cake.
