    This set was a cool set and i have it on display in my house.
    They do need a piece of paper with spare parts per package number/ box. I missed 1 gear without noticing and had to rebuild the entire front part before the marriage. If they attempt something on this complexity again we need better safety.

    Thank you for the interesting review. Retail price right now in Germany roundabout EUR 299,--. A lot of Lego influencers here didn't like this model for the reasons you mentioned at the beginning of your article.

    Considering that TLG has factories in China, I don't believe it necessary to hack LEGO servers. Rather, they probably have a "mole" in the ranks that work those Chinese factories. Or, even pay someone at the publication/copyright office. Corporate espionage is much easier for the Chinese. Lepin simply needs to pay the right person that works at those factories. It's worth noting that the Chinese knock-offs didn't really start until TLG started building their factories in China. Not that hard to steal the "bad" molds that TLG rejected and use them for Lepin. Likewise, it's trivial for a Chinese worker to walk off with a box and sell it to Lepin.

    Simon, I love your review. It really is impressive.

    I'm a seasoned Technic builder and couldn't wait to get this model. Now that I'm building it, I reached a step that has me frustrated. I normally follow the instructions and never find an issue I can't figure out, but this one got me. How could I reach you to discuss the step?

    Thank you for your time and review,

    Tincho

      Glad to hear you liked the review. As to reaching me, why not use the Forum? Post your problem in Help, and if I can't solve it, perhaps someone else can...
      Take care,

    Like the review I have the porsche and really liked building it am thinking of going for this one just need to think about the cost and do I want it that much. I normally go for the construction and truck models, but do like the build of the car models. It is a hard one, may get it still on the bench at the moment undecided.

    Excellent review and gave me a lot of incentive to go ahead and build it!! I bought the kit right away but all of a sudden on Eurobricks the mods started to pour in so I waited. They are all done and I chose pimp my Bugatti. Of course I have to keep this box...they went all out!! Thanks!

    An excellent review, which must have taken you a long time to research and put together. You also picked up on something which everyone else seems to have missed, that this set is designed for those who would never buy a Lego set.  It was an interesting point of view on which to base the review. I hadn't thought I was interested in this set, but now I am convinced - I just need to save up the money!
    • Glad you liked it, and I really appreciate you took the time to post about it. To be sure, it took 120 hours but I had great fun doing it. -smile-

      Take care,
      Simon

    wow! that is very detailed and objective; good work
    also it is a very impressive set, i must admit

    Great review Simon. It is long, but I appreciate the commentary/and tips along the way. I am also glad you decided to added the information at the end about the possible reason why release date was moved up. Any and all news between Lupin/Lego should be shared. 

    i personally believe LEGO's problem with Lupin is as a direct result of having begun mfg. production in China. I could be wrong, but I thought I read a long time ago that manufactures are required (or something to that effect) to provide their design's to Chinese government, whereby then allowing an identical China brand to be made/sold. I'll have to find where I read this. i know GM deals with this too. 

    I feel like LEGO did a better job with the car design than they did with the Porchse GT3 RS (front end exterior), and I am not really even a big Bugatti fan. 

    Lastly, I think there is a grammar fix needed, I think there are two words duplicated "The rear suspension is build is build twice, "

    Thanks again Simon.

      Hi, Tim, good to hear.

      The LEGO patent expired in 1989, so it is legal to manufacture interlocking bricks that are similar to LEGO bricks. That's not the problem. But copyright infringement or trademark violation is something else. LEGO has been fighting Lepin at least since December, 2016 (here), and they had their trademark recognized in China in November, 2017 (here). I am pretty sure we haven't seen the end of it, yet.

      I'll fix that error tomorrow. -smile-

      Take care,
      Simon

    I like this kind of reviews where, like Lego, "a lot of parts are put together".
    Not just the plain review but some history, context and facts. It's impressive how you tied up all together to get some of the conclusions.

    Very nice review thx a lot. I love the box design of this technic cars unbelieveble

    Lepin takes LEGO to court?! Ha! Good luck with that. Lepin didn’t start shipping until the second half of June btw.
    • 9 months, 3 weeks ago Simon (126978) Inventory Admin ADMIN
      If Lepin started shipping after June 1st, that would be really good news. I have one source claiming they started shipping May 31st, but no secondary confirmation. However, for copyright claims you only need one shipped manual. As to the announcement of the Lepin Bugatti on alibaba, I have seen screenshots from May 30st, so that is certain, and it seems very unlikely that Lepin got hold of a VIP release that started shipping on May 16th, and managed to replicate the entire set, including new parts and new colors, in less then 14 days.

    Basically, 90% of the review is a description of the building instruction.
    And we got 3 lines on the functions and how they work. Ok, next.
  • 9 months, 3 weeks ago Aniomylone (8837) MOC Designer
    This is definitely the most ridiculous introduction I have ever read in a review.
    42083 is not a terrible set, but certainely not a work of art either...
  • 9 months, 3 weeks ago ruspartisan (2350) MOC Designer
    I have mixed feelings about this set. I have two main problems about it:
    1) I don't like Bugatti Chiron, mostly the looks of it, but also I'm more of a Koenigsegg fan:)
    2) The set feels that it's not as good as it can be. It has some holes here and there (especially bonnet), problems with front suspension, cheaty engine design. It should have this engine:  https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-14171/Didumos/18-scale-w16-engine/#comments and already mentioned pimp up mods https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-16181/jb70/42083-pimp-up-my-bugatti/ out of the box. I mean, isn't it frustrating for the owners to know, that it took only 2-3 weeks for a man with only Lego Digital Designer or some other CAD  (as far as I know, he does not even have a set) to design BETTER 8 speed gearbox? Lego should have done a better job, I think.
    • 9 months, 3 weeks ago Lorenzo92 (3189) MOC Designer
      The suspension “issues” were intentional. Even in the instructions does it show the wishbones pre-compressed. The real Chiron doesn’t have playful suspension either because any bump at 400km/h will wreck the car. And, there is absolutely no way they could even have missed the “bad suspension” during their two year development.
  • Great review, this blew me away. I wish I had the money to get this set. Start saving now and hope I get enough together before it's retired (or Lego are forced to stop selling it! Bloody Lepin!)
  • 9 months, 3 weeks ago JenArtiste (2241) MOC Designer
    Very impressive research and review, thanks!
    • 9 months, 3 weeks ago Simon (126978) Inventory Admin ADMIN
      Good to hear! This is actually the first LEGO review I have ever written, and the first time ever trying to make photographs of LEGO, so I really appreciate all the feedback I get. Thanks!
      • 9 months, 3 weeks ago gregdluck (178)
        Yes, I agree a good review and good advice on building tips and instructions to lego on extra pieces and building technics. I also built it and think it is great. I would like to know how to use the transmission now that it is complete.
        • 9 months, 3 weeks ago Simon (126978) Inventory Admin ADMIN
          If you put the gear switch in forward, roll the wheels, and then if you shift up using the pedals, the cylinders move slower, if you shift down they move faster. At least, that's what they do in my version... -smile-
