Just about a week ago, I built a version of Bugatti’s W16 engine for its new wonder, the Chiron. Lego announced that it will be releasing a Technic version of this beast, and to date it promises to be the largest Official Technic set ever. That put W16’s on the mind….
The main fault of my last version is that it had two crankshafts…. And here I fixed that. Also, all cylinders are on the same plane, and ½ cylinder offset and direction is all accurate to the real thing. Configuration is more "W" or at least "V" like than the previous version. Runs quite a bit smoother and less friction compared to the old. As the old version, Technic figure-scaled as well. Probably too small for TLG’s version (42083) but I think it would be great for like a 1/10 scale model or something.
Very nice! It looks well proportioned and works very smoothly. I hope the official LEGO Technic Chiron engine to be different than the one we see in the teaser video, wich looks very bad and doesn't seem to have only one crankshaft. Anyway, waiting to see if you build the Chiron around that engine :) 5/5
That's a very cool looking engine. Bet it can deliver lots and lots of power to the Chiron :-D Oh, and the video runs fine on a standard Windows PC. Nice to see it working in that video, shows you put a lot of thought into how to construct it :-)
Yea, I have not kept up with new formatting rules/forms for mocpages. First iframes were accepted, then not, and now my current method is not. By no means am I all that computer savvy, so if there is a better way to embed videos feel free to let me know.

Fun build with smooth action! Video embedding didn't work on my Android phone, as usual, but I got to the video via the original's page and your YouTube channel.
I just love Lego versions of engines. I didn't realize that was how the Chiron engine was configured though. Is it it a completely different engine than the one in the Veyron? It did they just build that one up to 1500 hp?
