Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at the Lego Group , said: "This life-size model is a first of its kind in so many ways and with it, we wanted to push the boundaries of our own imagination. For over 40 years, Lego Technic has allowed fans of all ages to test their creativity with a building system that challenges them to go beyond just creating new designs, to also engineering new functions. 

"Our Technic designers and the engineers from the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic, the place which also builds the impressive models for Lego Stores and Legoland parks, have done an amazing job both at recreating the Chiron’s iconic shapes and making it possible to drive this model. It’s a fascinating example of the Lego Technic building system in action and its potential for creative reinvention."
