cant checkout. Says insufficient amount in stock
I can get one. Melbourne though, but out of my 5km lockdown.
There is stock in Frankston and yes u r allowed to travel to get a click n collect I doo it all the time it’s on the dhhs site
Is it essential? Do you have the specific link to compliance. I have a few click and collect items to pick up, but haven't yet.
80% through putting this set together right now, really good build
I really want this - But i just cannot justify this amount of money on Lego
Is it remote controlled? If so I’ll buy it
Afraid not. It's for display, not play.
There's plenty of examples of motorised Chiron MOCs on YouTube though and it doesn't even seem that difficult to do.
$456 with a giftcard I think gone .
Although they may keep producing to demand and not retire to take advantage of the pandemic conditions .
Would rather Rimac C2. Far quicker
This set was released back June, 2018, when the Chiron was the world's fastest production car.
The Rimac Concept Two is yet to have any of its claimed performance specs verified and no buyers have actually received one yet, moreover at 150 units planned for production (who knows if they'll hit that target), it also barely qualifies as a homologated production car. I'm sure it's an absolute monster like the Concept One was but the Chiron Super Sport 300+ achieved a much higher top speed (490km/h) than Rimac claim the Concept Two is capable of (~415km/h), so it'll be interesting to see what happens when the Concept Two is actually properly benchmarked.
The Chiron is still an unbelievable feat of engineering and nothing to sneeze at.
Rimac C2 does 0-100 in 1.9 seconds & the quarter mile in 9.1 seconds - far quicker than any Chiron. 99% of Chiron owners will never be able to test its top speed, so less practical than acceleration.
Nico Rosberg has already test driven the final production version & is simply waiting delivery of his, which was delayed due to the pandemic
Mate, no one buying a hypercar is going to be pushing them anywhere close to their limits because 99% of the buyers are pretentious tw*ts in Dubai, Los Angeles and London who use them to chauffeur their Russian mail-order brides around from luxury shopping districts to resort hotels.
The difference between 1.9 seconds and 2.4 seconds is barely perceivable (the average F1 winning margin last year was 7.7 seconds), whereas the difference between 415km/h and 490km/h is enormous, especially when you're in the driver's seat and that is the much, much harder technical accomplishment to pull off with cutting-edge engineering voodoo (especially for a car that weighs 2 tons).
Both cars deserve equal amounts of praise; silly EV/Tesla fanatics who get off on calling combustion engine cars "dinosaurs" (EVs were invented before the Benz Patent-Motorwagen) are people who will never understand the obsessive, perfectionistic insanity required to produce these vehicles, much less own anything more exotic than a Camry.
In fact I think Rimac are more notable for what they represent, rather than their cars; which is the democratisation of the automotive industry, in an era where small, fully independent start-ups can produce world-beating vehicles and build nearly 100% of them in-house.
