Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, Lego McLaren, Gordon Murray T.50s: Today’s Car News

Money can buy horsepower and speed. Thankfully, it can also buy plenty of gas. The 1,480-hp, track-focused Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport has received EPA fuel-economy ratings, and it’s no surprise they’re atrocious. At 8 mpg city, 13 highway, and 10 combined, the Chiron Pur Sport will drink fuel as fast as it blasts down the pavement.

The McLaren Senna GTR has been immortalized in Lego form. The British automaker gave its blessing for the latest Lego Technic kit, which will go on sale in January 2021 for $49.99. That’s a relative bargain considering the Lamborghini Si├ín FKP 37 kit costs $379.99.

Gordon Murray Design Technical Director Frank Coppuck has confirmed that two T.50 supercars will be crashed in the name of safety. Only 11 prototypes are slated while the production run calls for just 100 cars. Crash testing is one of the necessary steps every road-legal car needs to undergo to be certified.
