Bugatti Chiron made of clay, plaster and duct tape. They built a car in the shed

  • It took a team of one of the best Vietnamese car experts to create a spectacular replica of the Bugatti Chiron in 365 days.
  • The magnitude of the task presented is impressive, although the final effect is – diplomatically speaking – so-so.
  • In reality, however, it is easy to correct.

The creators of the unusual replica deserve great thanks not only for their passion and the magnitude of their work, but also for their skill. They independently – using the simplest tools, such as a welder electrode – created the air frame or suspension elements.

The action scenes on the body work are very interesting in the film. Car shapes were first made of clay based on the remaining metal skeletons, the filling of which, that is, the base of the clay, was … adhesive tape.

On the resulting model, shaped in hours, liters of gypsum mass were poured, which was strengthened by a cleverly constructed exoskeleton. In this way, after removing the clay filling, a hard hoof was created, which was used to imitate the shape of the body of polyester resins reinforced with glass fibers. Then the entire plaster shell had to be broken and removed, and the resulting body was finally made with putties. Everything required titanic work.

At our own expense, in addition to the frame made of steel profiles, we also created, for example, things like adjustable wishbones, suspension – an engine found from an old Toyota or – attention – brake discs!

While you may laugh at the cottage-style ways of handling the problem, it’s impossible to deny the car builders their stubbornness and ingenuity. The effect may not be perfect, but contrary to appearance – to significantly improve the appearance of the car, it will be enough to repaint it, or more precisely – better preparation of the body. “Flowing” shapes and shadows clearly indicate that the face was drawn incorrectly. However, due to the conditions … hats off!

However, this does not change the fact that the process of creating an unusual car is watched with bated breath. See for yourself!
