If we could get a time machine and go a few years into the future (like the folks at Bugatti seem to have done with the Chiron), we think we'd see a future where, along with the Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056), this latest, hyper-realistic set from LEGO is commanding high prices on the resale market.
Like the Porsche 911, the Chiron will likely get discounted heavily before being discontinued, probably in 24-36 months. We can see prices going as low as the £200-250, IF you're willing to wait ...
