NICOLAS OTAMENDI is living life in the fast lane while spending days stuck indoors due to coronavirus.

The Manchester City star has put his time to good use by crafting the fastest car in the world, the Bugatti Chiron - using Lego.

The real thing, which boasts 1500 horse power, has a top speed of 260mph and can do 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds, costs around £2.5million.

But on the official Lego website you can purchase the same kit Otamendi has for a relative snip at £329.99.

Money might be no object but you will need vast reserves of patience to finish this mammoth 3,599-piece model.

It is not clear how long it took Otamendi to complete the puzzle but he went through at least nine costume changes in his brilliant time-lapse video.

Otamendi wrote alongside the video: "Quarantine days with @lego #StayAtHome."

Fans left some funny comments in response to the clip.

One requested: "You should build the Etihad stadium."

Another said: "Honestly don't know how you could be a***d mate I get annoyed at the small boxes of Lego."

A fellow user wrote: "Wow Nico that looks amazing."

Another made fun of the time-lapse element of the video by writing: "Bulls**t this... I've never seen you move that fast!"

The level of detail that has gone into the Lego model is really quite something.

For example, it features a "fully functioning eight-speed gear box" according to the official website.

And the dashboard is a mirror image of the real life version, with the car's instructions said to be an exact replica of the real thing.

On top of that, the W16 engine in the model is "the most sophisticated Lego engine yet".
