Man Builds His Own McLaren F1 for $37K


When you don't have the cash to buy one, just build your own.

If you want to buy a McLaren F1, it’ll cost millions of dollars. But if you’re the handy type, you could just build your own for a far more reasonable $37.000. That’s exactly what a man from Poland has done. Jacek Mazur, a self-described amateur mechanic and "Top Gear" fan, has built many supercar replicas in the past including a Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari Testarossa based off a Pontiac Fiero.

The McLaren F1, however, is his greatest build yet, taking eight years to complete. Mazur claims it can hit a top speed of 200 mph thanks to its Audi V8. Amazingly, this is the third F1 replica he’s built. Another one is powered by a BMW V12 with 600 hp.

Mazur welded the chassis on his own and built the fiberglass body shell from scratch. He even built the seats, which sit three across with the driver in the center, just like in the real F1. There’s also a tiny fourth seat behind the driver called the "Hammond Seat," named after, you guessed it, Richard Hammond. So proud is Mazur of his work, he said that he wouldn't trade his creation for an actual F1. "Even if it’s just a replica, it looks like the real deal." We wholeheartedly agree. Well done, good sir, well done.
