A Polish man has made a replica of one of the hottest supercars ever made, the McLaren F1, using scrap and spare parts and a V12 engine, signed by BMW.
When it comes to supercar replicas, Asians are keeping our headlines, but in this case, we are moving more to the west until we reach Poland, where we find a man and his passion for vehicles. 48-year old Jacek Mazur has spent approximately 20,000 GBP in order to create this impressive McLaren F1 replica. The money was spent on spare parts and materials and on a BMW V12 engine. The supercar in question has a Mercedes-Benz braking system too.
According to the creator of this McLaren F1 replica, his ride can reach a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h) which is not the 240 mph (386 km/h) achieved by the real supercar, but it’s not something we can ignore either. This isn’t the man’s only creation as he already made replicas of the Lamborghini Countach and the Porsche 911.
The real McLaren F1 has been produced in just 106 units, between 1992 and 1998, and it was coming in a 2-door coupe body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The F1 is taking its power from a 6.1 liter V12, producing 627 HP (468 kW), at 7,400 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 651 Nm (480 lb-ft), available at 5,600 rpm. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint takes just 3.2 seconds in the supercar and top speed stands at 240 mph (386 km/h).
