Supercar Made From Scrap Metal Out of A Breakers Yard
Most people when their car is coming to the end of the road will trade it in for scrap, but this guy is not most people. A 48 year old amateur mechanic & Top Gear fanatic does the exact opposite building a brand new car out of the unwanted metal pieces of previous cars, appliances, and anything he can get his hands on.
Now ordinarily speaking it would be a great achievement for someone to build a car out of scrap metal, but what about if we told you he made a £5million supercar? Well Jacek Mazur from Poland has done exactly that making a McLaren F1 replica which can hit speeds of up to 200mph. He built the car using parts from several scrapped cars and he did so for a cost of approximately £20,000, not bad for a part time mechanic! If you’re after a supercar and are working under the budget of a few million pounds then you may well want to be getting Jacek’s number.
The McLaren F1 has been built using a powerful Audi engine, the breaks from a Mercedes and a streamlined outer shell which he spent hours online researching in order to replicate to an extremely high standard. Just to add a quirky touch Jacek also added a small seat in the back which he states is for Top Gear co-host Richard Hammond, his favourite TV show which he said “I named it the Hamonda in his honour. It is the same size as for a child but I’m sure Richard could be a fit”.
The McLaren F1 isn’t the only car that Jacek has created, he’s somewhat of an addict to replicating fast cars with his collection also inclusive of a Lamborghini Countach, a Pontiac Fiero, a black Lamborghini Countach and a red Lamborghini Countach, and it’s pretty safe to say he likes his Countach’s!
