It seems the work of the influencer Tavarish (it would not be the first McLaren that is up to), but this replica of a McLaren F1 LM recently auctioned via ebay, That barely lasted 10 days for sale, is actually a Porsche Boxster disguised as an exclusive supercar.
At first glance and if you don’t pay attention to details, maybe it could hit the mark, but the sound gives it away. The price? Compared to what a real F1 LM would cost, it’s not too bad. Compared to the original Boxster? It should be seen.
The replica, a consolation prize
Legend has it that Gordon Murray He was bored waiting to be able to get on a plane and while he was waiting in the departure lounge, he began to draw to kill time. From those sketches the McLaren F1 was born, which was presented to the world in 1992 and is still considered one of the best supercars in history today.
This car, which at the time of its launch was the fastest in the world (it reached 386.4 km / h), is a rare and coveted rarity. Only 106 units were produced, so when a McLaren F1 goes on sale, it sells in minutes.
More, if we talk about versions like F1 with LM specifications since only six units were manufactured to celebrate the victory of McLaren in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995. Five were sold and the sixth, orange (with which it ran Bruce McLaren), it is estimated to be worth three million euros.
Two years ago, at the Pebble Beach Contest of Elegance, a unit of the McLaren F1 with LM High Downforce Package specs became one of the most expensive McLarens ever sold by sledgehammer: was awarded for 17.8 million euros.
McLaren body, Boxster heart
For car lovers who do not have a checking account so large as to get one of these unicorns, the idea of settle for a replica it can be an alternative. Hence, the protagonist of the post has lasted so little for sale on ebay.
Under this orange casing so studied and faithful to the McLaren F1 is a Porsche Boxster that keeps the mechanics intact. The McLaren F1 GTR spoiler, the doors with the mythical butterfly opening, the headlights, the hood or even the interior are achieved, although other details such as the shape of the nose silhouette, the location of the exhausts, or the wheels they give him away. Not to mention the sound, which can be seen slightly in the videos uploaded by the seller.
Finally, this peculiar replica has been sold for the starting price: 51,000 pounds, which is about 59.500 euros to the current change. Compared to an original McLaren F1 it could compensate, but perhaps to the original car, Porsche lovers do not think the same.
