McLaren F1 Evo with 1.7L Turbo Mitsubishi Engine
|| 600Hp/710Kg Monster
Publicado el 1 may. 2019
The target of tremendous interest from all the HillClimb Racing community in the beginning of this Season, this is the new Monster driven by Marek Rybnicek, a McLaren F1 GT powered by a 600Hp/9.500Rpm 1.7L 4G63 Turbocharged Engine. And was possible to see it in action last weekend at Rechberg in Austria, conquering a victory among the E2-Sh Class while being the third Fastest Touring Car present at the event. In what was pretty much its competitive debut...
So right now everyone should totally confused about this strange creation. So let´s clarify a few things. The only thing McLaren F1 about it is the outer shell. It is such a different machine from the original in fact, that even the official nomenclature for it is McF1 Evo, due to trademark issues. Said shell is built by DDR Motorsport from Florida ( the company calls this kind of shell Grullon GT) while the creation/construction of the whole car was performed by KOMVET Racing, who both maintains and owns this very unit. The chassis beneath comes from a Norma M20FC prototype, bringing with it the 1.7L 4G63 Mitsubishi Engine producing around 600Hp/9.500Rpm.
It uses a Sadev SLR82, 6 Speed Sequential racing transaxle Gearbox with paddle shift to transmit the power to the Rear Wheels. As is the case with the actual McLaren F1 curiously, it features central driving position and all this combined with the total weight of 710Kg we end up with a tremendous Monster that will certainly threaten various records as it continues its evolution...
