Thread: Mclaren F1

  1. #1

    Mclaren F1

    i have built 2 kits and have been party to 3 others, i have my opinions about the kit industry, but being new to this board, i want to ask for evryones input.

    i have been exploring the possibilities of splashing a mclaren.

    what do you think, want one?
    how much would you spend?

    i have looked at all sides of the build process, i want to be sure to be the best man in the industry for the customers.

    also, what sort of legal problems do you think i need to watch for?

    ask me any questions you have regarding chassis and build ect.

    anyone know where to sell a bodypart?

    I believe there is interested in an F1 kit.
    I don't know what I or anyone would spend but I would think it would be in line with the Diablo kits.
    I don't know how bad McLaren in regards to legal issues, but I don't think I would dare to take the risk.
    There is a replica of the F1 in the works now.

    I think the mclaren kits would have an appeal around the 40-65 k range, assuming the kits are built with good similarity to the exact car. What donor car are you thinking of using?

    well let's take a look at the legal aspect to this tag mclaren holdings legal team is backed by over 30 billion dollars so I dont think you would want to do a copy or talk about doing one I know from dealing with them in the past on my mc12 but my new mc14 is no where near there car anymore so I am out of the legal eye with them .but if you deside to do one keep it on the down low or they will come .hope this help's
