This 1/2 scale McLaren CanAm could be yours
Say hello to the first ever 1/2 scale McLaren M8 “High Wing”. Creators Putsch Racing describe it as “a perfect gift for a young racer, or a fun pit vehicle indulgence that would be at home on the kart racing track too” – we just think it’s damn cool!
Powered by a 4 stroke overhead valve engine lifted from a racing kart, Putsch are quick to note that this thing is seriously simple and low-cost to maintain – perhaps that’s the first time such words have been used in relation to racing?
Surprising is the fact that it’s rated to fit an adult of up to 6’1″, and even more surprising is that this particular model runs for ‘only’ USD$12,500! Putsch explain that they can build 1/2 scale CanAm cars from around $9,500, and that recreations of cars such as the 6-wheel Tyrrell F1 car, the Shadow and Ferrari 312pb would also be possible. Imagine the possibilities!
