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 destroked 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 which is built by DDR Motorsport from Florida ( the company calls this kind of shell Grullon GT).
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 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 750Kg we end up with a tremendous Monster that will certainly threaten various records as it continues its evolution…
