this guys are offering different kit cars for the fiero most of them are the usuals 308, countach etc.
but one thing that got my attention is that they are also offering a mclaren f1, so i was wondering if any of you have

True.. but even still. Thats a lot for a kit car. The other thing is no engine that can be conventanly dropped into a fiero for an affordable price can match the power of the McLaren F1. At least with a 355 kit you can make it preform like the real thing.. even still it looks like a great looking kit.

$6500? That's not a lot really. Most real/good kits go for at least that much. The Fiero Fiberglass Lizardo kit goes for $7000 for just the panels. I'd be hesitant to say you can make a Fiero perform like a Ferrari. They are entirely separate beasts. WIth the Northstar and a Spintech muffler, though, you can get pretty close to sounding like a Ferrari. Of course, I've only seen one car that does sound anywhere near a Ferrari. You can put an engine that cranks out 600+ hp in a Fiero if you want. There are even BMW V12 swaps going on, and the McLaren has a BMW V12 (albeit a different type). But between having some fool on the street scuffing up my $2 million dollar McLaren, out of which only a hundred cars were even made, vs. a $20K kit car… I'd choose the latter.

i dont think those replicas are expensive, but i havent seen the quality neither
their bussiness its a 10 hour trip from mu city lol.
anyway my question is if anybody know if someone in the U.S. or other country its also making replicas
of the mclaren.
by the way in the same page there is another guy sellin the panels of a countach for 20,000 pesos and by the pics its looks good

Even if they had the right intentions you send them a 5k deposit they will piss it up and the advertising will disappear along with your deposit.

That's not so. LS3 with MAST heads, or twin turbo LS4 either one can stomp the McLaren F1. I have a buddy with a single T76 on a junkyard LM7 running high 9s in the 1/4 mile. NO McLaren can do that. The issue isn't the power, it's the cost of the NSX 5-speed transaxle conversion to hold it.
