Mišo worked long days and nights to complete his passion project, putting in more than 1,000 hours of labour – and spending an estimated £20,000 in the process.And now, Mišo’s efforts have been rewarded as he can drive the vehicle around his hometown, Prnjavor, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, after making it fully road-legal.
Although his creation can reach a top speed of 250 km/h, Mišo Kuzmanović usually respect speed limits and has only taken it up to 175 km/h when driving on the highway.The unique vehicle is 6 meters long, weighs 1,28 tonnes and was designed to accommodate two passengers.
It meets all safety standards, and has various features like airbags, hydraulics for height adjustments and a powerful sound system. You might notice the tires aren’t those used on real F1 cars, and that’s because they’re really original aircraft tires.
