Everyone knows F1 cars are fast. But when they’re up against each other you don’t know just HOW fast they really are. So here’s an F1 up against a GT for some proof.
Kevin Thomas of Brighton, England, built a replica F1 car in his shed.
With a little motivation and much of his spare time, he got everything he needed from two cars and buying parts from eBay from F1 collectors. According to Auto123, Thomas spent $13,000 on his F1, but it still lacks a powertrain to finish his project, and he’ll probably opt for a 3.5-liter Formula Renault engine.
Remember the video we posted of Red Bull’s F1 show car revving its engine to the National Anthem?

The same show car drives through the Lincoln Tunnel at 190 miles an hour. The 1.5-mile tunnel goes under the Hudson River and connects Weehawken, New Jersey and Manhattan, New York City, and it looks like it only took a few seconds to go through.
