22This McLaren F1 replica was built from scrap by a Top Gear fanatic

If Field of Dreams had been made about an automotive enthusiast, its most famous line would need to have been, "If you build it, they will come... and then build their own replicas of yours."

Decades ago, a dominant Formula One team made a few dozen examples of a sports car that was as devastating on the track as it was on the road, and as such, it has become highly sought-after by collectors willing to pay millions – even tens of millions – for the privilege of ownership.

You'd think that the extreme performance, engineering and technology of hybrid hypercars like the McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder would appeal to a guy like Gordon Murray.

Speaking of those Porsches, nine of the top ten slots in the top

1818 McLaren F1s gather for owners club meet in Tuscany

It's not every day that you see a McLaren F1 on the road. Seeing two in the same place is the approximate automotive equivalent to seeing a leprechaun riding a unicorn. But eighteen? We were recently at the McLaren factory in Woking, and while there were a few notable examples on display or hidden in this corner or that, we still didn't see that many of them there. That's what makes this video so remarkable.

50Crashed McLaren F1 is the saddest way to see its beautiful underbody

47Polish man builds McLaren F1 replica in his shed

A Polish man, Jacek Mazur, describes himself as an amateur mechanic. We think that's an understatement, based on what he built - an pretty awesome replica of the legendary McLaren F1. This isn't some Fierorarri type deal, either.

That's about $810,000 US at current rates; in 1995, however, while the pound-to-dollar exchange rate was about the same as today, the automotive world hadn't got used to there being a new million-dollar car announced or launched every quarter.

53UK man sells his McLaren F1 for over $5.5 million
