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." More evidence of that comes from Polish amateur mechanic Jack Mazur, who decided to build a copy of his dream car, the McLaren F1.

AddWatch Poland's MiG-29s take to the skies in Fulcrum Drivers II

It use to be that seeing a MiG-29 Fulcrum screech across the sky was an unheard of event. Then, communism came to an end, and the elusive fourth-gen fighter suddenly was in the hands of a number of US allies. Slowly but surely, its exposure increased, until videos like this started to pop up. This is Fulcrum Drivers II, the creation of MiG-29 pilots at the Polish Air Force's 22nd Airbase, in Malbork.

86Koenigsegg supercar crash in Poland injures at least 17 [w/videos]

At least 17 people were injured over the weekend when a driver at Poland's Gran Turismo Polonia event lost control of his Koenigsegg and crashed into the crowd. Video of the accident (scroll down to view, though be warned some scenes are graphic) shows the driver piloting his supercar down a straight stretch of closed-off road in front of spectators at high speed when it veers off to the right, hits a curb and plows into a group of spectators that included children before spinning around 180 deg

38Fiat builds 1 millionth 500, still a ways to go before passing original

There are now 1.1 million examples of the new Fiat 500 cruising the roads of 83 countries, one million of them made at the Fiat's Tychy plant in Poland, the rest in the Fiat plant in Toluca, Mexico. It's taken 69 months since the car's 2007 launch to reach the milestone, the capstone hatchback being an Abarth 500.

53Watch bystanders try to put out fire on transporter full of new Volkswagens

Watching a small fire that no one can stop from becoming a big fire is like watching a train wreck in Super Slo-Mo. That is the spectacle we get from a rural two-lane road in Poland when a transporter truck hauling seven Volkswagen Passat wagons catches flame.

51Arrinera reveals first Hussarya images, details [w/video]

Over the past four years, weve been updated semi-regularly on the progress of Poland's Arrinera supercar which, up to now, has been a shiny black chunk of origami. We're surprised to discover that four years into the project, Arrinera has held on to its drawing board, and the company went back to it to turn the A.H.1 prototype into the Hussarya.

17Arrinera supercar born out of Polish Lamborghini replica? [UPDATE]

If you thought it seemed a little odd that Poland – a country without much of a history of producing exportable cars – would suddenly come out with a high-performance supercar, well... we're afraid you may be right. Because the latest reports out of the Eastern European country suggest that the Arrinera project is nothing more than a reclothed replicar.

14Drifting returns to its mountain roots... in Poland

We'll be honest: We miss drifting. Not the polished, sponsor-laden, energy-drink soaked Formula D. We miss the seedy internet shaky-hand cam videos of Japanese drivers slinging their hand-built machines up the mountain side in the middle of the night. Poland, of all places, has sought to marry the worlds of professional, sanctioned drifting with the thrill of taking on a public road. The pairing of a hill climb with drifting may seem odd, but trust us when we say it works. With fans lining the c

34GM to build Cruze and other Chevy models in Europe?

Automotive News reports General Motors may begin manufacturing the Chevrolet Cruze in Europe. The vehicle would likely be produced at an Opel plant in Poland, while a handful of other Chevrolet models may see their production move elsewhere in Europe. The move is said to be the first step toward moving GM European operations toward profitability. The automaker would pull some production out of South Korea, which would then free up the company to proceed with cost-cutting measures at Opel. Automo

28Mustang Club of Poland returns with musical number

A little less than a year ago, the Mustang Club of Poland shocked us with an amazing fan-made video documenting some of the organization's headier hardware. Now the club is back with a different sort of video. The director has managed to direct the entire crowd to craft a Stomp-style musical sound collage made up of the various clicks, chimes, slams, squeaks, roars and honks of a crowd of very stylish ponies. We'd rather watch the cars prowling around the cramped streets and open countryside of

52Poland's Arrinera supercar rolls onto unsuspecting streets

At the end of May we got renderings of a hi-po, scissor-doored coupe out of Poland, produced by Arrinera. Now we have video of the car on the streets. Its front end and side profile are very Lambo-reminiscent, but the wild rear end is new, different, and cool. Unfortunately, we don't get a quality sound-check from the 638-horsepower GM engine stuffed behind the cabin, but at the very least the car is real, and that's a good start. Follow the jump to watch the Arrinera supercar bring out the gawk

5Fiat Powertrain Technologies to buy General Motors stake in Polish engine plant

One of the last vestiges of the aborted partnership between Fiat and General Motors is coming to a close. An engine plant in Bielsko-Biala, Poland, has been jointly owned by GM and Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT). FPT has reached an agreement with GM to buy out the American company's stake.

AddPolish re-engineered Cree SAM to roll again?

It had seemed like the Swiss-born psycho-looking three wheeler from Cree had died in 2003 when the company closed its doors but now comes word that the "SAM" project has been adopted by a Polish company and may be rolling out of factory doors soon. Just like Steve Austin, after the crash and burn, the SAM is coming back stronger, faster, and with a bionic eye lithium-polymer batteries for a longer range. Impact Automotive Technologies (IAT) of Pruszków, Poland claim to have re-engineered
