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.

12$64M Ferrari 250 GTO could be a fake

Remember that Ferrari 250 GTO that we reported on last week, supposedly listed on mobile.de for $64 million? Well, don't go putting down your deposit just yet, because it might be a fake.

54GM restricting Camaro Z/28 parts so you can't build yourself a clone

Chevrolet is apparently making it harder to experience even parts of its $75,000, track-biased Camaro Z/28. The entire 500-car production run for the 2014 model year is already either sold or at least reserved by dealers. And it will be months before assembly of the roughly 2,500-car, 2015 model-year run will begin. In theory, though, couldn't someone buy the components that make the Z/28 so special from the Chevy catalog and assemble a clone? Not so fast. It seems GM is one step ahead.

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.

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.

46Daimler crushes unauthorized Mercedes-Benz 300 SL body

Replica carmakers take notice: Daimler will not tolerate copies of its signature Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. At all. And if you fail to heed this warning and build a full-size replica of a 300 SL gullwing, justice will come down like three tons of bricks upon your unlicensed creation.

13Cheetah goes extinct. Again. [UPDATE]

Ah, the Cheetah – the American sportscar that never was to be. Looking like the voluptuous result of a one-night stand between a Chevrolet Corvette and a Lotus Seven, the Cheetah was conceived as a Chevy-backed answer to the Shelby Cobra. Unfortunately, the factory suffered a devastating fire back in 1965, General Motors pulled its support and the dream faded away.

65Man building Ford GT90 concept car homage in his garage

One of our all-time favorite concept car from Ford remains the GT90. As a modern interpretation of the Ferrari-besting GT-40, the GT90 offered all of the early '90s angles we could stand along with a 750-horsepower V12 engine and a theoretical top speed of 235 miles per hour.

30Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Pink Panther cars up for auction

Television and movie memorabilia fans can get excited. Both the original Pink Panther car and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang are headed to auction. The Panthermobile has been to auction once before since being created in 1969 by Jay Ohrberg. You may remember the designer as the mind behind hardware like K.I.T.T., the Back to the Future DeLorean, the General Lee, the Ford Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch as well as Batmobiles from both 1966 and 1989. This was a busy guy. The Panthermobile is expected

31Russian hand-builds world's meanest SLR McLaren

Russia is Shangri La if you're into crazy men building mean-looking one-off supercars in their garages. OK, supercar might be a bit of an exaggeration, considering this home-built Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR replica probably rides on old Lada running gear, but look at it.

42Corolla-based F430 replica not the worst Ferrari copy we've seen, sadly

Let's say you wanted to create a replica Ferrari. Your first move would undoubtedly be to acquire a Pontiac Fiero, but what if you lived in an area where Fieros are actually mythical beasts? Executive Modcar Trendz of India turned to one of the best-selling cars on the planet; the Toyota Corolla to create the one-off F430 you see here.
