Body designed by Zagato, panels shipped to ZA. Assembled & built by Hi-Tech automotive in PE. Same crowd that builds the Noble M400, Caroll Shelby licensed AC Cobra replica, GT40 & Caterham replicas.

Most are exported to the USA (by Superformace group who also install the motors in the states).

My friend with the Mclaren F1 imported it in partnership with Jim Price from hi-Tech, the purpose being to copy the front suspension for the M400.  The idea was to export it within a 12 month window, ass then import duties would not be payable. Peter then decided to retain the vehicle, paid the duties & bought out Jimmy's 50%.

Interesting bit of background, thanks. I'm glad I'm safe from having to say goodbye to an F1.
