Long before McLaren ever built some of the most badass street cars on the planet, they were dominating high-end racing all over the world with some extraordinarily powerful and sleek machinery, like the M8B, which actually swept an entire season of the otherwise ultra-competitive CanAm series. They were exceptionally fast, but also kinda dangerous, and Bruce McLaren actually died in a later version. Now, a car restoration/race shop in Ohio's making versions you can actually handle: the half-scale McLaren M8 High Wing Racing Kart.

It's powered by an engine from a full-on racing kart — those gorgeous air intake stacks are just for show on this one — and features hydraulic disc brakes like a proper racer. It's not for kids, either: anyone can fit in it so long as they're under 6'1".
The tubular frame is entirely handmade, and the body's all fiberglass. And just like with the original McLaren, the rear wing sits way up high in clean air so it can be more efficient, but unlike the original McLaren, this one's actually attainable at only $12,500.
