An experienced mechanic has created a copy of the supercar Sauber Mercedes C9

An enthusiast from South Africa himself created a replica project of the legendary German supercar Sauber Mercedes C9. The car received a weight of only 1,000 kg and a powerful six-cylinder V-engine.

Spending long hours searching for decent information online, we saw a lot of car copies – whether in our country or in other parts of the world. While some are as good as the official replica of the Batmobile, which was once sold, some were usually terrible, such as the Pontiac GTO, which is desperately trying to be Italian Aventador.

This time, we got a surprisingly exact copy of the German Sauber-Mercedes C9 supercar from South Africa. The car was built by an experienced mechanic named Johan Ackermann.

The Sauber-Mercedes C9 replica project began in 2011, when Mr. Ackerman himself developed the entire vehicle design, including the chassis. This is a pretty good copy that looks great, and at first we were fooled a bit, believing that this is really the race car that once conquered the legendary Le Mans 24 hours race.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

This fake copy of the Sauber-Mercedes C9 is not only for racing – you can ride it on public roads … but only in South Africa.

For the uninitiated Sauber-Mercedes C9 was the car on which the brand was able to return to motor racing. Sauber-Mercedes C9 made history in 1989, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours race. He also dominated five races at the 1988 World Championships.

The fake Sauber-Mercedes C9 is equipped with a 3.2-liter twin-turbo V6 that delivers 322 horsepower, and the car weighs only 1,000 kilograms. The maximum speed is 300 km / h.
