A genius mechanic from Bosnia and Herzegovina has spent two years building his very own Formula 1 car from scratch.

After attending a car event in Belgrade, supercar fanatic Misho Kuzmanovic decided to make his childhood dreams come true by constructing his own race-car. Misho worked long days and nights to complete his passion project, putting in more than 1,000 hours of labor – and spending an estimated £20,000 in the process.

Now, Misho’s efforts have been rewarded as he can drive the vehicle around his hometown, Prnjavor, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, after making it fully road-legal.

“My Formula car as it is, isn’t identical to the Formula 1 car. It is built from my own vision, from my own aspiration" says the supercar fanatic. “The main construction and design was all done by me. My friends and family helped me as well."

While the vehicle can reach top speed of about 100 miles per hour, Misho, who has been dubbed as “Misho Schumacher" in his local town, says he built the car for enjoyment, rather than racing. He admits that the car’s overall weight is too much for the 100 horsepower engine.

Misho also admits that he had to install a second seat in the vehicle, since his wife was questioning his intentions.

How about that - a Formula 1 car for the whole family!
