Michael Arndt was inspired by something else, he didn’t have the money to buy a Formula 1 car, so he made himself one. All it took was six years and 956,000 matchsticks and 1686 tubes of glue, to create his own full scale replica of McLaren’s 4/14 F1 car. is a man of matchsticks. This didn’t come in cheap, cause the cost is estimated at about 6000 euros. The car doesn’t have a working engine, but is still mobile, cause it can be broken down in 45 pieces for easy transport.
