Ultimate Essex boy racers Russ Bost and Mark Harrison are turning heads with their incredible homemade racing cars - which have a top speed of 170mph and go from 0 to 60 in just 3.5 seconds.
They get an 'unbelievable' response driving the sports cars - which were built from scratch - through the streets of Epping.

Mr Bost, 56, has built a red Ferrari car to mimic the expensive sports model driven by Spanish racing driver Fernando Alonso.

He has also created a blue Red Bull car for friend Mark Harrison, who is a fan of German champion Sebastian Vettel.
