Yes, that’s correct, you could buy a used F1 race car. For the right amount of cash, any regular guy or gal can shop online and find the perfect used racer to suit his or her needs.
I discovered this fact while reading about a car for sale: a Red Bull RB3 Formula One race car that was driven by Australian Mark Webber during the 2007 season. The car didn’t do particularly well that season, but it would sure be enough to wow your friends and win a trophy or two at your local track day.
The above 2001 Jaguar F1 car is also for sale.
There are two catches, though, when shopping for a used F1 car:
- They are incredibly expensive (upward of $400,000 for the RB3).
- Sometimes they don’t include an engine (this is the case with the Jag).
For those of us without an F1 budget, but with the desire for speed, check out one of these used cars that’ll fight the good fight on track day.
And probably come with an engine, too.
