In general, Formula 1 cars do not usually go on sale. When they do, depending on their sporting record and the pilot or pilots who have been put at the controls, it will have a higher or lower value. However, it is difficult for you to buy them for the cost of a new premium sedan. A month ago, this is what happened and a Formula 1 was sold for less than 61,000 euros.

The event in question was held within the framework of the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​2022, between June 23 and 26, and was organized by the famous auction house bonhams. In the sale many classic cars from manufacturers as prestigious as Ferrari, Jaguar, Aston Martin or Mercedes.

Among these cars (some not so classic), a single-seater Formula 1, a Force India-Mercedes VJM02 of the year 2009 which had an estimated sale price of between 60,000 and 90,000 pounds (70,000-105,000 euros). If this price is already very low considering that you are buying a car that has participated in the Formula 1 World Championship, you should bear in mind that it ended up being sold for 51,750 pounds (60,790 euros).

At the wheel of this car are drivers such as Giancarlo Fisichella, Adrian Sutil or Vitantonio Liuzzi, among others. It was used in the tests of the 2009 season and came directly from the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team, accumulating a total of 4,421 kilometers. It does not include the motor, but it does include the flywheel, so at such a low price it could have been worth the investment.
