Yup, that’s right you can now buy a Formula 1 car on eBay. Specifically it’s the 1994 title-winning Benetton that Michael drove that season. But you get more for your money than just the car – the guy gives you a lot of extra things as well like several spare parts, including two extra sets of wheels and tires, and its data laptop, to monitor the fluid levels and temperatures. He also says it’s ready to race on the track with the same performance as back in ’94. As often the case with these things you can’t find out a specific amount of BHP but I reckon it’s somewhere north of 700. So expect a pretty big backache when you get out of it. It received 184 bids until know with the top one at a staggering 2.3 million quid. But that isn’t all. Only the transport will cost you 10.000 quid. Supposedly it’s going to arrive on a bed of roses with 3 naked lap-dancers in the truck. So, if some of you fancy a nice gift for your kid this Christmas you’re pretty well catered for.
