Evaluation: Offered directly from the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team (formerly known as Racing Point, formerly known as Racing Point Force India, formerly known as Sahara Force India, formerly known as Spyker). Competed in all 19 rounds of the 2011 Formula One season with eight top 10 finishes, the best being sixth in Singapore. Driven by Paul di Resta and Nico Hülkenberg.
Very uneven surfaces for an F1 race car. Poorly repainted wheels and tires wrapped in a plastic sheet. Clean driver’s seat but the Schroth harness look aged. No obvious damage repairs. Does not include the Mercedes V-8 engine or the 7-speed gearbox it competed with. It’s garage art.
Bottom Line: And expensive garage art at that. But modern F1 cars are some of the most complicated, precisely engineered machines this side of a fighter jet, so even if it did have a powertrain installed the new owner still likely couldn’t do much other than look at it and have friends hop in the seat. This price is in line with what other F1 rollers have sold for recently. It was realistically estimated by Bonhams, and realistically bought.
