Fancy Buying Jenson Button's F1 Car?

eBay / 29 Comments

It's now up for sale on eBay.

Former F1 champion Jenson Button has an enviable collection of supercars. The British racing driver owns a Ferrari Enzo, Mercedes CLK DTM AMG, and Audi RS6, and has previously owned a Ford GT, Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari 550 Maranello. But he's never had an F1 car parked in his garage. That opportunity now exits for anyone with a spare £75,000 handy, which is exactly what one eBay seller wants for Button's Honda RA106-4 2006 F1 car.

While the carbon monocoque chassis comes fitted with the correct DCT gearbox, it is lacking one key component: the 2.4-liter V8. Despite that minor issue, the RA106-4 comes loaded with heritage. It finished third in the 2006 Malaysian Grand Prix, fourth in Bahrain and 11th in Monaco, and was later used as a full-scale wind tunnel test car. So if you can get hold of an engine, you can transform the rolling chassis into something that will give you a lifetime of fun at motorsport events across the world. Hat tip to Paul!
