Fancy buying a Formula 1 car?

Have you ever fancied owning your own F1 car? If so, then a new addition to the listings on Crash Classifieds may be of interest.

In recent days, a showcar based on the 2002 BAR Honda as raced by former F1 champion Jacques Villeneuve and Olivier Panis has gone up for sale for just under £30,000.

While the car comes without an engine, it would be an amazing acquisition for a fan of F1, or could be used for a range of marketing or advertising purposes. What would look more impressive than to have your own F1 car kitted out in corporate colours?

If you'd prefer something a bit more 'down to earth' – and which also still runs – the how about this ex-BTCC Peugeot 307? Built by VLR, the car ran in the BTCC for a number of seasons and has most recently been seen in Britcar. Yours ready to race for £28,000.

Should your budget be a bit larger, the two additions to the Sportscars and GT listings may catch your eye.

Firstly, how about a Ferrari 430 GT3 that has taken numerous wins in the British GT Championship in the hands of Allan Simonsen and Hector Lester?

Or what about another car previously seen in the British GT arena? However this one is a much rarer beast in the shape of a Lister Storm, which also part in races in the FIA GT Championship and the Spanish national series.

However, it has to be said that our own personal favourite is a car with no racing history at all, that hasn't been driven by anyone famous and that will never have picked up a racing award.

Instead its located in the Track Day Cars section, although the car in question is road legal – and would be guaranteed to be a blast.

They say good things come in small packages, so our money would go on this Hayabusa-powered Mini, a car which would probably outpace a lot of machines that would cost a lot more money!

The remainder of listings can be found by visiting Crash Classifieds.
