F1 Cars for Sale: Fast, Good condition, 5000+ KM raced

Four Marussia F1 cars will be available for sale by private treaty with John Pye’s Luxury Assets department upon instruction from a private collector.

The grid cars, all with F1 competition provenance, are from the Virgin Marussia Formula Team and form part of an impressive collection spanning 2010 to 2013 F1 Grand Prix Seasons.

A unique opportunity to own a part of F1 grand prix grid history

John Pye Luxury Assets present a unique opportunity to acquire a quartet of Formula 1 World Championship Grand Prix Grid competition cars, upon instruction from a private collector and now available for sale by private treaty.

All with F1 competition provenance from the Virgin Marussia Formula 1 teams, these four cars form part of an impressive collection spanning the 2010 to 2013 F1 Grand Prix seasons. The cars are available for sale by private negotiation as a collection of four or as individual assets.

In 2009, Manor Grand Prix were awarded an Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) entry into Formula 1 for the 2010 Grand Prix season, forming part of a collaboration between successful junior racing team Manor Motorsport and Wirth Research.

Before the end of that year, these entities were established as Virgin Racing, after Richard Branson’s Virgin Group of companies bought the title sponsorship rights.

Marussia, the former Moscow based Sports Car manufacturers, were team constructors for their debut season.

In November 2010, Marussia Motors purchased a controlling stake in the team, and the team ecame known as ‘Marussia Virgin Racing’ for the 2011 season. Following the 2011 season, the team parted company with Wirth Research and entered a partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies
ahead of the 2012 season, relocating from the original base in Dinnington to the old Wirth premises in Banbury, Oxfordshire, UK.

In November 2011, the team applied to the Formula 1 commission to formally change their constructor name for the 2012 season from Virgin to Marussia, to reflect their new ownership.

Permission was granted before being formally ratified at a meeting of the FIA World Motorsport Council at its Paris Headquarters.

Within this collection of cars the vehicles are the latest models on the open market to feature the kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) introduced in 2009 and the drag resistance system (DRS)
introduced in 2011.
