Re: Recap of the English F1 fleet - Take 2...

Just noticed they peeled on the US emissions compliance decals off 028. When you think about what it cost to get them, especially the one for California, that's a bit shocking.

EDIT: Scratch that, I wasn't looking at the right spots.

Did they remove that stripe for cleaning the windscreen wiper off the glass too?

I'd never noticed the wiper detail before, and yes it was still there

I think that is an addition from the Japanese owner - they have more quirky car mods over there than anywhere. It would be the first thing I removed from the car.

So is it just being stored, getting serviced or is it actually for sale?

Re: Recap of the English F1 fleet - Take 2...

The car was recently involved in the transaction for the purchase of an important Ferrari being acquired by its previous owner with the assistance of DK Engineering, and was used as a partial trade. It is already sold to a new owner who will keep it in the UK.

Here's a picture of the Ferrari - not a bad choice.

Re: Recap of the English F1 fleet - Take 2...

First I thought that hmmm What Ferrari would be better than F1, after seen the image; I can now understand a bit better.
But interesting history indeed, it would be nice to hear was the Ferrari cheaper than sold F1.
And....Erik what is that Ferrari anyway, the specific model?

Greg:
Great images, fantastic.

The Ferrari was considerably more expensive than the McLaren F1 - it is indeed a 1958 250 Testa Rossa, chassis 0754.
