Yeah he's decided to sell this one , not many like this come up for sale as most wont have the original engine or electronics , with the spares package it makes this car a rare relatively usable proper V10 .
I was lucky enough to drive it a few years ago , unbelievable machine .

Do you know who made the electronics, data loggers and dash? It could have been my old company Pi Research.....or maybe someone else. It says Magnetti on the nose but in some cases they just sponsored the teams rather than supply. One of our track guys once got the pleasure of driving an Footwork Arrows car (few years old) after a season of track support. He over cooked it and took all four corners off the car. He got our Xmas Wally of the year award, not sure the owner was very impressed either.

I’m not sure about the dash but most of the electronics are Magneti Marelli including the ECU .
Jesus I bet he was popular ! Good story though .

OK, so I'm gonna ask the question everyone wants to know. If I was to 'Apply' what would the Price be?

It would be interesting to know what price you think it is ,
With some road cars costing well over 1 million now & Exige cup cars costing a fortune , what price would you put on a running all original 1998 V10 F1 with spares ?
Obviously if it was a championship winning V10 car than your talking well over a million .

£200k but to be honest I have no clue how much something like that would cost, but it is a starting point
