The Story

All original carbon fibre suspension has been taken off and replaced with new fabricated steel wishbones, all of which are in perfect working order. Original carbon wishbones are to be supplied with the car. The gearbox was also stripped and inspected, and was fitted with new gears, and a re-built gearbox with new bearings. A set of gears will last at race pace around 300 miles if being driven for track days and shake down, recommended to be changed once a season. The gearbox has had new internals, so it has around 300 miles life left on the gears. Original Brembo brakes have been fitted and brake lines are all in good condition. All four wheel bearings have been replaced – a new set will be required at least every season if car is having regular use, these have around 1,000 miles life expectancy.

Private Client in Mexico

I first met F1 Authentics a few years ago, when I pursued a long-standing dream to purchase an authentic F1 car and hang it on a wall.  

To describe the entire experience with the transaction as “amazing” is an understatement. The team graciously assisted with all shipping logistics from the UK, and I was blown away when the car arrived. It surpassed all expectations.

Private Client

The F1 Authentic’s team has been both easy and great to work with. They not only helped me track down the perfect chassis, but they also helped with door-to-door shipping and logistics. I would recommend F1 Authentic’s to anyone looking to expand their collection into the racing grid.
