Care for a 1992 Lamborghini Minardi F1 Race Car? It’s Up for Sale

Taking a 1992 F1 racer to compete with today’s crop of F1 models is something like having a middle-aged man run a sprint against a high school senior, but getting into one of these cars for your own satisfaction, is a completely different story, and it’s one that can come true – if you have a lot of cash to spare, that is.

To be precise, the “Buy it Now” price of this 1992 Lamborghini Minardi F1 car that was raced by Christian Fittipaldi in the 1992 Formula One Championship, stands at $208,888 (roughly €155,000 at today’s exchange rates) on eBay.

The seller states the car has been fully refurbished and is drivable, with the Mauro Foghieri-designed L3512 Lamborghini / Chrysler V12 engine putting out a “certified 700bhp and turning over at a maximum 13,800 rpm”, while the car itself tips the scales at a mere “1,135 pounds” or 515 kilograms.

We’re also told that it is only one of three 1992 Lamborghini Minardi F1 cars that exists in the world and that since it was retired from action, it has been “driven by Valentino Balboni [former chief test driver of Lamborghini] in demonstration events at Road Atlanta and Sebring”.

Thanks to Fast Eddie for the tip!
