2001 B.A.R for sale online
29 April 2010 – For sale: British American Racing-Honda Formula 1 car. Year: 2001.
A B.A.R F1 car, the like of which was driven by 1997 Champion Jacques Villeneuve nine years ago, is up for sale on the internet.
Despite being listed as a Honda NSX sports car, the No. 11, Lucky Strike-liveried B.A.R is currently available via Auto Trader at an asking price of £29,995.
Courtesy of Villeneuve and team-mate French Olivier Panis, the Honda-powered car of the Brackley team now known as Mercedes GP scored a total of 17 points on its way to finishing sixth in the 2001 Constructors' Championship.
Although French-Canadian Villeneuve achieved podium finishes at the Spanish and German Grands Prix, the B.A.R 003 is probably best remembered amongst fans for its high-flying accident with Ralf Schumacher's Williams at the season-opening event in Australia.
