A Madrid-based car recycling firm has purchased five cars previously used by the now folded HRT Formula 1 team, company owner Teo Martin confirmed on Friday.
Martin has acquired three cars from 2012 and two from 2011, while the engine units used in all five have been taken back by supplier Cosworth. A third car from 2011 was bought by Pirelli, which the Italian brand has confirmed will be used as a show car.
In addition to the cars, Martin has claimed a large proportion of the team's general equipment from its headquarters - situated at the Caja Magica in Madrid. The businessman is planning to sell items to collectors who express an interest.
A fortnight ago, there were reports that a group of investors from the United States and Canada had been looking at the possibility of purchasing HRT's assets and entering the sport under the name of Scorpion Racing, but a deal did not come to fruition.
