Buy Schumacher's 1994 F1 title winning car!
19 November 2013 – Michael Schumacher's championship winning Benetton Ford Cosworth B194 will go under the hammer at the start of next month, it has been confirmed. It will be sold by the Bonhams motoring department in London on December 1.
The chassis offered is the B194-05, which was used by the German in 1994 to win in San Marino, Monaco, Canada and France. It was also used by Schumacher to finish second in Spain and Britain that year – although he was subsequently excluded from the race at Silverstone for ignoring the black flag. It helped take him to his first of seven F1 drivers' titles.
“Presented in its original 1994 Mild Seven livery, this Benetton-Cosworth Ford B194 is offered in complete running condition following more than two years of painstaking restoration, and is described by its vendor as race-prepared,” reads the sales blurb.
“The car is offered with a completely rebuilt Cosworth-Ford Zetec engine, a fresh gearbox and a modernised high-speed paddle-shift gear change system.
“The package proposed for sale includes a race-ready car with spares and complete pit equipment.
“It is offered with a post-sale testing opportunity at its current home base, the Ascari Race Resort in Ronda, Spain.”
