Maybe Jordan191 is interested? beautiful early 90s car..
I wonder will it pass the NCT? I wouldn't mind taking it for a test drive either before I buy it.

Lol. Arrows weren't the only team to have a 3 seater car. Ferrari & Renault had them too.

Thanks for this Jordan. I knew of 2 seater F1s but not 3 seaters. They look really nice, but they'd be useless for Q3 with all that extra weight.

You're welcome Mr. H

McLaren were the first team to have a 2 seater car, followed by Minardi and Arrows.

In fairness tho, if you had a milion to spend on an F1 car - The Alesi's Ferrari probably wouldnt be top of your list tho?

If I were to buy an ex-F1 Ferrari then it would be this baby - a year before the one posted by the OP

I saw this particular car race at Silverstone and sound of its Tipo V12 was music....

Interesting quote in the description of that add.

"Senna was on pole, Prost right next to him. The lights flashed green, both drivers sped into the first corner where Senna closed the door on Prost and the two collided. Their race was over, and the title was handed to Senna."

Funny i seem to remember it being the opposite way round.

Um he's right though, the quote is bollocks.
Prost was in front coming into the first corner when Senna made a move most agree was intended to take them both out.

I guess the writer of that article was one of the few people who think Senna actually intended to make that corner and just got his names mixed up.

Your comment about it being a joke was snide.
Not going to post anything more on it, don't want to bring thread any further off topic.

Yes, that was why I put a smiley face there - the universal sign of sarkiness.
