Race Cars Direct sells the STR14 of the 2019 Toro Rosso team. It was on this car that Pierre Gasly achieved second place in the Brazilian Grand Prix, but it will not work to repeat his success: the car will be handed over to the buyer without an engine.
- Thanks to the Gasli podium, this car is called the second most successful Toro Rosso car after the 2008 chassis - then Sebastian Vettel managed to achieve the champion title. In total, 17 races were held on this car, and it was piloted by Pierre Gasly and Alexander Albon.
- The delivery of the sports car includes, for example, a fully functional gearbox, two steering wheel options, radiators, a braking system and adjustable aerodynamic elements. In addition, the pilot's seat of Pierre Gasly is installed in the car. At the same time, the engine with the control unit and the hydraulics were completely dismantled: the car is sold in the rolling chassis status, that is, either as a collector's item or as a basis for an independent project. Meanwhile, during the 2019 racing season, the car was powered by Honda's 1.6-liter turbocharged V6.
- Now the car is in a private collection in the Netherlands, the owner of which put the car up for sale. The platform promises to inform the cost of the car only to a really interested buyer.
Cars from the world of "royal races" are by no means a rarity in free sale. For example, last September it was possible to buy a 2002 Jordan HondEJ 12, and shortly before that the first car of the last season of the Panasoniс ToyotRacing team was put up for auction.
