Toyota F1 team puts Grand Prix hardware up for sale

Formula One merchandise has never seen anything like it: alongside the familiar caps, T-shirts and keyrings, Toyota’s grand prix team is selling a host of high-tech parts from its past racing cars.

Carbon fibre wings, brakes and light alloy wheels can all be had with the click of a mouse at the Toyota F1 web site, with prices ranging from £175 to £4,400.

At the bargain end of the market there are wheels, brake discs and suspension parts from less than £200, while front and rear wing assemblies can be yours for between £700 and £2,000. And if you want that ultimate desk accessory, a complete rear wing, engine cover and underbody section – virtually half a car – the asking price is just £4,400.

“While stocks last” promises to be an apt sales pitch as F1 fans rush to snap up a rare bargain.
