Michael Schumacher’s F2001 for Sale

By Adam Tate, Associate Editor

Is your dream garage full of the latest super cars, historic classics and more, but it’s just missing that little bit extra, that final show stopping piece? Well then, RM Sotheby’s auction house has just what you’re looking for.

Next month they are auctioning Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari F2001. Described as, “the most significant and valuable competition car in any collection worldwide,” the F2001 chassis No. 211 is the exact car Schumacher used to win the 2001 Monaco Grand Prix, and the 2001 Formula One World Championship.

The 3.0 liter V10 produces nearly 900 hp at 18,500 rpm and what’s even better is that Ferrari is prepared to store and maintain the car for its new owner as part of the F1 Corse Clienti track day program. The program already maintains and tracks several classic F1 cars, so you’ll be able to hobnob with fellow Bond villains and mega rich tifosi all while bragging that your car once won on the streets of Monaco.

If this sounds right up your alley and you can’t wait to don your fire suit and see just how close you can get to Schumacher’s lap times be sure to place your bid with Sotheby’s, but be sure to bring the big checkbook, the auction house estimates the car will sell for a cool $4 million.
