Toyota Offers Genuine F1 Parts for Sale

 Toyota Offers Genuine F1 Parts for Sale
Toyota Genuine F1 Parts

Maybe it's a bad omen. Maybe Team Toyota is trying to tell the world something. Maybe this is just paranoia, but when a Formula One team starts selling off parts of its racing cars curiosity is piqued. Team Toyota is selling pieces like T-shirts, caps and key rings on its online shop Toyota-f1-shop.com.

But alongside these normal fan pieces are carbon fiber wings, light alloy wheels, brakes and engine covers. These are genuine parts from past Toyota F1 race cars. Prices for these things range from €200 to €5,000. Sadly there are no engines offered for sale. What you can get though is the engine cover for €2,500. Plain rear wings can be had for €600, a brake disc and suspension wishbone for €200 each and a front rim will set you back €200.

What will get you as close to a complete car as possible is the engine cover with the underfloor and rear wing attached. All yours for €5,000.

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 at www.toyota-f1-shop.com, 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.

some billionaire should just buy all the parts and build his own engine :p or would that cost more than building from scratch?
