Lot No. 101 - 1993 Sauber C12A

Sold for: £16,875

A wonderful exhibit for any showroom....
Details Specification

Nearly twenty-five years ago Sauber took its first steps in Formula One with the striking C12. Designed by Harvey Postlethwaite and Leo Ress, the car was driven by Karl Wendlinger and JJ Lehto, taking the team to seventh in the Constructors Championship with two highest place finishes of fourth at the San Marino and Italian Grand Prix.Looking totally realistic, Sauber 93.C12A.04 is one of five show cars built by the Sauber F1 team for its sponsors and partners. It is based on the 1993 C12 but is finished in the more attractive 'Tissot' 1994 livery and was constructed using original tooling and many original parts. The bodywork, front and rear wings, floor, suspension, steering and cooling appear to be original. The tub is of carbon fibre construction. The ILMOR 2175 engine and Xtrac semi-automatic transaxle are deliberately missing their internal components, and some hidden parts were not fitted. This stunning car would make a fine addition to any collection, as a display piece in an office reception, as a basis for a realistic simulator, or just something to hang on your kitchen wall! NB The car has been inspected by F1 engineers who concluded that the car is an exhibition car only and not suitable to be made into a running car.
