Ever wanted to feel like Jenson Button when you’re on your trip down to shops? Well this is about as close as you’re going to get, an F1 replica liveried up as the 2009 title winning Brawn GP.

So why spend £24k on a brand new Vauxhall Astra when instead you can get this? I’m sure it’ll go down swimmingly with the wife or girlfriend, and you can even take the ‘airbox’ off so you can get someone else in the back. Talk about practicality!

This is a two seater sports car that can be used for everyday use, weekend fun or a track day car. There is a cover over the rear seat which makes it look like a single seater. This can be removed if you want to take a passenger. It’s ‘donor’ vehicle where most of the parts come from is a MK 1 Toyota MR2 1.6 16v. These engines are beautiful and well respected in track day racing. These rev well and are unbreakable. They can be tuned and some came with a turbo. Although only around 150BHP this vehicle only weighs 500+ Kgs so power to weight is amazing giving a 0-60 in around 4 seconds.
