Leyton House F1 CG901 Formula 1 Car

The Leyton House CG901 Formula 1 chassis 006 driven by Ivan Capelli was built for the 1990 F1 season, and was powered by a 3.5L Judd EV V8 engine with 6 speed manual gearbox. Designed by Adrian Newey and who along with the likes of Ross Brawn who was also working on the Leyton House engineering team. 1990 was another year dominated by McLaren-Honda, however the 901 proved to be a revelation at the French GP, where Ivan Capelli led much of the race before finishing 2nd in an updated B version of the car which featured an exhaust blown diffuser. Chassis 6 is one of the B versions that was used in the latter part of the 1990 season. The CG901 is a beautifully packaged Formula 1 car and Newey took great care packaging the car as tightly as possible to optimise the aerodynamics of the car. This car was raced by Ivan Capelli in the second half of 1990 and Recently restored by historic F1 experts CGA racing and without any compromises, everything is 100%, even the sponsologos is hand painted like they were in time. Judd made the engine renovation and upgrade and for safety reason all wishbones etc are new and the tank has been upgraded for todays regulation. All electronics is also new and built in in the original boxes, this car is genuinely ready to drive and it has been tested for reability and setup, but never raced. – one of the last analogue F1 cars 3.5 litre with manual gearbox and V8 engine revving to around 12,000rpm as well as carbon brakes and huge downforce. The chassi 006 was very special and the only one with a single damper in the front. This car also was used to test av10 engine for the 1991 season. This car has been presented and registered for Masters during an invitation demo run and are now waiting for their upgrade for 3.5 litre class.
