2000 Benetton B200 Formula 1
William I'Anson Ltd are excited to offer for sale the stunning Ex - Giancarlo Fisichella 2000 Benetton B200 Formula 1.
The last of six B200 chassis built by Benetton for the 2000 Formula 1 season, and the only example of a B200 in running condition, with very few remaining.
The B200 was heralded as a change in philosophy by Engineering Director Pat Symonds, with huge weight savings over the B199, improved chassis stiffness and much increased aerodynamic stability. The model went on to take three podiums with Fisichella through the 2000 season, with Benetton claiming 4th in the Constructors’ World Championship.
B200-06 was raced by Giancarlo Fisichella on his way to finishing 6th in the Drivers’ World Championship, and was also a spare car for both Fisichella and Wurz.
Likely to have been one of the test cars for 2000 and pre-season 2001, during which time Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button, Mark Webber, Oliver Gavin, Giorgio Pantano and Hidetoshi Matsusada all drove for Benetton.
To be sold with shakedown miles only following the rebuild to running condition by Mansell Motorsport, and fitted with a 750 bhp Judd V10 engine with a forecast inter-service life of 3000km.
As the interest in late era Formula 1 cars continues to gather pace, the B200 is a superb ticket to exhilaration with eligibility for the BOSS GP series, Master Historic Racing demonstrations and of course private track use.
