F1 Car Parts Sold as Key-Chains

Ever wondered what happens with Formula 1 car parts after they get old or a crash ruins everything? Well, some of them are sent back to factories to be melted and reformed while other will be sold as souvenirs or key-chains.

As far as we know, there is an online shop that sells small used F1 car parts from different manufacturers.

For example, the one in the picture above is a rear wing insert, made from CNC machined aluminum and it is from a 2006 Honda racecar. It is approximately 65 mm (2.5 inch) in length and it is engraved with a Honda part number to state that it is genuine.

Each piece comes with a laminated gift / information card that explains what the part is, where it comes from and which drivers would have used it. The stock is limited and you can get one here.
