It seems Michael Schumacher's title winning car in 1994, the famous Benetton B194-05, is at great demand recently, as a second eBay customer has placed it for sale on the UK version of the aforementioned website. According to the new poster, the car is as real as it gets and could be purchased for the starting price of 1.150 million pounds sterling.
