Back when engines in Formula 1 were called engines and not hybrid power units, the drivers and teams were more focused on out-and-out racing rather than tire management. One of the single seaters that will forever remain a staple of the motorsport’s repute is this - the Williams FW14B from the 1992 F1 season.
This particular example of the breed is chassis #10. And would you believe that it is for sale? Don’t ask about the price, though, because the ad on Cars International reads “POA,” as in “price on application.” But the truth of the matter is, FW14B #10 is worth a lot thanks to its distinguished results.

According to the British car specialist, the car featured in the adjacent photo gallery has been put to the test by the iconic Nigel Mansell on four occasions. Damon Hill also got behind the wheel of this marvel of engineering. However, Ricardo Patrese is the driver who raced the car on Sundays.

In Monaco, the Italian racing driver qualified on second then went on to finish third on the podium. In Suzuka, at the 1992 Japanese Grand Prix, Patrese took the win in #10, so yeah, this single seater boasts plenty of pedigree.

Designed by Adrian Newey, equipped with active suspension, and powered by a 3.5-liter Renault V10 that breathes freely, the Williams FW14B #10 also comes with a six-speed semi-automatic transmission. It was the bee’s knees. A testament to its greatness is the constructor's title Williams had won in ’92.

Other than chassis #10 itself, Cars International mentions that the sale also includes “a comprehensive history file containing photographs, engineering notes and other historic documentation on a race by race basis from the Williams Archive,” as well as a certificate of authenticity.

If you want to own a racecar that will only go up in price as times goes by, this is the one for you.
