Honda Super Aguri
SA 107 Single seat F1 racing car
Offered for sale is this Super Aguri/Honda 2007 F1 race car converted to simulator
The car is in excellent condition and could be used as a static display as it has been converted to be used as a simulator. This makes it the ultimate big boys toy, and in the right environment could be used to generate substantial income from ‘wanabe’ F1 drivers!
Please note that THE ENGINE AND OTHER VITAL PARTS ARE NOT PRESENT, but it may be possible, with the correct technical expertise and of course an engine, to convert this car back to full racing trim, allowing the owner to participate in the top classic car meetings such as the The Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Silverstone Classic.
It is unlikely that any other of these rare Super Aguri Formula One cars will ever come to market – so if you wish to buy into the successful albeit short lived legend of the team, this is surely a once in a lifetime opportunity! This car comes with a Chassis Lifing certificate of Authenticity from Brawn GP signed by Ross Brawn.
Please note this is a GENUINE SA7-03 rolling chassis NOT a replica, copy or facsimile.
This car was owned by Brawn GP after Honda GP pulled out of F1 and Brawn took over the company. The history described in the listing of this car is accurate in all respects. It is a unique opportunity, and if a 2.4 V8 engine could sourced, the potential value of this, one the rarest F1 cars of the 2.4-V8 era, could rise exponentially!

The History behind the Honda powered SA07
Super Aguri history
Super Aguri Formula One was founded by Team Principal Aguri Suzuki, a former F1 driver and a major player in Japanese motorsport. The entrance fee of 48 million USD was rumoured to have been paid by Honda, as they thought the team would prove useful by running Honda engines.
The team's head office was in Tokyo, although the main operations were carried out at its base in Oxfordshire.
The SA07 was derived from the successful RA106. Super Aguri adapted the chassis to fit the new RA807E engine – a relatively simple task because of a virtual development freeze on engine regulations. Other than a new gearbox and a few aerodynamic tweaks to the bodywork, the car was almost identical to the original 2006 RA106.
Because the RA106 was such a good car, delivering Jenson Button his first Grand Prix win the previous year (2006) at Hungary, it was no real surprise that both Anthony Davidson and Takuma Sato managed to make it to the second qualifying session (Q2) of the first Grand Prix of the 2007 season in Australia.
Sato remained at Super Aguri for the 2007 season and was joined by Anthony Davidson who had previously been his team mate at Carlin Motorsport in British F3. Sato started the season strongly, setting the team's best ever qualifying result of tenth place for the championship-opening Australian Grand Prix. He finished eighth in the Spanish Grand Prix, to record Super Aguri's first ever world championship point.
This car resides at a comprehensive and extensive collection in Holland. Serious potential buyers are asked to furnish me, James Morgan, with their phone number/contact details and/or email address, whereon the owner will contact them to make an appointment to view in Holland.
