Ferrari to stop selling old F1 cars

Ferrari are set to stop offering old Formula One cars for sale to wealthy customers because of the complexity of the recent generation of cars.

Sine 2003 the Italian team has offered cars as recent as two years old for sale as part of their F1 Clienti programme.

However, 2013's F138 looks set to be the last car offered for sale by Ferrari because the recent V6 hybrid cars are too difficult to maintain and transport.

"They are just too difficult to maintain," Ferrari test driver Marc Gene told Autocar. "Just to fly them over, the battery needs some extra safety requirements for the plane."

Ferrari's F1 Clienti programme allows customers to take part in organised track days around the world, as well as use of the company's exclusive Fiorano test track, and receive tutoring from Gene or one of the manufacturer's other test drivers.

At Ferrari Racing Days at Daytona International Speedway last weekend, it was confirmed to F1Today that the F1 Clienti programme is expected to continue for existing owners, and for the continued sale of older cars.
