The Ferrari F2002 was one of the most successful Formula One car designs of all time. It provided a total of 16 Grands Prix from a total of 20 races in 2002 and 2003. It was powered by a 3.0 liter V10 engine with a low center of gravity. This engine was able to produce a total of 835 Hp and Ferrari is now offering the general public the chance to own a piece of history by putting the F2002’s engine on sale for 55,000 € (or around $70,000 at the current rates) on a red base unit, no less.
Ferrari’s Paolo Martinelli designed this exceptional engine that resulted in a "long-lasting accurate processing of a special steel block, highly resistant, moulded thanks to modern technologies improving its features". Every aspect and detail of the engine was thoroughly studied to produce an engine worthy of the Ferrari name.
The P2002 is a single-seater that claimed the fastest race lap on the Monegasque circuit in 2002. It was a Drivers’ and Constructors’ F1 World Champion and was driven by Ferrari drivers, Michael Shumacher and Rubens Barrichello. Its engine will be presented on the night before the Monaco Grand Prix on the Monte Carlo circuit this weekend.
If anyone questions the authenticity of the P2002, the owner can easily whip out the certificate of authenticity signed by the Ferrari Sport Management General Manager, Mr Stefano Domenicali.
