The F1-89, also known as the Ferrari 640, was used to compete in the 1989 Formula One world championship. Team drivers were Nigel Mansel, who finished the season fourth with two wins, and Gerhard Berger, who managed to rack up one win and finish seventh overall.

The car for sale appears to be in as good condition as it would have been on race day some 25 years ago. It features a 3.5-litre V12 engine that produces 492kW, and for the first time in Formula One, a seven-speed semi-automatic transmission.
