F1 Benetton B190/B192 Michael Schumacher official showcar

Official Benetton Formula One Team show car:

Only two official Benetton B190 in the B192 livery F1 cars were produced for Camel to use for promotions and exhibitions. The Benetton Formula 1 team used a B190 F1 car as the foundation, which was painted in the colors of the 1992 season, similar to the B192 from Schumacher’s first year with the team in 1992.

After serving as an F1 show car for promotions of the cigarette brand Camel, this car found its way to Spain. There, the B190/B192 remained hanging on the wall as decoration, resembling a painting, for 25 years. In August 2023, we purchased the F1 car and took it down from the wall. Despite all those years, it was still in good condition but had become quite dirty. The car has since been cleaned, professionally polished, and the finishing touches are being applied to achieve the desired end result. The OZ rims are also being repainted and adorned with the iconic yellow stripe on the rim.

This stunning show car represents Micheal Schumacher in the F1 World Championship of 1992 and was Michael  first podium in the World Championship with the B192 F1 car.

Drivers Michael Schumacher and Martin Brundle.

The car was quite competitive with Michael Schumacher and Martin Brundle scoring several podiums with it. Schumacher, in his first full F1 season, came of age as a Grand Prix driver when he won the rain-affected Belgian Grand Prix after a clever pit strategy put him in the lead after dropping behind Brundle with a brief off and realizing upon seeing Brundle’s tyres that the wets were blistering as the track dried. Brundle came close to a possible victory at the Canadian Grand Prix, chasing race leader Gerhard Berger until a transmission issue ended his bid at winning the race. Schumacher would finish the season third in the standings, Brundle sixth.

The car had a very well-designed, nimble chassis and it made the most of the disadvantages it inherited with the under-powered Ford V8. It did not have the sophisticated driver aids of its rivals,[citation needed] lacking active suspension, ABS, traction control, and a semi-automatic gearbox.
