Original Jordan F1 parts:
After being the official Hond UK show-car, the car was bought by a Honda dealer in the UK. After a view years in their showroom, the dealer lost the Honda official dealership and offered this car for sale. A business owner in the UK bought the car and rented it out for the last nine years as a business hobby with “The Shark “. Over ten shows were done with ex F1 driver Johnny Herbert and this Jordan F1 car. After that, the car was sold to a privet owner in The Netherlands and kept in his privet collection of other F1 iconic cars.
The EJ11 was potentially the fourth fastest car of the season, driven by renowned drivers, Frentzen, Trulli, Alesi with a great team behind them, yet the results never appeared. The EJ11 was a great qualifying car, and at nearly every Grand Prix at least one of the EJ11s was in the top six.
The team were often able to get the cars into the points, but a mechanical problem would cause the car to retire from the race. Had the car finished every race it started, it would almost certainly achieve some podium finishes. Instead, the team settled for three fourths, four-fifths and two sixths. Although 2001 was an improvement over the 2000 season, the results were still not good enough. Jordan only narrowly beat BAR and were beaten by the much smaller, underfunded Sauber team. A total of 19 points were scored, two more than BAR but two less than Sauber. The EJ11 was fast enough to finish fourth in the Constructors’ Championship, but constant problems, similar to those that occurred in the previous year, occurred again. Overall, the team underperformed.
This car has been built to a very high standard, it is in excellent condition, with a carbon- and glass fibre parts, genuine race wheels and display Bridgestone tyres to the untrained eye this is a Formula One car, it cannot be made into a race-ready car.
