Unique opportunity to own the 2019 Toro Tosso Formula One car that had a 2nd podium place in Brazil driven by Pierre Gasly.
This exceptional original F1 car (rolling chassis), also driven by Alex Albon during the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship. The car has an interesting history after F1, too.

Toro Rosso STR14- 2019
The Toro Rosso STR 14 is the second most successful car in the 14-year history of the Italian team. Only the 2008 STR3, in which Sebastian Vettel took the teams maiden win – is more illustrious. Although the Honda-engine looked promising during the 2018, nobody at the season opener in Melbourne expected Toro Rosso to end the 2019 season with two sensational podium finishes and 85 points to its record.
Toro Rosso started the season with the experienced Daniil Kvyat, who was partnered by the young Thai Alexander Albon. Later in the season, Albon would depart to Red Bull Racing, where he would take the place of the disappointing Pierre Gasly. Gasly returned to Toro Rosso where he would prove to be all but mentally broken by his demotion. In the nine remaining races, Gasly would finish in the points five times. During the Brazilian Grand Prix he let Lewis Hamilton eat his dust while finishing second, screaming and crying with delight. He did that while driving the car in this picture, which would later be stripped of its Honda engine en rebadged to the number 23 of Albon, who finished sixth in the German Grand Prix at the wheel of this car. That was also the race where Kvyat finished a sensational third, one day after becoming a father for the first time. The Toro Rosso STR14 carries with it some of the most beautiful stories of a tumultuous 2019 season and is therefore a collector’s item in its own right.
