With the new season of the Formula E coming up, which will use a new generation of electric race cars, FIA is offering the “old” ones for sale. Prices vary despite the identical set-up of each racer.
FIA Formula E says the differences depend on the success of the car, i.e. how hard it has been taken through its paces. Only 40 electric race cars will be made available and are being offered through word of mouth.
There appears to be substantial attachment to the EVs. Some teams even asked to hold on to them, while Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag sees the new oldtimers as a symbol for their early struggle to establish the electric racing series.
Collectors may purchase one of 40 racers for prices starting from 200,000 dollars. You will need to reach out to FIA directly.
The 2018/19 season will the fifth run for the Formula E. Racing will kick-off in Saudi Arabia this time and conclude with a double-bill in New York City. Other cities include Berlin and Hong Kong for example as a total of 13 races will see the electric series travel through twelve cities on five continents (we reported).
