FORMULA ONE fans have the chance to own world champion Max Verstappen’s car.
But it’s NOT the vehicle the Red Bull star drove to a second straight championship this year.

Honda gave Verstappen a new £150,000 NSX Type S last month
And as a reward, Japanese manufacturer Honda gifted Verstappen a stunning £150,000 Honda NSX Type S.
It wasn’t the first time Honda had given Verstappen a present, handing him a Honda Civic Type-R GT in 2021.
That car went under the hammer last Christmas at a charity auction for £30,000.
But it’s up grabs once again, with Verstappen fans so far bidding up to £48k for the luxury sports vehicle.
The 320-horsepower Honda can go from 0 to 60mph in just 5.8 seconds.
It has an incredible top speed of 167mph.
And the car, which also boasts Verstappen’s signature on the dashboard, has only done 36,000 miles since hitting the road.
Insured in Monaco, the car currently resides in Verstappen’s homeland of the Netherlands.
And it’s a fellow Dutchman leading the auction with a bid of £48,000, as of Friday afternoon.
But with the auction deadline not until Monday evening, a fellow big bidder from Slovakia could yet decide to up his own £43,500 offer.
However, the next bid must be a minimum of £52,000.
The vehicle is being sold on Catawiki, and car expert Sander Houdel said: “Max Verstappen is hugely popular and will go into history as one of the youngest and most talented drivers in the world.
“If this car is treated right, it has a big potential to increase its value over the years.”
