An auction of the assets of the Manor F1 team has been launched, with four chassis among the main items for sale.

The administrators confirmed last week that there was no future for the team as a going concern, and that auctioning the cars and equipment was the only option to raise some funds to pay creditors.

The star items are what the auctioneers Gordon Brothers describe as four “rolling chassis show cars (2015/2016),” which are of course lacking both their Mercedes power units and Williams gearboxes, which have been returned to their suppliers.

The other intriguing lot is the 2017 wind tunnel model, which was still being worked on until just a few weeks ago.

There is also a large number of car parts from 2014-16, including five steering wheels and three other chassis. Also for sale are race suits, clothing, factory and office equipment, and the paddock hospitality trailer.
