If you’ve got the equivalent of a spare £1 million floating about, then you should have a think about putting in a bid for a Formula 1 car that’s up for auction.

The car in question is none other than Nick Heidfeld’s BMW Sauber F1.06, which was raced during the German carmaker’s first year in its ultimately failed Formula 1 quest as a bona fide constructor.

This particular model didn’t get the team into the winner’s circle, but ‘Quick Nick’ still claimed plenty of points’ finishes, as well as a podium in the thrilling rain-affected Hungarian Grand Prix, which was famously won by Jenson Button in the Honda.

This particular chassis – which comes with a working BMW P86 2.4-litre V8 capable of punching out 760bhp – is up for sale in a Dubai-based auction for a cool 5.9 million Emirati Dollars, the equivalent to just over £1 million.
