For Sale: 1985 Ferrari F1 156/85
Does your garage have room for one more Ferrari Formula 1 machine?
An excellent example of the car which propelled Michele Alboreto to his best Formula 1 season, including several wins and second in the 1985 Formula 1 Drivers’ championship, and produced a second place finish in the constructors’ championship for Ferrari, this awesome Ferrari’s 156/85 is set to hit the auction blocks at Artcurial’s upcoming Salon Rétromobile sale.
This particular machine, chassis #086, came from Stefan Johansson’s side of the pits and was built during the mid-point of the season, which means that it features some of the modifications and improvements which Ferrari developed throughout the first half of the season. Its V6 releases 900 horses at full song in race-spec and would push beyond 1000 when let loose for qualifying.
#086 was Johansson’s ride for the European Grand Prix at Brands Hatch, where he had to drop out, as well as Kylami for the South African Grand Prix, in which he finished fourth, and was his reserve/testing car for the first ever Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix – the last event of the 1985 season.
The car comes with full certification from Ferrari Classiche, and received an engine rebuild in 2008.
