    Michael Schumacher’s title-winning Benetton Formula One car from 1994 has appeared for sale on eBay.

    The German drove the Ford Cosworth-powered car to his first of seven world titles. It is described as being in “racing condition”.

    The seller, from Toronto, has advertised the car on the German eBay site and it is being sold with several spare parts, including two extra sets of wheels and tyres, and its data laptop, to monitor the fluid levels and temperatures.

    The bodywork and livery remain identical to that seen during the 1994 season, but the damage Schumacher sustained in the 1994 season finale has been fixed.

    The German controversially took the title after crashing into Damon Hill in Adelaide after suffering a problem. The collision forced Hill to retire and allowed Schumacher to maintain his one-point advantage and clinch his first world championship.

    So far, the car has attracted 184 bids and has reached more than 2.6 million euro (£2.3m), although the winning bidder will have to pay an extra 10,000 euros (£9000) for shipping. The auction is scheduled to end on Monday.
