Planning a track car build with an unlimited budget? We have some good news. There's a V-10 Honda Formula 1 engine for sale in Italy right now on Facebook Marketplace for the low, low price of €11,000 (around $12,200).

According to the seller's description, this engine was taken out of a 1994 F1 car. Designated MF351H, it was the type of engine that powered the Lotus 109 when new. Though the car wasn't exactly successful in-period, it still revved to 13,500 RPM and made 700 horsepower. And if you've ever heard a V-10 F1 car before, you'll know the sound is another big highlight.

Of course, if you were to actually buy this engine, you'd have to go through the trouble of getting it to America (or wherever you live), and making sure it actually works. Getting it to run with whatever you swap it into probably won't be too easy either. And don't even ask about spare parts.

Still, seeing an actual F1 engine for sale is always special. If anything, it could make for a nice display piece in your living room. If you're willing to drop $12,000 on a display piece, that is.
