BAR-Honda 007 (2005) - Button
The BAR-Honda 007 was an evolution of the previous 2004 season’s 006 which led the team’s charge to second place in the championship, despite the dominance of Michael Schumacher and Ferrari. BAR designers managed to save significant weight over the 006, despite greater safety testing being required, with a smaller, tighter design. Honda created a brand new V10 unit, which itself was smaller, light and had a better centre of gravity.
Driven by future world champion Jenson Button and Japanese driver Takuma Sato, the 007 was a midfield runner. Button achieved two third place podium finishes during the season, but the team could only finish sixth in the constructors’ championship, scoring 38 points. With a modified version of the 007 the team attempted to establish a Formula One car land speed record and managed 246.91mph (397.36 km/h), but the record was never declared official by the FIA.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the BAR-Honda 007, as raced by future world champion Jenson Button, has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Honda regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
