In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the yellow Jordan cars were fan favorites in Formula 1. Now, a fan with deep pockets will have the chance to own one of those very cars.

Subaru and Lexus buyers are most loyal to brands, J.D. Power study says

  Subaru and Lexus buyers are most loyal to brands, J.D. Power study says The latest Automotive Brand Loyalty Study shows it's becoming tougher for brands to coax buyers away from their rivals.The study, now in its second year, calculates brand loyalty based on the percentage of owners who stick with the same brand when trading in their current car or purchasing another one. It also accounts for any model year a customer trades in, though data collected comes from June 2019 to May 2020.

Leading classic car auction house The Market is offering a 2002 Jordan Honda EJ12, one of just two examples that are thought to survive, and it is expected to fetch £150,000 - £250,000 (about $194,000 - $323,000 at current exchange rates).

Driven in period by Takuma Sato, who since leaving F1 has gone on to win the Indianapolis 500 twice, the car is in complete running condition. However, instead of its Honda V10 engine, power now comes from a Judd KV8 Zytec S3000 Formula 3000 engine, mated to a five-speed Lola/Hewland paddle-shift gearbox.

That might sound ever-so-slightly disappointing, but it means that the car is significantly cheaper to run and much more useable – and it's still capable of impressive performance to boot.

The car had a fresh engine rebuild in 2016-17, and has only covered 500 km since – 10 percent of its lifespan.

As well as the user-friendly engine, the Jordan sale also includes spare sets of wheel rims and tyres, wishbones, various tools, and various other spares.

"As one of just two known remaining chassis built by the Jordan F1 team in 2002, this car’s rarity already makes it incredibly attractive and desirable," said Tristan Judge, director, The Market. "However, with the engine changes that have been made, the car is much more useable than most top flight race cars, meaning that the new owner can practically turn up to events alone and enjoy it’s stunning performance.

"The vendor keeps telling us how astounded he has been at this car’s ability to open doors to fantastic events and remarkable people, including many ex-F1 drivers.

"Not only will the successful bidder acquire a top flight race car and spares package that’s ready for action, the new owner can also enter the Boss GP Championship or accept a standing invitation to take it to Suzuka."
