F1 Authentics is proud to present this Official Alfa Romeo F1® Team Stake C43 Launch Car, used for the F1 team's official 2023 launch, held on 7th February 2023. 

Now, this car is available for you to own within your car collection! 

This exquisite car (a non-running show car) is chassis no.1 and features a signed chassis plaque, autographed by the 2023 driver line-up. 

The C43 is the successor of the C42 and will be driven by Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu who continue with the team in 2023 - their second season with the team. 

This car represents a world first - the first time an official F1 launch car has become available to the public. Now you have a chance to own the Alfa's 2023 car - the first chassis. 

Traditionally built exclusively for F1 teams and partners, this limited production is the first for 2023.

In 2022, the C42 Show Cars sold through F1 Authentics were the first of their kind from a current season to be made available for public.

Now the C43 follows its path, offering collectors the chance to own a current car.  

This exquisite car dons the striking 2023 Alfa Romeo F1® Team Stake and features the sponsorship branding and liveries that the race cars driven by Bottas and Zhou will showcase for the 2023 season. 

The 2023 Launch Car has been specifically designed for show car purposes and not for competition and has been constructed to withstand the load's exerted for show car purposes.

The Chassis and Body work is constructed from high performance, lightweight pre preg Carbon Fibre and are designed to represent the real car with excellent surface finish whilst being durable and able to take the load exerted through the 4 axles.  

Components are designed and manufactured using the same techniques as running F1 cars and utilising official 2023 Alfa Romeo F1® Team Stake CAD data, composite tooling is used to create patterns, which are then used to create carbon fibre moulds via an autoclave.

Each mould is then used to create each specific part of the car's bodywork, with each piece of bodywork then created using the materials previously mentioned.  

The car comes fitted with electronic features, including a 3D printed steering wheel with a working screen and working rain lights.

The steering wheel is fully connected to the front wheels via the steering rack enabling the wheels to turn left or right.   

The car can be lifted by the front and rear and the nose and front wing assembly can be removed for transport purposes, as can the wheels for pit stop practice.  

This exceptional Launch Car will also come with the race suits and boots that drivers Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu wore for the Launch Show. These pieces of 2023 official racewear will also be signed by the racing duo.
