Now and then we get word of a barn find that raises the eyebrows, but this week these images popped up showing a barn find that truly had us gasping!

Research suggests these are historic F1 replicas, potentially used for promotional purposes, and they were uncovered in a small village in France.

The cars uncovered included examples from a number of manufacturers, such as a 1995 Benetton (pictured top of article).

Other rumours suggest they are practice vehicles with low-power engines, but we suspect the story of them being replicas is more likely.

At any rate, seeing them in this condition is heart-breaking. It would appear that some of them have even been smoke damaged.

Running or not, replica or not, I still want one as the centerpiece in my (non-existent) mansion’s foyer.

If anyone has more information on these, we would love to hear about it!
