The car has covered just 148 miles since it stopped racing, with Michael's son Mick driving most of them.
It has since been back to Ferrari for a complete overhaul and is now as it was when it started on the grid back in 2003.
While the F1 cars of today have small 1.6-litre V6 engines, this 2003 car is fitted with a howling 3.0-litre V10 that revs to a crazy 19,000rpm.
