The Schumi-piloted car is undefeated, having won four times, making it the most successful Ferrari in the history of Formula One.

The former owner of this beautiful car had owned it for 23 years, buying it directly from Ferrari in 1999.

The most wonderful thing about this car is that it has never been restored to its original condition.

It has remained identical (to when it was on the track) in order to keep its authenticity.

Let’s remember that this car ran with the best engine ever produced in the F1 world, before the arrival of the hybrid engine.

Nick Carter sued for sexual assault

The Backstreet Boys‘ most popular member, Nick Carter, is reportedly facing a sexual battery lawsuit stemming from an alleged incident involving a minor in 2001.

Legal documents cited by TMZ reveal that the alleged victim was 17 years old at the time of the alleged incident. She would have been invited by Carter to board the Backstreet Boys tour bus, while she was waiting in line for autographs.

Once on the bus, according to the document, Carter took her into the bathroom stall and ordered her to perform oral sex on him.

After the alleged act, Carter allegedly led him to a bed to continue his assault. Once the event was over, Shannon Ruth allegedly threatened Carter to report him, but Carter retorted with an insult and said that no one would believe her.

Recall that the Backstreet Boys main star has faced serious sexual misconduct allegations in the past, but has never been criminally charged.

According to TMZ, at least one source close to Nick said the accusations were categorically false and that he has been focusing on his family since the death of his brother Aaron.
