1984 Formula F1 Race Car Used by Ayrton Senna for Sale
Now the car is up for grabs at the annual Silverstone Auctions in Britain on May 16, and its expected to fetch a pretty penny should the collectors get it on the action.
“We are thrilled to bring this iconic race car to auction as it’s undoubtedly one of the most important lots we’ve ever offered under the hammer. Senna mania is reaching fever pitch and rightly so as he’s considered by many as the greatest F1 driver we’ve ever seen. It goes without saying that this will be one of the star attractions at the sale as it’s a very rare chance to own a much sought after piece of motorsport and Ayrton Senna history,” said Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions.
“Excitement is building for the auction which promises to be a must attend sale for any serious collector or motorsport enthusiast. Apart from the Senna F1 car, another notable early entry is a stunning 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, estimated at between £190,000 to £210,000. If these are examples of what’s to follow, then it promises to be quite an event,” added Nick.
