Senna’s red 1991 NSX can purchased online at eBay

Ayrton Senna, considered to be one of Formula One’s most legendary drivers, was apparently also very much a fan of Honda’s road cars; more specifically the NSX. In total Senna owned three of the mid-engined exotics. Now one of these gems has been listed on eBay for a mere US$180,000.  Read More

Ayrton Senna's Toleman TG184-2 F1 car up for sale

Ayrton Senna is one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time and his premature 1994 death created a scarcity which is driving memorabilia prices skyward. Earlier this year an ex-Senna helmet fetched US$100,000 at auction and now the car he drove in his debut season is to go to auction - the same car in which Senna drove his way into legend at the wet 1984 Monaco GP.  Read More

Alain Prost's 1990 Ferrari 641/2 F1 car is to be auctioned on May 17

A Formula One car at the centre of one of the most bitter battles in F1 history, as well as one of its most infamous acts, goes under the hammer at the highly anticipated Ferrari Leggenda e Passione event at Ferrari’s home in Maranello on May 17. The car is the Ferrari 641/2 F1 car driven by Alain Prost in 1990 during his acrimonious run-ins with his McLaren rival, Ayrton Senna. It is also the actual car that Prost was driving when Senna punted him off the track in Japan within seconds of the start of the race, handing the Brazilian the 1990 title – an act which prompted an appalled Prost to make the comment that “motor racing is sport, not war.” In the hands of Prost, chassis 121 scored in total two third-place finishes, two second places and a victory in 1990, and is expected to fetch an estimated USD$700,000 at auction.  Read More
