Senna's Honda NSX up for sale on the 20th anniversary of his death

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Formula One three-time world champion Ayrton Senna and next month, fans will get a chance to bid on his Honda NSX supercar at auction.

According to inquirer.net, next year also marks the 25th anniversary of the Honda NSX, which Senna was personally involved in developing, as Honda used to supply engines to the McLaren F1 team.

Nick Whale, managing director at Silverstone Auctions, explained just how important the car is, particularly to fans.

"Very rarely does a car with such pedigree and provenance come to market, especially with such a powerful and personal link to arguably the greatest F1 driver of all time, and as such, we're incredibly excited to offer it for auction," he said.

Originally, the Honda NSX was purchased for Senna by his manager and friend, Antonio Carlos de Almeida Braga. After Senna's death in 1994, the car wasn't used for two years and remained in Portugal. Eventually, it was sold on and its current owner is now looking to sell, reports autoexpress.co.uk.

The 1992 model has only covered 31,800 miles and is estimated to fetch somewhere between £75,000 to £85,000 at auction. To get a chance to bid on this unique vehicle, fans will need to head to Silverstone Auctions' Race Retro & Classic Car Sale on the 22nd of February - and should consider how they will keep the vehicle secure, if they decide to make a bid.
