A well maintained 1992 Honda NSX, owned by legendary three times Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna, will soon be auctioned at Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro & Classic Car Sale. The auction for this vehicle will happen on the 22nd and 23rd of February.

The original owner of this car was Antonio Carlos de Almeida Braga, close personal friend, manager and mentor of Senna.

Following Senna’s sad demise at Imola in 1994, the car remained stationed in the garage at Braga’s home. Two years later, it was sold to a buyer who kept it only for a short time before being purchased by the current owner seventeen years ago.

Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “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.

The car, offered with an estimate of between £75,000 to £85,000, is presented in black with a black leather interior, manual gearbox and has covered just 31,800 miles. 

Nick added: “We’re extremely pleased to be able to offer another item so closely linked to Aryton Senna. Over the past few years we’ve been privileged to offer race suits, helmets and signed photographs amongst other pieces connected to him as well as other F1 drivers such as Fangio and James Hunt.
