Ayrton Senna’s F1-Winning McLaren is heading to auction

A rare opportunity has arose to purchase Ayrton Senna’s 1993 F1-winning McLaren MP4/8. The historic car will be auctioned by Bonhams at their Monaco auction on the 11th May 2018.

The MP4/8 features fully active suspension traction control and a semi-automatic transmission, as well as Ford’s V8 engine. Senna won six of the 1993 Championship races including his sixth and final victory in Monaco. Chassis number 6 is the car that won that very race and is also the one that Bonhams is offering in May at the Monaco auction.

Bonhams haven’t provided an estimate ahead of the auction, although its rarity and legacy is sure to pull in the interest and a high sale price. Bonhams have also confirmed the car is a runner.
