The Toleman-Hart F1 TG184-2 Formula 1 race car once driven by Ayrton Senna is up for sale at Prindiville in London. Senna raced the car during his rookie Formula 1 season in 1984. The sale price is set at 1 million pounds or approximately $1.5 million.

Senna also raced this particular car for the first time in the Monaco Grand Prix, an event the rookie nearly won in rain soaked conditions and starting from 13th place. Senna raced against cars from the likes of McLaren, Ferrari, Lotus, Renault, Williams, Brabham, Ligier, and others. Despite starting out behind big names such as Prost, Lauda, Mansell, Piquet, Arnoux, Tambay, and Rosberg, the rookie was able to take the lead by the 32nd lap.

Although the racer was in the lead when the race was called by a red flag, the decision went to the previous lap leader. Despite the disappointing loss, the race showed Senna was a force to be reckoned with in Formula 1, particularly in wet conditions.

The race car previously belonged to Stefan Johansson, who also raced the car as Senna’s teammate during the 1984 season.

Still finished in the original livery from the Monaco race, the Toleman-Hart TG184-2 comes with a history file and set of studio photographs. Included in the price is a re-commissioning, which is required before it can be driven. Senna’s Toleman-Hart TG184-2 F1 race car can be viewed by appointment at Prindiville’s London showroom.
