Senna's Toleman up for sale for £1 million

The Toleman-Hart car with which Ayrton Senna made his Formula 1 debut has been put up for sale, for £1 million.

The TG184-2, the car which Senna used during his rookie season in 1984, can be viewed by appointment at Prindiville's London showroom.

Previous owners of the car include former F1 driver Stefan Johansson.

The Toleman is in "exceptional condition" and retains the livery used by Senna during the spectacular 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, where the Brazilian drove to second place behind Alain Prost.

"I don't believe in the paranormal," said Prindiville's founder Alex Prindiville, "but sometimes when I'm working in our London showroom late at night I feel a presence, a change in the atmospherics of the room.

"This only started happening after we took delivery of the ex-Ayrton Senna Toleman-Hart F1 car that we're selling on behalf of its owners. It's not a spooky feeling, but I definitely get the sensation that I'm not alone.

"Then again, perhaps the goosebumps are simply because I know what a fantastic history this car has, and its ultimate association with one of motorsport's great heroes and great tragedies."
