The Toleman TG184-Hart, chassis 02, with which Ayrton Senna made his first big splash in Formula One, is currently on sale at Prindiville, London’s global specialists in prestige car sales, for £1 million. The car’s provenance confirms that this is the machine the gifted Brazilian drove during his rookie F1 season, and in which he nearly won the rain-soaked 1984 Monaco Grand Prix despite starting 13th on the grid.
This early piece of Senna’s F1 heritage can be viewed by appointment at Prindiville’s London showroom. Previous owners of the Toleman include ex-F1 star Stefan Johansson, who also raced 02 during 1984 when he was briefly Senna’s teammate. The Toleman is in exceptional condition and comes complete with a thick history file and a full set of studio photographs.
There is one caveat, however, in that before any new owner can properly use the car it will require re-commissioning, work that is included with the purchase price. Prindiville can be contacted at email@example.com or by calling 44+(0)207-624-2911, and the car is available for viewing by appointment only.
