It is evident from our long years of market experience that the essence of truly collectible and iconic competition cars is surely a combination of several very significant factors.
The crème de la crème cars upon the very pinnacle of collectibility each have an individually unique and completely verifiable racing history, jeweled by significant success. They also embody the finest standards of contemporary competition-car design and construction. They often embody design and manufacturing technology that is a joy to behold, intricate to the eye and often highly innovative. And, in the most desirable cases, they will have the closest and most intimate historic bond with a truly iconic and charismatic racing hero…
This 1993 McLaren-Ford MP4/8A Formula One car is the very machine with which the late and legendary three-time World Champion Driver Ayrton Senna scored the record-breaking sixth — and last — of his historic race victories right here in the Monaco Grand Prix.
