Silverstone Auctions has announced plans to auction a rare Toleman TG184-2 Formula One car driven by Ayrton Senna in his debut F1 season in 1984.

A highlight of the company’s Spring Sale, which takes place on May 16th, the car has been fully restored and is “capable of being raced or demonstrated globally.”

While Senna’s 1984 season wasn’t full of success, he drove this particular model to a second place finish in the rain-soaked Monaco GP, as well as third place in the British and seventh place in the Canadian Grand Prix’s.

According to Nick Whale, the managing director of Silverstone Auctions, “We are thrilled to bring this iconic race car to auction as it’s undoubtedly one of the most important lots we’ve ever offered under the hammer.”

The racing car had been in private ownership for the past 16 years.

The auction house has not put a starting price on the Senna’s Toleman TG184-2, but like everything else in Formula One, it won’t be cheap!
