Chassis: MP4-8A-6
This was the sixth of eight MP4/8s built in 1993. It was used by Ayrton Senna for eight races from the Spanish Grand Prix to the Italian Grand Prix. He drove MP4-8A-6 to a record breaking victory in the Monaco Grand Prix and scored a podium in France. In the remaining races Senna could do no better than three fourths and a fifth. For the final two races, the chassis served as a spare. It has since been one of the very few Formula 1 cars sold by Ron Dennis to a private individual. Still owned by the 'first' owner, the Monaco winning MP4/8 is seen here in action at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Meticulously prepared by Lanzante, it was driven by Ayrton's nephew and current Formula 1 driver, Bruno Senna.
