      Ok, so we all already love the Honda NSX and would Kill for one. Well, A dealer here in Brazil has Ayrton Senna's HONDA NSX for sale(the one he kept in Sao Paulo)...........How much, would you pay premium for Sennas personal NSX?

      No haters or trolls please



      BTW, the car that he kept in Brazil is a 91/92 Black Honda NSX. The one in the picture is a Red one he kept in Portugal.

      I would pay market value plus whatever I could finance as long as he gave me one driving lesson.

      I would probably pay enough to make my would-be account curse me out

      Coming from a major Senna fan, I wouldn't pay more than it's market worth. It would seem more fitting that something like that would be held by his family or Honda themselves, imho.

      To me, it's priceless. I agree with the poster above. It belongs in a museum.

      unfortunately, this is true. however, the man would probably want it to see the track every so often. i don't have the talent to drive it the way he'd like though...

      As much as I want and hopefully will have a NSX some day. I could never own this one, I could never do it the proper justice. Although I almost always hate when people do this, but I hope it is never driven on the street. this NSX needs to be preserved forever.

      I agree with this or it should go to a collector who will take top care of it.

      $500 - $750k seems about right. Maybe $1mm for a real Senna fan.

      To me it isn't significant enough for me to finance it and then not drive it. There are enough of these cars out there that I don't need to own one just because a legendary hotshoe kept it at one of his houses. I am sure that the person who can afford this car thinks I am just a peasant anyways.

      I just decided to post this because it hit really close to my memories. At the time, early 90's a uncle had a house in a condominium in Angra dos Reis, one of the few places Ayrton used to spend his off-seasons. I remenber one day, me and my cousins strolling along in our bikes and seeing the MOST HOTTEST FREAKING PIECE OF THING in this side of the equator. Senna's strolling by in (what I did'nt know at the time) a Black Honda NSX. I only got to see it once. Same can be said for Senna.

      Fast foward to about 2 years ago I was at "Aguas de Lindoia" one of the most prestigue car events here in Brazil. I am walking around the grass, trying keep myself away from the flow of people. I am walking behind a huge tent, closed of on the back. I see something Black and something red, instanly it got my attention. I walk around to the front of the tent. 2 NSX and one Prelude(yes, I know ). Anyways.......The NSX's one belonged to Ayrton Senna and one to his brother, Leonardo(Owner of SENNA IMPORT, the only Audi Distributor of South America up until 2002). The very same black car I had seen in my childhood stood before my eyes. I reasearched later and realized that Senna owned several NSXs. Something like 2 in Brazil, 2 in Portugal, 1 in Monaco, etc etc.

      Anyways, The 2 NSX(incluiding the one thats for sale) Are owned by collectors, they dont get driven around Sao Paulo crazy transit.

      there are very few things i'd be willing to pay any amount for:

      anything senna related - such as this nsx, and a ratm concert. i would gladly live in a shed, just as long as i had possession of an original senna helmet. bravo senna, bravo.

      I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, the bus would explode! I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."
