It was the car in which the legend began.

Ayrton Senna’s second place finish in the rain-shortened 1984 Monaco Grand Prix to Alain Prost signaled his arrival on the world stage. Senna, in the unfancied Toleman-Hart package, took the fight to Prost’s McLaren on a day when rain equalized the playing field.

The TG183B chassis number five, is now up for sale in the U.K., via a release out from Cars International.

After its active service, the car was then retired and retained by the team until it was sold to the U.S.A. and restored in the early 90’s by Mike Earl’s North American bases team in Los Angeles.

Now back in the U.K., the same car is now available for sale. With an original Hart Turbo engine, complete with a spare block from Toleman team and full documentation showing unbroken history since it left Toleman establishing the cars provenance and it’s unique place in F1 history.
