Auction Block: Ayrton Senna’s Personal Go-Kart

Aug 21, 2018

Category: Rides

Ayrton Senna was one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers of all time. His tragic death in the San Marino Grand Prix was a devastating loss for the racing community. Now, you can own the personal Go-Kart belonging to Senna; it’s one of the last vehicles the legendary racer drove before his death in 1994.

Senna’s first love was karting, the field in which he originally began his motorsport career before moving onto F1 racing. He even had a personal go-kart track in his backyard, at his hometown of Tatui in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. It was there that he last piloted this kart, as records indicate, on March 19, 1994. Karting was his first love; Senna participated in his first race when he 13 in a 1-horsepower kart made by his father. The fully restored kart featured in the auction is powered by a two-stroke, single-cylinder “elbow warmer” engine, and does not feature a gearbox.

Purchase: $64,000+
