An F1 car driven by the late Ayrton Senna during his first ever Monaco Grand Prix has emerged for sale for an eye-watering £875,000.<br />
<br />
The Toleman-Hart TG184 was driven by the legendary Brazilian in 1984, in a race that sparked his legendary feud with Alain Prost.<br />
<br />
The weather conditions were so appalling on the day that it became obvious the event could not run its full-distance of 76 laps without exceeding the strict two-hour duration limit. <br />
<br />
In his 1½-liter, 4-cylinder, 600bhp Toleman-Hart, Senna was chasing-down race leader Alain Prost's more powerful McLaren at the staggering rate of 3 seconds per lap.<br />
<br />
Then, when Senna had closed the gap behind Prost to barely seven seconds, the race was brought to what many considered to be a premature end, after only 31 laps.
