Fancy owning Ayrton Senna's 1984 Toleman TG-184-2 Formula One car? If so, bid for
this mighty machine at Silverstone Auction's Spring Sale on May 16th 2012. Alternatively,
how about Senna's 1982 Ralt RT3 Formula 3 car? Its estimate is £110,000 to £125,000 –
so the F1 car could sell for considerably more. Less bank busting prospects include a mini
Damon Hill helmet and a quarter scale David Coulthard helmet. Both are signed, and estimated
at £60 to £100 and £60 to £120 respectively. Not much for pieces of Formula One folklore.
But what about something you could drive? My favourite is the 1970 Jaguar E-Type 4.2
Series II 2+2 Coupé. This has been restored and finished with striking black paint. Must
be worth every penny of its £50,000 to £60,000 estimate. Or, how about the 1973 Porsche
911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring? This, according to Silverstone Auctions, is fully restored and
prepared for light competition work with FIA HTP papers and passport. Surely, it is worth
its £190,000 to £210,000 estimate too. Other prospects include the striking 1958 MGA
1500 (£10,000 to £15,000), the speedy 1988 Ford RS200 (£115,000 to £130,000), and the
1933 BSA TW33 Supersport (£8,000 to £10,000). Imagine turning up for work in that thing.
