Attached Image Bernie Ecclestone has purchased Ayrton Senna's McLaren Formula One car that won the Monaco Grand Prix in 1993. It cost him S$6.7 million.

Attached Image Sold at Bonhams auction in Monaco, the McLaren MP4/8-6 actually uses a Cosworth V8 engine supplied by Ford instead of the Honda engines Senna is usually associated with. The Cosworth engine was regarded to be inferior to the top contenders during that era.
