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.

Attached Image Previously owned by car collector Aaron Hsu, the McLaren MP4/8-6 was sold off by McLaren to him around 10 years ago and has been basically untouched since its last race

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
