AYRTON SENNA'S 1993 MCLAREN-COSWORTH F1 CAR

In 1993, Ayrton Senna was the best driver in the world. That season would be the three-time World Champion's last with McLaren before moving to Williams in 1994, and the McLaren MP4/8 would prove to be underpowered and a mid-tier car — except in the hands of the master. Senna took his record sixth Monaco Grand Prix in the MP4/8A shown here, putting an exclamation point on his ability to drive a car far above what it was thought to be capable of. With the same chassis, engine, and transmission from the Monaco Grand Prix, this is one of the most historically significant F1 cars ever, driven by one of the best drivers in the sport.
