Honda gave Senna the car as he had a hand in developing the NSX after testing it at the Suzuka GP circuit in Japan.

The red one he owned is now listed for sale. It has just over 39,000 miles on the clock.

Mr McFagan told the Telegraph: “I first bought the car in 2013 during a trip to the Algarve in Portugal and have owned it ever since where it has sat proudly at my estate in East Sussex. Senna’s red NSX was given to him by Honda who he had a commercial partnership with and Senna frequently used and was photographed with the car during his stays in Portugal.

“It’s been a real pleasure owning what is one of the most famous cars belonging to a true sporting legend.”

A short description on the online listing for the car simply reads: “Ayrton Senna’s personal NSX.”

“This Honda NSX was owned and driven by none other than Ayrton Senna, one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers of all time.

“This isn't just a car; it's a piece of Formula 1 history.”
