Honda NSX purchased for Senna by his best friend Antonia Braga for use during Senna's visits to his palace in Sintra.

Senna’s Black Honda NSX, purchased by his best friend “Braga”, comes to East Sussex from Portugal.

We have finally acquired Black Honda NSX that was purchased by Antonio Carlos de Almeida Braga who was a close personal friend, manager and mentor of Ayrton Senna. He purchased this NSX for the great driver to use when he visited his house in Sintra, Portugal north of Lisbon.  Senna already had another red NSX pictured above that was kept at his villa in the Algarve which we already own.  Antonia Braga ordered the same specification car that Ayrton had at his home in Brazil.  Senna stayed with the Braga’s on numerous occasions and would have been a guest when competing in the Portuguese Grand Prix in 1992/3 at nearby Estoril, endorsing his Honda contract by commuting in the NSX. This black Honda NSX with black leather and manual gearbox has covered just 31,800 miles and is in fantastic condition.  The service book shows Antonio Braga as the first registered owner recording the chassis and engine numbers.  It is just a three-owner car with a continuous line of history. These cars are now both in the UK in East Sussex. This car failed to sell at Silverstone auctions in 2014 and rather than take it back to Portugal, the owner has brought it to East Sussex.
