Ayrton Senna Tribute With First-Gen Honda NSX Will Give You Goosebumps

Some say that Formula 1 was at its peak during the 1990s, and the most iconic racing drivers of that (or is it any?) era was Ayrton Senna.

The Brazilian began his motorsport career in karting, moving up to open-wheel racing and Formula 3, before making his debut in Formula 1, with Toleman-Hart, in 1984. The following year he moved to Lotus-Renault, only to join Alain Prost at McLarenHonda in 1988, which is also when Senna won his first World Championship.

Before losing his life during the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, at the Imola track, in Italy, Ayrton was voted as the best and most influential Formula One driver of all time in different motorsport polls, and besides his memory, his legacy lives on through one iconic car: the Honda NSX.

Senna helped the Japanese come up with the impressive sports car and convinced them to update the chassis and suspension, after he drove it hard on several tracks, including the Nurburgring, which is why this filmmaker, located in the Netherlands, has chosen the NSX in order to pay tribute to Senna.

No narration was needed for this 3-minute and 24-second long footage, as the background audio from several clips that show the late racing driver, along with the delicious growl provided by the V6 lump, are more than enough to make you want to click play for the second time.
