The car currently belongs to Robert McFagan, a resident of East Sussex, who acquired the NSX during a trip to the Algarve in 2013. Since then, it has been a treasured part of his collection. The car not only comes with a rich history but also boasts a modest mileage of 39,100 miles and is in excellent condition, preserved with a partial service history. The NSX, known for its engineering influenced by Senna's insights, offers a unique combination of luxury and performance, attributes that Senna himself appreciated during his lifetime.
