Ayrton Senna, known as one of the greatest drivers of all time is still a beloved and idolised driver to this day. The great man died during the San Marino Grand Prix at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Italy on May 1, 1994. It is considered as one of the saddest moments in the history of motorsports.
We still have one bit of Senna's lasting legacy in the form of the first-generation Acura NSX. Filmmaker Robbert Alblas from Netherlands managed to capture that bit of legacy in a gorgeous ode to a wonderful car.
While Honda was developing the NSX, the company turned inward to its motorsports program for tuning strategies. Ayrton Senna with his skills and knowledge helped to fine tune the NSX, which became a fantastic driving machine.
The engineers at Honda relayed on Senna to make NSX one of the best drivers car and they succeeded. While developing, Ayrton told the engineers to further stiffen the chassis and fine tune the suspension.
Senna drove hard at a number of tracks, including the Nurburgring. This is why the first-generation NSX was so good.
The short film is titled as "Senna's Legacy - The NSX." A video that doesn't need narration or a host. A beautifully shot video with some initial background audio from Senna clips.
