It was really great to see the C5 on The One Show tonight 9.1.15
Shame it was only a fleeting 2-3 minutes long but great that such a superb iconic peice of technically crafted history is getting the recognition it deserves.
Clarkson, May and Hsmmond should do a feature on this brilliant, ahead of its time, masterpiece

It is a rare sight to we them on tv. It good there getting recognised. The engineering and design of them is like nothing else. My c5 is a month away from its 30th birthday and is completely orginal and unmodified and is still running like a Swiss watch

I'd love to ask Ed a few questions
How did you get hold of Ayrton Senna's C5
How much would it be worth today and is it stored in a museum?
Margate's way too far for me to get to but I'd gleefully join in any rally's up around the North West if anyone knows of any!!!
I take mine around Heaton Park in Manchester and the looks I get are astonishing!!!
I expect everyone to know what I'm sat in, but today's modern Facebook and Twitter users take pics of me thinking I'm in a supercar mobility scooter :)

Hi all,
I also take my C5's to Heaton park as only live 2 miles away. We could meetup when the weather gets better.
