James Hunt drove the Hesketh 308 during the 1974 Formula One season

James Hunt’s 1974 Hesketh 308 Forumla One car has sold for $385,476 at RM Auctions' May 10 sale in Monaco.

The car is one of only four produced during the 1974 season, which saw the team pull out a strong victory in the South African Grand Prix.

There were equally strong performances in 1975, with Hunt finishing in the top three in 10 separate races. Despite this, the team folded soon after Hunt left for McLaren in late 1975.

It was bought by British TV and radio personality Chris Evans.

Other lots in the sale included a racing suit worn by the legendary Ayrton Senna, which made $76,456.
