The secret is finally out. At it's annual 2017 Sports Art Unveiling in Montreal's upscale Patrick Mikhail gallery, the company unveiled the ULTIMATE homage to F1 driver's great, Ayrton Senna. The collection is entitled, "THE LAST RACE".
In fact, the company presented a crash piece from Senna's Williams FW16 nosecone. A car that was destroyed after Ayrton Senna's fatal accident on May 1st, 1994 in Imola. The nose cone was even exposed at the Official Ayrton Senna museum at the US Grand Prix, in the past. The nose-cone labeled at $75,000 is matched with a helmet painted by Sid Mosca, the original painter that painted Ayrton Senna's iconic yellow and green helmet. The helmet has become a symbol of an undying desire to win. The ultimate package also includes a certified 1994 Shoei X4 helmet AUTOGRAPHED by the late Senna and certified by PSA/DNA. The nose cone itself, a precious relic that a true collector would die for, comes with a triple certification letters documentation package, certifying the authenticity of it's origins and how the piece was acquired.
