A sculpture of Brazilian race legend Ayrton Senna will be up for bids next month at a COYS auction in Nurburgring.
It has been 17 years since the three-time F1 champion, Ayrton Senna from Brazil passed away, but his memory continues to live in the hearts of fans and possibly a lucky collector's wall. A sculpture of Senna's McLaren MP4/6 F1 racer is being put up for auction courtesy of International Car auctioneers, COYS. The auction will take place at their Nurburgring event on August 13th. The F1 racer was dismantled by McLaren in 1992 and later given to artist Jay Burridge.
Jay turned it into the enormous Airfix kit masterpiece that will soon hang on one very fortunate and bidder's wall. The large sculpture was first unveiled July 16th at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire when COYS had hosted its annual Concours d'Elegance and now finds its way heading over to the famous Nurburgring in Germany. Pricing for the sculpture is believed to reach somewhere in the neighborhood of £30,000 to £50,000.
