Niki’s 1984 Championship winning McLaren MP4/2, 1.5 Litre, 90° V6 TAG-Porsche turbo engine, 650 bhp in race set-up and up to 800 bhp in qualifying set-up i.e. with maximum turbo pressure

NIKI LAUDA (* 22. Februar 1949 in Wien; † 20. Mai 2019 in Zürich), an intelligent man, a street-fighter, a three-times racing world champion, his comeback after the accident at the Nürburgring stands as the most courageous act we’ve seen any sportsperson ever make.

Racer, fast, breathtaking, inspiring.

1st May 2019 sees the 25 year anniversary of Senna’s death.

The image of Ayrton Senna in his fire-proof racing hood was taken by Jon Nicholson at Imola on the Saturday morning before the first practice.
