The 30th anniversary of Ayrton Senna’s first World Championship victory is being marked by this artwork.
In order to celebrate Senna’s first title victory in 1988, McLaren approached Unique & Limited to bring a defining moment from the season back to life. Together, we chose the San Marino Grand Prix – the race where the world would first realize just how special the Senna/McLaren pairing was, and how the team were about to dominate a season like never before. Our artwork depicts Senna’s McLaren MP4/4 with its unmistakable red and white livery, race worn, with the exact same dirt and detail that could be seen on race day.
As part of an unlimited edition, this very special artwork comes in 4 different designs. In addition, an exclusive Collector’s Edition as well as a Color of Speed variant are included in the collection.
Official licensed product of McLaren Racing Limited and Senna Foundation.
BEHIND THE SCENE
How it's done
Every image we create is based on a real-life historical event, so to assure accuracy, we put in long hours of research to piece together every little detail.
Once the concept is established, we set to work creating a 3D model using CGI. Studying every piece of reference material available, our artists essentially build a car from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer of detail – even down to the correct number of coats of paint.
We use offset lithography printing technology to consistently achieve high-quality image reproduction. The image data goes straight from our ultra-high-resolution digital files to the printing plates for a clean, precise print.
Paper density is measured in grams per square metre. After extensive testing we have decided this density is the ideal value for our artworks.
