1988 Ayrton Senna World Champion Replica Bell XFM-1 Marlboro Mclaren F1 Helmet
A fantastic replica of the late great Ayrton Senna’s 1988 McLaren F1 Drivers World Championship helmet. The stunning paintwork has been applied to an authentic Bell XFM-1 helmet, the exact model the Brazillian icon would have worn on his way to the first of his three World Championships. During the 1988 season Senna, driving a Honda-powered McLaren MP4/4, notched up eight wins and three second place finishes to amass 90 points. He would also rewrite the record books in the process. His eight wins in a season beat the old record at the time of seven, jointly held by Jim Clark (1963) and Alain Prost (1984). His 13 pole positions also beat the record of nine held by Nelson Piquet (1984).
The helmet bears Senna’s iconic design, with the yellow base color overlaid with green and blue bands representing the Brazilian national colors, a design scheme he wore throughout his brilliant career. It has all the correct decals from Marlboro, Banco Nacional and Boss applied to the helmet and the team engine supplier Honda sun strip on the visor. It has the beige interior Senna favored and the correct Snell-rated sticker (SA85).
This a great opportunity to add this eye-catching, conversation-starting piece to your collection.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
