ITEM OF THE WEEK 1991 Ayrton Senna Original World Championship Winning McLaren MP4/6 F1 Shock Cover Front Nose
Original nose cone/shock cover from Ayrton Senna’s 1991 Championship winning McLaren MP4/6. This amazing piece of memorabilia has all of the correct original sponsors’ branding logos like Marlboro, Honda, Tag Heuer, Shell, Goodyear and more. The dimensions of the all-carbon nose measures 57 inches long and 15 inches at the widest make it a visually impressive piece of Senna’s last championship season to display.
Senna is arguably the greatest driver in Formula One history, and his career likely would have stacked up even better had he not perished in the fateful 1994 crash at Imola at the still young age of 34.
Senna won three World Championships (1988, 1990 and 1991) with runner-up finishes in 1989 and ’93. He won 41 races (fifth all-time) with 65 poles (third), but it was his qualifying dominance during a three-year period that likely will never be duplicated.
Senna had a streak of 24 front-row starts, including 23 poles, from 1988-1989. After qualifying fifth at Phoenix, he won four more poles to give him 27 poles in 29 races in the Honda Marlboro McLaren.
Senna won 10 or more poles in a season three times — 13 each in 1988 and ’89, with 10 in ’90. He won races in nine consecutive seasons, including eight in 1988, seven in ’91 and six each in ’89 and ’90.
This stunning and incredibly rare piece from that iconic McLaren, driven by the legendary Brazilian racer, is now available. Don’t hesitate to add it to your collection as you will likely never see another amazing authentic piece of F1 history like this again for some time.
