Niki Lauda Limited Edition of 25 McLaren Racing Paul Oz Bronze Statue
Paul Oz bronze of Niki Lauda, unveiled at McLaren on the third anniversary of Niki’s passing, May 2022.
The indomitable Niki Lauda, unarguably one of the most revered characters of F1 history. Not just because of his fast and fluid driving style, life dedicated to motorsport and well-documented triumph against adversity – but because of who he was as a person. So, to be tasked with creating a life-size memorial of such an iconic character, was truly daunting, never mind receiving that phone call on the very day that his passing was announced.
Just two weeks later driving back from McLaren HQ with Niki’s race suit and helmet in the footwell didn’t ease this pressure… but provided the ultimate realism, DNA even, to this project. Celebrating Niki’s 3rd world title, for McLaren, sealed at the final championship round in Estoril, beating Prost by just half a point. The pose is based on a fleeting three fingered salute as Prost ushered Niki onto the top step of the podium – a little artistic licence to swap his podium cap out with his ubiquitous Parmalat red cap, giving Niki his helmet to hold, that being a driver’s signature, and half a step forward for dynamic.
This 35kg/110cm bronze of Niki Lauda would make a stunning addition to anyone’s motorsport collection! This edition is limited to just 25 pcs world wide.
