“THE FINAL LAP” Art on Senna by Geoffrey Escudero

“The Final Lap”

Escudero’s tribute to Senna uses an exhaust designed for the McLaren MP4/6, the car that the Brazilian drove to title victory in 1991. No one can say for sure that this actual exhaust was fitted to a car Senna definitely drove, but its 1991 McLaren provenance is unquestioned.

It is presented it in a way that would convey Senna’s strength of character. In this, Escudero was inspired by the arrangement of the system’s 12 pipes, which, he thought, resembled the muscles and structure of a human chest. With this in mind, he decided to present the exhaust vertically. Attached to a stainless-steel pole fixed to a heavy steel plinth clad in carbon fibre, the sculpture is 230cm tall, bringing the system to eye level for maximum impact. Poignantly, he called the sculpture The Final Lap.

THE COMPONENTS

A superb and ultra rare opportunity. A genuine, used piece F1 history developed exclusively for the Honda RA121E V12 engine, and fitted in the Marlboro McLaren-Honda Formula 1 cars. These exhausts were designed and fabricated for the McLaren MP4/6, as driven by Ayrton Senna in the 1991 season, winning the last of his three Formula 1 World Championships. This stunning V12 exhaust system has been in a notable artist and private collectors’ hands from 1996 to 2021 until we used them to create “The Final Lap” sculpture. It is only being offered for sale to fund other projects. It comes with detailed provenance, documentation, and has been featured in Autocar Magazine in February 2023.
