The gigantic sculpture was unveiled to the public on July 16th in England, when Coys hosted its annual Concours d’Elegance and auction.

Ayrton Senna's former manager, Dennis Rushen (seen in photo), was there to see it unveiled. “I was impressed with the sculpture. Such a clever idea and it really stands out as something different. Often at race meetings, Senna would fly his radio-controlled helicopter. He was really into model making and would have appreciated the concept.”

There has been renewed interest in Ayrton Senna since the “Senna” movie went on general release, and the auction house has received a huge amount of interest in the sculpture since it appeared in their catalogue. The company believes it will sell for up to $80,000.

The Formula 1 car was dismantled by McLaren and given to artist Jay Burridge, who turned it into the gigantic sculpture in 1992.
