Ayrton Senna Stormtrooper Racing Helmet

Nov 23, 2015

Category: Gear

One of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time, the late Ayrton Senna, died on the track 20 years ago during the San Marino Grand Prix. The 34-year-old Brazilian had already won three Formula One world championships and was surely not done nabbing trophies. Here he gets the kind of posthumous honor that would make any Star Wars fan’s dreams come true: a Stormtrooper racing helmet.

The helmet, made by Andrew Ainsworth of Shepperton Design Studios, uses the original molds he used for the actual 1977 film. Artist Jason Brooks has done the rest, decorating it with the appropriate paint and decals that Senna would’ve worn. Even if you’re not a sci-fi fan, you can’t deny the tastiness here. It’s all for the Art Wars exhibition at London’s Saatchi Gallery.
