1987 Ayrton Senna Lotus helmet.
This amazing original Bell helmet was worn by Ayrton at the 1987 Belgian GP at Spa and other races in the Lotus 99T. It shows great signs of wear inside and out, and there are several race photos you can match it to, specifically the drink hole and the left side clip. The helmet was painted by SID in period, and is accompanied by a letter from the original recipient whom Senna gifted it to personally, and who has owned it up until we purchased it. There are even photos of the previous owner with Senna at the time he received it! The documentation is fantastic.
Ayrton only had around 5 or 6 helmets in 1987, this is the first original one from that year we have ever seen or handled…and no one has bought and sold more authentic Senna gear than we have.
It will of course come with our lifetime certificate of authenticity.
Very expensive, serious enquiries only.
