1958 Grand Prix of Cuba at Havana poster signed by Juan Manuel Fangio.
This limited edition reprint measures 28×19″ / 71x48cm and comes with a signing photo and Fangio’s original business card. The artwork shows a retro style painting of a Lancia Ferrari D50. This event was made famous as Fangio was taken hostage during a political coup in 1958.
Less than 100 of these posters were signed by Fangio on May 1/94 – the very same day Ayrton Senna died, and tragically a few days before Juan had a heart attack. This means they are among his last signatures in an edition, ever!
