Senna NSX by NasG85 Senna NSX by NasG85
Hi!

This is a tribute Ayrton Senna da Silva,a Brazilian racing driver and a three-time Formula 1 champion. He was recognized for having raw qualifying speed and able to outperform the expectations of all around him especially in tricky,wet conditions. His superhuman efforts at times made his other professional racing colleagues look average at best.

His yellow helmet bared the colors of Brazil(Yellow, green & blue). It was instantly recognizable on the track. It was my choice for the NSX's color scheme.

He was killed in an accident in 1994 at Imola(San Marino) when his car veered of track an hit the wall...

He was considered Honda's main innovator in convincing the company to stiffen the NSX chassis further after testing the car at Honda's Suzuka GP circuit in Japan.Senna was given two cars by Honda. The newer one, a black 1993 model, license plate BSS-8888 (the letters meaning Beco - a childhood nickname - Senna Silva and the number 8 is a reference to his first F1 championship in 1988) is still in possession of his family.*wikipedia

Made in Softimage 2012, MR, AE

I've been hearing something about a brand new NSX model on 2012. Is this true?

This is such a fitting tribute to Senna. I love the fact that this car has a story that relates to one of its greatest innovators.

Long Live Senna

Yeah it's such a shame. In '94 Schumacher was in a competitive car and would have been an awesome duel for the next few years( unless Senna retired being 34 at the time), cut short as a new rivalry was just beginning...

Well done, although, and I know that they are hard to get right, but the headlights look odd - other than that nice work . .
