Kotokukiya has announced the release of a statue based on three-time World Grand Champion Formula One racer Ayrton Senna.  This is the first sports genre statue from the company.

  • Series 1 takes the famous scene from the 1993 Japan Grand Prix at Suzuka Circuit, where Ayrton is answering to the praise of his fans, a deeply memorable event for enthusiasts.
  • Stands over 30cm tall (1/6 scale), and uses cold cast as the definitive material, allowing the sculptor to recapture the motif in hyper-detailed accuracy.
  • Senna’s sign is printed on the base and package, creating a premium official look.
  • An “Official Ayrton Senna Foundation Proof of Authenticity Card” with hologram (teas scribosⓇ – Germany) serial numbering and hologram sticker with the same serial number is included in each package to add value for high-end collectors.
  • The item will be officially announced at the Brazilian Toy Fair in April 2009. It will initially be released in Senna’s home country of Brazil in July of 2009, and will be exclusively limited to 2500 pieces worldwide.


A second series is planed for March 2010 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of his birth.
