The work is a media mixed work on canvas. This racing car built for the racing driver “Birkin” convinces even today with its beauty and is a heavy testimony of the eternal human desire to move at dangerously high speed. He was also called the “beast” because of his famous loud droning and his unruly power. Not to mention the “Union Jack” may stay on the car. It is the coat of arms of the Paget family who financed the race car. In 1988, Ralph Lauren acquired this vehicle. The applied colors take into account the time and visualize the unbridled power of the car. The work belongs to the series of the artist “Art you can drive”, which will consist after completion of the 6 most beautiful cars from the famous collection of the fashion designer “Ralph Lauren”. It is a homage to the beauty of these classic cars.
