Limited to just 50 numbered pieces and signed by Sir Stirling Moss, this print features the legendary British driver in the streamlined W196 Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix on the occasion of the Italian Grand Prix, held at Monza in September 1955. Driving the legendary Silver Arrows, Moss was runner-up to his team-mate Juan Manuel Fangio in the 1955 Driver's Championship and this print perfectly captures the advanced aerodynamics used on the high speed circuits like Monza, where top speed was all important.
