The Bernie Edition Opus is the Ultimate F1 Christmas Gift
For the F1 fan who has everything, and a spare US$1-million (give or take) to splash out on, this is perhaps the ultimate Formula One Christmas Gift: The F1 Bernie Edition Opus.
The BERNIE Edition is a one-of-a-kind book. No, not a 'book', an opus. And owning it comes with the added bonus of being able to party F1-style like Mr E. for a whole year.
A bespoke Champions Edition Opus, made in partnership with Asprey, with a pure silver plate on the cover including the official Asprey hallmark. It's hand signed by Mr Ecclestone himself, as well as by every living Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship winner (22 of them in all).
The carbon fibre clamshell presentation box has been designed exclusively for the BERNIE Edition. Using pure silver, his iconic 'Bernie' signature sits on the front cover of the the gunmetal grey carbon fibre.
The colour was specifically chosen by Mr Ecclestone, which distinguishes it from the standard black carbon fibre clamshell’s that are paired with the regular Champions Editions. The interior is high grade leather in a contrasting grey, a home fit for such a unique and unprecedented publication as The Official Formula 1 Opus - BERNIE Edition.
