Sébastien Ogier has already shown just how skilful he is on the four wheels of his Volkswagen Polo R WRC. And soon the two-time World Rally Champion will be speeding off on two wheels. On his visit to the Ducati plant, a Volkswagen subsidiary, in Borgo Panigale, just outside Bologna (I), Ogier received a limited edition Ducati motorcycle in recognition of his sporting success in the FIA World Rally Championship.

The Ducati 1199 Panigale S “Senna”, of which there are only 161 in the entire world, was built in honour of Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna who died in 1994, and was imported specially from Senna's home country Brazil.

“In my eyes, Senna is the greatest motorsport hero of all time. He's my idol,” said Ogier.

“The Ducati 1199 Panigale 'Senna' is a fantastic gift. It's a lovely way to commemorate Ayrton. Ducati has done a great job.”

Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neußer, Volkswagen board member for the “Development” division, handed over the key to the special edition at Volkswagen Motorsport's end of season party in Wolfsburg (D).
