Gregory Johnston is an artist with a deep passion for the golden era of European motorsports, for this collection he chose to use the materials and fabrication methods of the traditional Italian carrozzeria (coachbuilders). Johnston’s work incorporates parts, styles and methodology used by the engineers at Ferrari on both their sports cars and prototype racers, spanning from the late 1950s until the early 1970s.
Johnston’s current collection is on display at Mark Borghi Fine Art Palm Beach, and each of the pieces you see here is for sale. It’s likely that many of them will end up in places like the Ferrari Headquarters in Maranello, Jay Leno’s Garage and perhaps one or two with Jay Kay – if you’d like to add one or two to your own collection you can click here to visit Mark Borghi Fine Art.
