Leica is a real brand. It was featured in many our previous articles and when Leica launches anything new, we are on the spot.
This time we present here older one which was released last year. Leica X1 black "Jochen Rindt" Edition commemorates the 40th anniversary of Jochen Rindt's death. The famous Formula 1 world champion from 1970 is the icon of the racing world and one of the first sport pop-star.
Leica in collaboration with Leica Shop from Vienna pays tribute to this wonderful racer thanks to this specially designed X1, which was produced in the edition of 68 pieces only. Each of them is equipped with the special covering, engraved and numbered top plate and an original photograph of Jochen Rindt by Peter Coeln taken on the Salzburgring on August 30th, 1970, 6 days before his tragic crash in Monza. The print is signed and numbered by the photographer.
