At £51,000 a piece, these limited edition crystal sculptures are a collectors dream.

The French house of Lalique ( and supercar maker McLaren have unveiled their Essence of Speed collaboration, a pulse-quickening ode to design that captures both icons in crystalline brilliance. The McLaren Cheetah sculpture is the first of three limited-edition creations Lalique will release over the next three years. Crafted in clear crystal via the lost-wax method, the collector’s piece commemorates McLaren’s Formula 1 world championships. Twenty examples of the full-size sculpture – measuring over 19 inches tall – are priced at £51,000 apiece; smaller versions are also available, starting at £2075.
