The Icon is a living piece of history, built for life on the race circuits of Europe and has been home to three Formula One drivers, two being World Champions. In 1997 the then current Formula One World Champion Jacques Villeneuve commissioned a very special motorhome to be hand built by the USA company Newell. 18 months later and the first million dollar RV was completed. Jacques spent his early years touring the Formula One race circuits in a motorhome with his father Gilles Villeneuve, so he knew precisely how he wanted his to be. With no expense spared, what we now call the Icon was created.
The motorhome was built to the highest specification using the most luxurious fittings and innovative ideas available, a real home from home with a 5 star feel. Mika Salo, the Finnish Formula One driver, bought the Icon from Jacques and had the distinctive red and flame design hand airbrushed by two specialist Swedish artists. The Icon then went on to become a base for the 2009 Formula One World Champion, Jenson Button, who owned it from 2003 until 2011. Putting his own finish on the Icon, Jenson travelled in style throughout Europe, maintaining her in first class condition.
Not just a home for the world of Formula One Champions, the Icon has also stylishly accommodated other world famous celebrities. Even today, the same support team work for Icon Experiences that took care of the Formula One drivers and celebrities that have stayed in her. So you can be assured that you will receive the same experience and level of pampering that her previous owners and guests received.
