Aford Awards Create the Most Expensive Trophy to Date
Since creating the biggest trophy in motorsports we’ve been inspired to dream bigger and better, that’s when the idea came about to trump the current world’s most expensive trophy, the original authentic FIFA World Cup.
It only seemed fitting to create the ‘Fortune 40 Trophy’ the world’s most expensive trophy in tribute of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which will commence later this year ahead of our 40th anniversary.
The prototype of the trophy features 2,200 diamonds & a single ruby, as seen in the images below.
Standing at 28 inches tall, 18.5 inches wide and 10.5 inches deep, our Fortune 40 trophy is much larger than the current FIFA World Cup which stands at 14.5 inches tall.
The one-of-a-kind trophy made from sterling silver plated iron is nothing less than opulent – encrusted with approximately 2,200 1ct colour D diamonds of a round brilliant cut and a VS clarity, accompanied by a 1.54ct untreated Mozambique Ruby worth £10k each. With a total value of approximately £23m ex VAT, the Fortune 40 Trophy would be the world’s most expensive trophy.
A replica of the trophy can be seen below.
When we met with the team at KMTV earlier in the year we discussed how we made the biggest trophy in motorsports for the World Endurance Championships and our links to local Kent football clubs.
