For the yearly event known as the Goodwood Festival of Speed held at the Goodwood estate, the Earl of March commissions a large scale piece of art to commerate the event. This season is no exception as the festival celebrates Audi’s 100th anniversary with this massive 135-foot tall sculputre created by Gerry Judah. The loop design features a tribute to both the present and the past as a 1937 Auto Union steamliner and a contemporary Audi R8 V10 at opposite ends. The self-supporting sculpture weighs a staggering 40 tons and required 100 ton cranes and a team of 12 men taking 4 weeks to construct.
