Giant car sculpture marks Festival of Speed

Sculptor Gerry Judah has worked with consultancy Capita Symonds to create a centrepiece sculpture for Goodwood Festival of Speed.


The 27m high structure has been shaped into the form of an E-type Jaguar from 150 tonnes of steel, using  500m of steel tubes covered in four tonnes of paint.

It’s wheels are the size of an ordinary car and the whole structure is set in 90 tonnes of concrete.

Capita Symonds and Gerry Judah work together every year on an annual sculpture for the event, tailoring its design to reflect a sponsor – which this year is Jaguar.

The car will stand for the duration of the event, which runs from today until Sunday, before being dismantled, with the steel tubes ‘ground into everyday objects’ according to event organisers.
