The Goodwood Festival of Speed is just a couple of days away, and since this year’s featured marque is Audi, the Earl of March has commissioned a giant art piece in the automaker’s honor. The art piece looks like a part of some Hot Wheels collection, only it’s massive. It is 135 feet tall, weighs 40 tonnes and has a 1937 Auto Union streamliner and an Audi R8 V10 at either end.
This sculpture, which looks like a swoosh of tire tracks has been designed by Gerry Judah, and the self supporting structure is made entirely out of steel. Since Audi is celebrating its centenary this year, having this sculpture to its name would add a nice touch to the celebrations.
