Mercedes-Benz sculpture unveiled at 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed [w/video]

Article by Christian A., on June 27, 2014

Lord March and Head of Mercedes-Benz Classic, Michael Block, unveiled today the Central Feature at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed this year’s sculpture that soars 26 meters over the Goodwood House. Weighing 160 tonnes and measuring 90 meters in length, the new sculpture was created by Gerry Judah and it is the most complex and ambitious yet conceived.

As you can see from the photos, the sculpture celebrates 120 years of motorsport heritage by Mercedes-Benz. The sculpture features two cars, a replica of the 1934 Mercedes-Benz W25 Silver Arrow raced by Manfred von Brauchitsch to victory ‘first time out’ at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, as well as a Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W04.

In unveiling the sculpture, Lord March explained: “This year’s Central Feature is the most architecturally and artistically challenging sculpture that we’ve ever had at Goodwood and it’s a testament to the out-of-the-box thinking of Gerry Judah, which is very much aligned with our philosophy of constant innovation around the Festival of Speed. The result is a truly spectacular sight for all our Festival of Speed visitors to see.”
