During the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014, a sculpture of Mercedes-Benz luxury car was created by Gerry Judah. Such sculpture is soaring over Goodwood House around 85 feet high, measuring 295 feet long and weighing 160 tons.
Actually Judah’s installation features two cars, the 1934 Mercedes-Benz W25 “Silver Arrow” and the 2013 Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 W04 placed in opposite directions. He cleverly blends the with the present in a very attractive way to give tribute to racing.
His sculpture which is bigger than their actual size can give an awesome feel to it as you will have an impression that the two cars are about to escape from a crash. And their track seems to emerge from the ground heading for the race track in the open sky.
The Silver Arrow won its first race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife 80 years ago with Manfred von Brauchitsch at the wheel. Since then, silver has always been picked as permanent color of the company’s competition cars. And we can see that the company still wants to keep their silver for their contemporary AMG Petronas Formula 1 car, meaning that even if the newest car still has to undergo technological improvement, it still features its traditional color.
