BMW CENTENARY SCULPTURE, GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED 2016

Gerry Judah as Architects

Gerry Judah was commissioned by BMW to design and produce a sculpture for Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016 to commemorate the Bavarian marque’s centenary.


The sculpture features a BMW 328 Mille Miglia Roadster, Brabham-BMW BT52 F1 car and the 1999 Le Mans-winning BMW V12 LMR and are original working vehicles, not models.


It is 100 metres long and 40 metres high and is a monocoque shell made up from 816 square metres of laser-cut steel plate, an area three times the size of a tennis court. With enormous cantilevers supporting the three historic cars, the sculpture sits on a base 70cm wide where it hits the ground. Weighing 77 tonnes, it is incredibly lightweight for its size.
