Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011 - central sculpture

Sponsored by Jaguar to celebrate 50 years of the timeless E-type, this year’s sculpture is 27m (90ft) high and has been carved into the form of an e-type from 150 tonnes of steel (equivalent to 122 Jaguar E-types).


The sculpture comprises half a kilometre of 1220mm (4ft) diameter steel tubes, while the surface is covered with four tonnes of paint. Its wheels are themselves the size of an ordinary car while 90 tonnes of concrete provide support for the structure under the ground.


Capita Symonds’ structures team once again worked with renowned sculptor Gerry Judah and Littlehampton Welding on the project.
