london-based artist and designer gerry judah has created a huge sculpture for the goodwood festival of speed, an event held annually in southern england. soaring 26 meters above the historic goodwood house, the work features two mercedes-benz racing cars speeding past each other in midair, connected though a 90 meter steel arch.

 

designed to commemorate 80 years since the world famous racing team started competing in their distinctive silver colorway, the two cars span decades of automotive history. plummeting towards the ground, the 1934 mercedes-benz W25 won at its first outing at the notorious nürburgring nordschleife, with manfred von brauchitsch behind the wheel. in the opposite direction, the current formula 1 team’s F1 W04 is installed – the vehicle which led nico rosberg to wins at both silverstone and monte carlo.
