Designer Gerry Judah attached Land Rovers to a 34-metre high steel framework at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England last weekend.

The Land Rover Sculpture was commissioned by Land Rover (surprise surprise) and was fabricated by Littlehampton Welding, which also made Thomas Heatherwick's East Beach Cafe.

    Amazing fantasy

  • stev

    its not art, its not a sculpture. I guess it is an advertisment display to show city drivers what theese cars could do if there wouldn’t be gravity…. ?

  • Jay

    gerry not jerry

  • Azeem

    utterly superfluous!! for a landrover.what happened to sustainable issues?

  • abe

    Very expressive.

  • ALISON

    Looks like an OSA London project?

    Price of steel these days, it must have cost a fortune!!

  • Miss Golightly

    Nice to see the 110 was the one that made it to the top.
    Are there oily puddles on the ground to make it authentic?
    Was this Ford Land-Rover or Tata Land-Rover?

  • tom

    i have no words to express how amazed i am about this project!
    its simplicity delivers the message straight away!
    amazing advertising as well as piece of art!

    congrats to all involved on it!

  • peter k

    somebody understands what makes these vehicles so interesting – makes a change vs. the usual stuff

  • thomas holm frandsen

    that may be the worst piece i have seen i a long time…
    not only is it stupid… it looks bad.
    made by money, not skill.

  • Suavovic Leonius

    Its amazing, perfect

    Oh dear a mistake, On the seventh photo the steel works looks like a stallion and with a bit more steel it could be a stallion.
    A few Ferraris and there you have a buyer for an old Land Rover sculpture.
    Not bad and its green to re-cycle.
    Mind you so are kit-cars and i have a Pembleton Brooklands with the BMW motorcycle engine.
