The 44 tonne sculpture, created to mark the car brand's centenary, features a vintage Audi and a modern car racing into the sky.

Here's a little bit of text from Judah:

--

This 44 tonne, 32 metre high innovative sculpture for the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2009 was sponsored by Audi to commemorate its centenary year.

Designed by Gerry Judah it celebrates Audi's achievements in motor sport with the legendary 1937 Auto Union Streamliner and the recently launched R8 V10 sports car at either end of a dramatic "swoosh" of tyre tracks, as if they are driving off into the sky.

    I really like it, and it’s nice that the public can actually touch it and sit on it. The cars in the air really adds weight to it.

  • Joe

    As my namesake said, I also like these cars in the air. It has nice power or better to say speed.
