Made of steel tubes weighing 150 tonnes, the E-type Jaguar sculpture at Goodwood this year soars 28 metres above the lawns outside Goodwood House.
Every year, the Goodwood Festival of Speed selects one automaker as its featured marque and commissions a unique sculpture in its honor. With the iconic Jaguar E-Type celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Goodwood has picked Jaguar for the seat of prestige at this year’s event, and this is the installation that will do the job.
The steel is supplied by Tata, Jaguar’s owner. In previous years the sculptures have incorporated actual cars, but the E-type was judged too small and delicate to hoist in the air so sculptor Gerry Judah designed this installation based on the iconic E-type. Bit heavier, mind: it weighs the same as 122 series-1 E-types.
