Dubbed ‘Citihenge,’ the giant installation will move to the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this month.
A total of 18 scrap cars were used to construct this unique replica of the UK's iconic Stonehenge. Named Citihenge, the installation is the brainchild of Skoda, led by sculptor Tommy Gun, and took three months to create. Citihenge is over five meters tall, each henge being five meters wide, and the total structure weighs 36 tons. "The Citihenge project has been the most amazing challenge. Stonehenge is a huge, iconic structure and the Citihenge replica is too.
"It is made entirely from old car parts, which taps into my own childhood growing up on a farm where I used to love building and creating things with pieces of discarded machinery," said Gun. Currently sitting on London's Southbank at Potters Fields celebrating the launch of Skoda's Citigo city car, Citihenge is set to tour the UK, which will include a visit to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Skoda Citigo is now in showrooms priced at £7,630. Available in 3- and 5-door, power comes from a single 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline unit with 60 or 75hp on tap offering fuel economy as high as 68.9mpg.
