Modern Design Pays Tribute to an Icon

A new modern sculpture showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex UK by the talented Gerry Judah rises 92 feet above ground weighing 350,000 lb which in actuality is equal to 135 real-life E-type Jaguars.   A deserving ode to an iconic, revolutionary motor-rebel, that withstood the test of time since its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961, Jaguar E-Type remains, as Enzo Ferrari described it “the most beautiful car ever made.”  Like its inspiration did 50 years ago, Judah’s awe-inspiring, unprecedented monument dwarfs anything that came before it, accurately depicting the symbol of speed, agility and luxury using 1,640 ft of 4ft diameter steel tube.  The essence of Judah’s intrepid modern design aesthetic is epitomized in the unlikely positioning of the sculpture, in lieu of doing the typical, Judah’s mammoth sculpture is standing horizontally on its front bumper, unaffected by gravity allowing for observes to appreciate the car’s unfading beauty and the sculpture’s ingenuity.
