Sculpture has three cars mounted onto it.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed has unveiled its central feature which celebrates the 100th anniversary of BMW.

Designed by Gerry Judah, the sculptor consists of three sweeping steel curves designed to invoke a feeling of speed and dynamism.  Each of the curves pay tribute to BMW's success in motorsport and have a car mounted onto them.  The models include a 328 Mille Miglia Roadster, the Le Mans-winning BMW V12 LMR, and the Gordon Murray-designed Brabham-BMW BT52.

Since BMW is the featured marque of this year's event, the company will have an assortment of different models on display including a 1965 1800 TI/SA and a 328 Touring Coupe which won the Mille Miglia in 1940.  Motorcycle fans will also be able to check modern and classic bikes including a 1966 R50 S Kaczor, a 1976 R90S TT, and a WR750 Kompressor from 1929. The company will also showcase the 2002 Hommage concept which recently debuted at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and a 1927 Klemm L25 aircraft which is powered by a BMW five-cylinder radial engine.
