Latest Videos from Goodwood Festival of Speed

Goodwood 2014 Centrepiece Sculpture - MercedesTwo rather special Mercedes-Benz videos from Goodwood have now been released. The first tells the story behind the incredible centrepiece structure for this year’s Festival of Speed. The second takes a brief glimpse at Mercedes in action at the famous Goodwood event.

Goodwood 2014 Centrepiece Sculpture

The Central Feature at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed – the sculpture soaring 26 metres over Goodwood House, weighing 160 tonnes and measuring 90 metres in length - is the most complex and ambitious yet conceived and is a fitting celebration of 120 years of motorsport heritage by Mercedes-Benz and its founding fathers.

Two cars spanning 80 years form an integral part of the sculpture – a replica of the 1934 Mercedes-Benz W 25 Silver Arrow, like that raced by Manfred von Brauchitsch to victory “first time out” at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and a MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 W04, the same chassis raced by Lewis Hamilton in 15 Grands Prix in 2013.
