celebrated itself at the Goodwood Festival of Speed
last year, and the sign it hung out front as advertisement
was a 135-foot statue
with a 1937 Auto Union at one end and R8
V10 at the other. This year Alfa Romeo
will be doing the major celebrations, blowing out 100 candles for its centennial soiree, and it has unveiled its statue on the Goodwood
lawn. If tradition holds, the statue was designed by Gerry Judah
and according to Motor Trend
, called "the most stylish and memorable sculpture ever crafted for the event." Hmmm...
On the left is one of the only two P2 racers left, and this particular example won the 1925 Gran Prix World Championship. On the right, an 8C Competizione. In the middle is... well, something red and swoopy, which we'll suppose is a fitting enough representation of 100 years of Alfas.
