Alien Supercar Sculpture for MPH 2010
In fact, RoboSteel is building a supercar sculpture by using parts taken from hundreds of different cars, which will weigh just 500kg and stand at over one meter tall.
After the components will be welded together, the sharp edges will be smoothed and polished and then the completed car will be coated with several layers of lacquer to protect it from the elements.
According to its creators, the sculpture will take approximately 750 hours to complete and will be shipped to the UK from Ireland in four separate pieces, before being reassembled for the first show.
RoboSteel will use two drawings to craft the Alien Supercar. The first one, created by Toonrama, is based on the designs and structures of south Indian temples and the Kirtimukha sculptures that are positioned at the entrance to these temples. Dave Murphy from Dublin Ink has added an Alien theme to a second design drawing.
“This is the first time we’ve used our design concept to create a supercar. The initial design for the car was created by our art designer Toonrama,” Piyanuch Chanphet, the owner of Robosteel, said in a release.
“All of our previous projects have been focused on building alien and futuristic creatures but we’ve been involved with the MPH Show for a couple of years now and it feels like the right time to develop our style, and design a concept car. This sculpture when completed will be one of a kind and destined to become a museum piece in the future.”
MPH The Prestige & Performance Motor Show featuring Top Gear Live will take place at Earls Court from November 4-7 and the NEC in Birmingham between November 11-14, 2010.
