Arsenal FC Citroen C4 to be Auctioned
text size: A- A+
Dubbed the ‘Ultimate Arsenal Fans’ Car’, the vehicle was designed by renowned cartoonist and satirist Gerald Scarfe and features images of modern Gunners heroes such as Arsene Wenger, Gael Clichy, Manuel Almunia and Robin Van Persie.
Also sharing her ideas for the car was 17-year-old Harriet Eldridge who was diagnosed with cancer when she was 14. The interior has also been styled with great attention to the Arsenal fans, having been decorated with bespoke stitching on the leather seats.
“Meeting Harriet, who had cancer when she was 14, underlined for me the importance of this excellent charity, and getting together with the players and learning about Arsenal’s rich heritage helped to inspire my designs for the car,” artist Gerald Scarf said.
“This is something different for us to be involved in and although we all play for the same team, we had very different ideas which can be seen throughout the car’s design. Manuel spoke of Club heritage, I had the idea of pace and style, and Gael had an all together different idea about ‘planet Arsenal!’,” Robert van Persie, whose father is an artist as well, commented on the special car.
“I guess that’s what’s wonderful about art and this car in particular, we all had our part to play and our own distinctive ideas,” van Persie added.
