Skoda Stonehenge Replica Built in London from Cars
text size: A- A+
The sculpture, which has been unveiled in time for the evening of the Summer Solstice, was set up on London’s Southbank.
This huge piece of car art took three months to be completed by a team led by sculptor Tommy Gun. They used a total of 18 cars for the replica that in total now weighs 18 tons.
Tommy Gun, sculptor says: “The Citihenge project has been the most amazing challenge. Stonehenge is a huge, iconic structure and the Citihenge replica is too. It is made entirely from old car parts, which taps into my own childhood growing up on a farm where I used to love building and creating things with pieces of discarded machinery.”

?The Citigo embodies the future of driving and is the smartest option for forward-thinking city drivers." - Actually I think that would be Gordon Murray's T25/7. This is just a VW Up, which in turn is merely a car which is smaller than a Polo. The T-Car is far more of a leap forward. Also, 'Tommy Gun' is an awesome name.
