Skoda builds ‘Citihenge’ in the capital

To celebrate its new city car, the Citigo, Skoda has built a replica of Stonehenge on London’s Southbank, made entirely from recycled car parts. The design took three months to create and features 18 scrap cars. It’s five metres tall and weighs 36 tonnes – and features the Citigo as its centrepiece.

The design for Citihenge was led by Tommy Gun, a self-taught artist. He said: “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.”   

If you don’t get a chance to see the sculpture in London it’ll be moved to the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 28 June to 1 July
