Since 1997, artist Gerry Judah has built the main, car-themed structure for the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex, England. Held on the grounds of the Goodwood Estate, Judah’s colossal, flying car designs are a sight to behold.

Born and raised in West Bengal, India, Judah and his family moved to London, England when he was 10-years-old. The artist received his BFA from Goldsmiths College, completing his post-graduate studies in sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Arts.
