In the midst of is centenial celebration, Alfa Romeo has commissioned the construction of a sculpture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.  The Centenary sculpture features the 1925 Alfa P2 Grand Prix championship winner, and the current Alfa 8C Competizione.

Modeled after the company’s Cloverleaf badge, the sculpture was built in front of the Goodwood House from a design by artist Gerry Judah.  “Translating their connection and representing the best of all that is Alfa Romeo, there was no better symbol to take inspiration from than Alfa’s famous Cloverleaf badge, which has donned past, present and hopefully future high performance Alfa Romeos,” Judah said.  “The easiest part of this project was choosing a representative colour – which of course had to be Alfa Red.”

In addition to the sculpture, the company has brought at least one car from every decade the firm has been in operation.  The cars range from the 1914 A.L.F.A. 40/60 HP Corsa to the 2010 Giulietta and 2010 MiTo Cloverleaf.  20 cars in total will be put on display by the Italian automaker.

“Alfa Romeo has one of the most enviable pedigrees of any motor manufacturer, and a history that has become legend,” said Charles Gordon-Lennox, Goodwood FoS founder and the Earl of March and Kinrara.  “With this year’s Festival celebrating ‘The Passion for Speed’ there couldn’t be a more appropriate marque to celebrate this with.”
