Alfa Romeo and Goodwood have revealed the annual 'Central Feature' to form the centrepiece of this year’s Festival of Speed.

The statue will sit in front of Goodwood house throughout the weekend and features the Alfa Romeo 8C supercar alongside one of only two P2 racers in existence.

The Alfa P2 on the statue won the first world championship for grand prix cars in 1925 and is estimated to be worth between £15-20 million.

Last year’s statue celebrated Audi’s centenary and featured the 1937 Auto Union streamliner and the 2009 Audi R8 V10.

Alfa will be bringing over more than 50 its cars from its Museo Storic historic collection in Milan for the Festival, many of which have never been seen before in the UK. The firm’s new Giulietta hatch will also make its public UK debut.

Groan. Is a sculpture of a cactus a statue? I don't think so.

A statue is representational of the human or animal form and is sculpted, but a sculpture is not necessarily a statue. And that one on behalf of Alfa Romeo is pants, as is Wikipedia's dumb explanation. But it won't put me off Goodwood.
