Reflecting this year’s Festival of Speed theme, ‘Full Throttle – The Endless Pursuit of Power’, the central feature will focus on BMW’s motorsport successes.
As BMW celebrates its centenary year in 2016, the event will showcase BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce models, as well as BMW Motorrad motorcycles, which BMW says will demonstrate “its illustrious sporting past, alongside the stylish cars and bikes of its current range”.
The sculpture created by Gerry Judah will show the legendary BMW 328 Mille Miglia Roadster, the Gordon Murray-designed Brabham-BMW BT52, and the Le Mans-winning BMW V12 LMR.
This now-famous display in front of Goodwood House was first commissioned to Gerry Judah in 1997 when Ferrari took the role of central feature marque. Last year, Mazda and its legendary rotary-engined 787B Le Mans racer and LM55 Gran Turismo Vision concept enjoyed the limelight.
