Skoda Citigo

Skoda carmaker had a very good idea by installing a special replica of the iconic Stonehenge, Wiltshire, made completely from recycled car parts. This will actually be one of the main attractions of city this year. The work-of-art was unveiled especially for the evening of the Summer Solstice. This all arrangement was actually part of the launching the Skoda Citigo model process.

Thanks to this event, the model is now also known as the Citihenge. The curious ones had the opportunity to see it on the Southbank between the 19th and the 20th of June. The artist is Tommy Gun and the creation process took three months. He needed 18 scrap cars and it is over 5 meters tall. In the end the whole thing weights 36 tons and each henge is 5 meters wide. The artist is a very famous one known for its projects involving gig sculptures made of machine parts exhibited at the Grand Designs Show, Olympia, at Chelsea Flower Show and it seems that now he was asked to create a sculpture for the Tour of France. The event was actually collaboration between the artist and musicians like Anastacia and DJ Tiesto.

The model will wait for a couple of days before starting its tour around the UK. It will participate at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and will be celebrated starting the 28th of June till the 1st of July in Sussex. The carmaker thinks that the new Skoda Citigo is the smartest option for city drivers as it is designed to do a good job in the urban environment. This model is actually a symbol of the beginning of a new era of motoring and they specialists hope buyers will appreciate their hard work. The Citigo has incredible interior space despite the fact that it has small exterior dimensions. Four adults can enjoy the exceptional comfort and safety the model is capable of.
