Stonehenge Replica Made From Scrap Cars Installed on London's Southbank [VIDEO]

Škoda has installed a unique replica of Wiltshire’s iconic Stonehenge called Citihenge on London’s Southbank to celebrate the launch of the Citigo city car. The Citihenge, led by sculptor Tommy Gun is made entirely from scrap cars and it took the design team three months to create.

18 scrap cars were used and the Citihenge is over five metres tall. Each henge is five metres wide and the whole structure weighs 36 tonnes.

The Citihenge was opened this morning and will remain at Potters Fields for two days before touring the UK, with a move to the Goodwood Festival of Speed and its celebration of car culture, in West Sussex from 28th June – 1st July.

Tommy Gun, sculptor says: “The Citihenge project has been the most amazing challenge. Stonehenge is a huge, iconic structure and the Citihenge replica is too. It is made entirely from old car parts, which taps into my own childhood growing up on a farm where I used to love building and creating things with pieces of discarded machinery.”

Škoda Citigo is now on sale with prices starting at £7,630. Available in three door and five door, the small city car is just 3,563mm long, with seating for four adults and 251 litres of boot behind, rising to 951 litres when the rear seats are folded down (959 litres on the five-door model).

A single 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with either 60PS or 75PS offers a fuel economy as high as 68.9mpg.
