About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – Porsche won Le Mans for the first time in 1970 with the sleek 917k. The super lightweight wireframe chassis is celebrated in Ambrose’s detailed sculptural maze.

THE SCULPTURE – Jonny Ambrose’s digitally designed sculpture is a stylised polygonal design, 3d printed in one single 40cm long piece, an elongated 1/12th scale.

THE LOOK – The result is a lightweight, fragile looking sculpture. With detailed representative chassis, it creates a bold and playful 3d maze of interweaving lines to look into and wonder at.

About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – The legendary Porsche 935 was nicknamed the ‘Wlale Tail’ & also ‘Moby Dick’ for its extra long sweeping rear end. The 935, in it’s many guises, won every one in every 3 races it entered.

THE SCULPTURE – This sculpture accentuates the sleek form and swept tail section, using multiple vertical planes in flame polished acrylic. Carbon fibre, anodised wheel rims and 3d printed elements all feature in this artwork. The race-car flared wheel arches also feature on this dramatic looking sculpture.

THE LOOK – The distinctive, deep recessed red ‘BBS’ ‘turbo fan’ rims are portrayed by CNC lathed aluminium, anodised with colour. Purchasers can choose their own bespoke custom specification, and even select a ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ version, where each side looks different (by choosing different wheel options per side).

About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – The legendary BMW 3.0 CSL was nicknamed the ‘Batmobile’ for its huge race-car wings, fins and spoiler, winning six European Touring Car Championships throughout the 1970s. The ‘L’ in CSL stood for leicht (light), the car reducing it’s weight for racing, using aluminium body panels and Perspex for the windows.

THE SCULPTURE – This sculpture utilises those very same materials, along with carbon fibre, elegant hardwood, and 3d printed elements. Multiple vertical planes describe the iconic car form, with key details held between them. The race-car flared wheel arches also feature on this dramatic looking sculpture.

THE LOOK – The distinctive, deep recessed gold ‘BBS’ lattice rims are portrayed by CNC lathed aluminium with oak centres. Purchasers can choose their own bespoke custom specification, and even select a ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ version, where each side looks different (by choosing different wheel options per side).
