The Knotted Lotus Car Sculpture at Goodwood Festival of Speed

We never thought we'd think something that basically looks like a sophisticated artsy pretzel could be so cool, but this Lotus sculpture is pretty neat. The hollow, 60-ton structure was designed by Gerry Judah as a tribute to Lotus founder Colin Chapman. Chapman injected the monocoque chassis into auto racing. Similarly, this piece has no internal frame and is completely self-supporting.
