This 2001 Landrover Freelander car bonnet is a unique piece of art created for Bangers and Cash, the UK’s first art roadshow banger rally from Sheffield to Monte Carlo which took place on 21st – 25th September 2018 and was driven by the team from Advanced Metals Innovation Company.

In keeping with the theme of the car, the Crocodile Dundee dressed team captain Steve was spotted on day two wresting a crocodile (inflatable) in a lake to earn precious rally points. Fortunately we managed to get some snaps of the action!  

Jenny Leonard is a community commission artist always pursuing collaborative art projects that bring people together. She currently delivers creative art workshops for schools and businesses. She is based in London but will travel far and wide for the right project and big blank walls! Jenny specialises in murals, live art events and site specific public art for the community. Her work has been commissioned by British Airways, Transport for London and Westminster City Council. She currently exhibits painted sculptures on public art trails with Wild in Art and has painted just over 40 sculptures to date. Her work has raised over £100,00 for partnering charities.

Jenny wanted to make a bonnet that was characterful, vibrant and would bring the car to life. This bright green CrocoCar will be staring you straight in the eye when viewed in the rear view mirror, always on your tail and smiling at the finish line.

All our bonnets are in great condition, but some may bear minor stone chips and imperfections in the paintwork from the journey, but this highlights the authenticity of the piece and adds to the story and character of the bonnet.
