In the Polish city of Pruszków you’ll find the Gallery of Steel Figures, an entire museum devoted to dozens of sculptures built from scrap metal salvaged from a local scrapyard. Their most recent addition is a collection of four iconic cars designed and built by roughly 50 artists over the last 5 years. The models include a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, a Bugatti Veyron, a Maserati GranTurismo, and a Lamborghini Aventador. The steel vehicles are built completely to scale and include functional doors and replica interiors. The Gallery of Steel Figures also has wide array of imposing Transformers and other pop culture figures from TV and film. You can see more car details on Carscoops.
