The Goodwood Festival of Speed is like taking the auto show and making every (or almost) vehicle prove its worth by actually running on the famous course, so it’s arguably a lot more exciting.
Since we’re dealing with something called the Festival of Speed, we also get an abundance of supercars and hypercars on the premises – and the official YouTube page of the establishment knows how to deliver. The FoS is becoming more interesting with each passing year as more people – both visitors and manufacturers – get more involved, debuting major vehicles here. For example Porsche delivered two great vehicles – the 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series and the flagship 911 GT2 RS. People get a chance to see them in action – sometimes with funny results, because you can scour the internet to see this year’s mishaps (one involving a NASCAR model and a right turn!).
Other major debuts included Jaguar with the XE SV Project 8 – their most powerful production vehicle ever – and the tuned XJR, or Maserati with the facelifted GranTurismo Convertible / GranCabrio and Aston Martin with the hardcore track-only Vulcan AMR Pro. Virtually everyone was there at the event – from Bugatti’s Chiron to the electric Rimac Concept_S or the current Nurburgring record holder, the McLaren P1 LM.
