I attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend & thought I’d share a few pictures:
So what cars did I find interesting?
Formula 1 cars for the sheer engineering.
The Bentley Le Mans car for it’s brute power.
The 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 – with snow plough front end, the only car to be designed with a ruler.
1963 Mercedes 300SL (gullwing) – possibly my favourite car of all time
Pagani Zonda R
Some of the bikes were pretty special too….
Carl Fogarty Petronas bike
Valentino Rossi’s Ducati
I had to take a picture of the Ford Cortina, it was in showroom condition.
As was the fully restored 1967 Mk2 Jaguar S type – with offers being invited over £65,000!
I much preferred the old, restored Ford Mustang to it’s newer version.
While Bike exhaust manufacturer Akropovic showed off their creation, the Morsus a perfect fit between form and function – though that seat would give you splinters!
It’s not just a concept – the bike is being produced:
Don’t know if I’d have that over a Ducati 199 Panigale
So there you have it, my round up of the best of the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012
