After parts one and two of our 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed gallery bonanza, comes this final one.
It sometimes seems hard to believe that car manufacturers have for a number of years expressed no real interest in a real British motor show, yet are willing to have huge stands like the ones seen at Goodwood. With the Moving Motor Show especially, the Festival of Speed is now the UK’s de facto motoring extravaganza. These pics are what we found when wandering amongst those giant stands:
Audi TT Cup racer basks in the morning sun
An ESM favourite – the cheeky Audi S1
Audi represented virtually every car in the range, including the S8
RS 7 also made an appearance
Audi RS 3 seen on blog in rare unprompted content
R8 V10 Plus in the metal. Nardo Grey looks great.
With orange bits you could almost think this was made especially for ESM.
Ford stand even included a slide!
350bhp Ford Focus RS
Gorgeous C2 Corvette
C7 Corvette Stingray, after being cleaned by a man with a feather duster. Really.
Mean looking C7 Corvette Z06
Brand-new, but not RHD, Chevrolet Camaro
Ex-Schumacher Benetton was company at breakfast table
A very orange BMW M6
Looking smart in white, the Mercedes-AMG GT
Another AMG, the CLS 63 Shooting Brake
Maybach isn’t dead, it’s now just a bigger S-Class
Ken Block’s mental HOONICORN Mustang
Toyota FT-1 Concept was sat next to…
… tidy Toyota Supra predecessor
1 of 3 McLaren F1 GT Longtails
New 675LT without an actual longer tail
The McLaren 570S; lowest in the McLaren Sports Series ladder
Alain Prost inspired McLaren P1
The infamous ‘haunted’ ex-Senna Toleman-Hart TG184
Another legendary machine; the Lotus Carlton
Porsche 911 RSR greeted us to Goodwood
The Lava Orange Porsche 911 GT3 RS with bonus Toby Moody content
Sold-out Porsche Cayman GT4
Also now sold-out, the Porsche 918 Spyder
All-new Mazda MX-5
Original launch mk1 Mazda MX-5
Hmm. Not a great year for the Nissan GT-R NISMO Le Mans racer
GT-R running gear under a Juke body = fast
All-dominant VW Polo R WRC was on show
Check out those arches!
No really, check them out!
Certainly not a Golf then?
ESM would like to think it has paid for this spoiler, based on the sponsorship
Golf R400 looks to be heading for production
Let’s hope fluorescent trim stays!
We pray the gorgeous XL Sport makes it production, too.
Another concept, the GTE Sport
That wraps up our Festival of Speed gallery content. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed fighting through crowds to get the shots!
