12 July 2013

The 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed was kicked off by the Moving Motor Show. The event gave visitors the chance to drive dozens of brand new cars on the 1.16-mile hillclimb and on a special course around Goodwood's estate.

The Moving Motor Show hosted more than 20 world or UK debuts, including the Audi RS6, Ford Fiesta ST, Lexus IS, Mercedes CLA, Rolls-Royce Wraith and Skoda Octavia VRS.

Other Festival of Speed attractions, which run throughout the weekend, include the FoS-Tech zone that showcases the latest technology, the Goodwood aviation exhibition, concours d’elegance and F1 and motorcycle paddock.

The McLaren P1, Vencer Sarthe, Alfa Romeo 4C, Toyota GT86 Open concept, Range Rover Sport and Vühl 05 are also making their worldwide ‘dynamic’ debuts at the event.

Will be fastest up the hill in my opinion, on another note, the Ferrari F12 in silver looks wrong.

I would have thought that painting its bonnet yellow and attaching a caravan to it might have made the FF better looking, but bizarrely it is still one pug ugly car.  Why anyone would want to be seen driving something that looks like that is a mystery.

I think it's good looking. A 4 wheel drive, 4 seater Ferrari in the mould of the wild Lamborghini Espada. What's not to like? One of my lottery win cars. Well, that and 100 others.

While being completely outlandish, the Espada was a beautiful, stylish car.  Comparing the FF to the Espada is stretching things a bit.

I often wonder who designs modern Ferraris, they don't seem to be Italians from Pininfarina anymore, but Japanese designers who failed at Nissan and Toyota.  They just aren't as beautiful as Ferraris of the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s.
