The Goodwood Festival of Speed
The Goodwood Festival of Speed
Since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has served as the meeting place for the planet’s rarest and most glamorous cars from the past and present as they take on a 1.16-mile course across the March Estate in West Sussex, England. Known as the Goodwood Hillclimb, it commemorates a similar event hosted by the ninth Duke of Richmond in 1936 for the Lancia Car Club. Today, it’s the largest motoring ‘garden party’ in the world.

At last year’s festival, visitors to the Bentley stand were able to observe demonstrations of leather stitching and veneer marquetry by real Bentley craftsmen, visit a Mulliner showcase and configure a car, and view ‘The World’s Most Extraordinary Car Photograph’, which utilizes NASA technology to display the intricate level of detail in a Bentley automobile using 53 billion pixels.

Several Bentley models made an appearance at the event, including:
  • The latest Flying Spur V8 S
  • A new Continental GT Speed Black Edition
  • The Bentley Mulsanne
  • A pre-owned Bentley GT V8
  • The brand-new Bentley Bentayga
  • The Bentley Blower, a popular racer from the first half of the 20th century
