Ferrari At The Goodwood Festival Of Speed [GALLERY]

Ferrari showed two UK debuts at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the all-new Ferrari 458 Spider, new lighter and more powerful Ferrari California 30. Also on display was the V12-powered four-wheel drive Ferrari FF. All three cars also participated in the 1.16 mile hillclimb route.

Also on the track was the 2009 F60 single-seater driven by Scuderia Ferrari driver Marc Gené.

Marc commented, “The track is extremely narrow, so it feels quite fast even though we are only doing 250 kph [156 mph]. We have brought the car here because it won in 2009 and we like to bring F1 to the fans here in England. The Festival of Speed is one of the biggest – if not the biggest – events in the world.”

For classic Ferrari fans there was a lot to see as well from Nick Mason’s very rare 1953 250 MM Carrera Panamerica. Nick also brought his classic 250 GTO, a regular at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival, which he has owned for over 40 years.

The ‘Michelin Supercar Run’ was led up the hill by Chris Evans’ ‘Magnificent Seven’, which comprises seven of the most important, iconic and beautiful Ferraris ever made: 250 SWB, 275 GTB4, 365 GTB4, 288 GTO, F40, 550 Barchetta and SA Aperta.
