It is essentially a contest with a winner each year judged by a panel of experts, but there is no question that every car on display is a showstopper. You will no doubt see more powerful cars at the Festival of Speed, but few will come close to the rarity, beauty and intrigue of the Style et Luxe entrants.
This is all about unique automotive design, perfectly preserved. Find it on the lawn outside Goodwood House.
The Cartier Lawn has been a key part of the Festival of Speed since 1995 - the third year in the event's history. In contrast to the speed and noise of the Hillclimb, the Style et Luxe area sets itself apart by being a static display, with the silent engines emphasising poise.
Each year, a different selection of expert judges choose the winner, but rather than being solely composed of figures from the automotive industry the panel draws from other arenas.
Architect Nicholas Grimshaw, singer Bryan Ferry, academic Dr Penny Sparke and designer Sir Terence Conran are just some of the people who have been tasked with defining style and luxury at the Festival of Speed over the years.
