This year Goodwood hosts several exclusive global and UK debuts at the Moving Motor Show presented by the AA in association with the Telegraph, on the Thursday of the Festival of Speed.
Not only will visitors to the show be the first to see many of these models in the flesh, but for those of you lucky enough to catch a ride up the hill, either as a passenger or behind the wheel, in many instances they’ll have beaten motoring journalists to experience the car on the move.
Want to know what a 500bhp Peugeot feels like when throttle is pushed to the metal? Then get in line for a seat up the hill in the new 308 R Hybrid. Sticking with French flights of fancy, Renault is bringing the Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy for its British unveiling.
Or, if you prefer your hot hatches a little more muscular, there’s the new Ford Focus RS, making its global dynamic debut – and in the hands of no less a driver than Gymkhana legend Ken Block!
The latest SEAT Ibiza makes its UK debut, while Mazda will give a first view in public on British shores to the all-new MX-5 and CX-3 on Goodwood’s iconic 1.16-mile Hillclimb.
Lexus gives its new high-performance GS F saloon a UK debut – in the hands of factory Toyota Le Mans driver Mike Conway – while the latest Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will also be seen in this country for the first time and MINI’s all-new hardcore John Cooper Works will also make its maiden appearance.
Oh and did we mention the European Dynamic debut of the Aston Martin Vantage GT12?
