BYD and Yangwang will be making their Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard debut this year, as part of First Glance presented by heycar with the new Yangwang U8.


It's a utilitarian SUV that we have had here at Goodwood briefly for Media Drive Day and now it’ll be in the First Glance batch at the Festival of Speed.

BYD will of course be out in force with the commendable Seal saloon car, as well as the all-new Seal U DM-i, a plug-in hybrid family SUV. It’ll also be joining the Denza D9 premium MPV, which is BYD's answer to the Lexus LM luxury van, a vehicle that’s sold almost 20,000 units in its native China.
