Goodwood Revival 2018

The Goodwood Revival brings together all that is great and good about vintage motoring. Historic scenes are brought to life in the modern day with guests enjoying the atmosphere. This unique event attracts star cars from all over the world, together reliving their glory days on track. Here’s our top 10 cars from the Goodwood Revival.


All of the Ford GT40s

The Ford GT40 is a legendary machine with a storied past. Designed to vanquish Ferrari at Le Mans, it evolved through four generations over the years to become the icon we know today. The GT40 won Le Mans four years in a row between 1966 and 1969.

The Ford GT40 gets its name from being just 40-inches tall.


Alfa Romeo 3000 ‘Disco Volante’

One of the sweetest sounding cars in the paddock, this Alfa Romeo 3000 is nicknamed ‘Disco Volante’ due to its aerodynamic profile. What does disco volante mean? It’s Italian for flying saucer.

A very pretty car and one that acquitted itself well in the Freddie March Memorial Trophy.


Air-cooled Porsche 911 Safety Cars

The Safety Car plays an important role in any discipline of motorsport, but these air-cooled 911s looked the part at the Revival. Pristine in every respect, they rounded up the racers when necessary with their glorious flat-six engines.


Lotus-Climax 25

The Lotus-Climax 25 was revolutionary in its day as the first fully stressed monocoque to appear in Formula One. Jim Clark used this brainchild of Colin Chapman to win the 1963 world championship.

At the Goodwood Revival the car was in fine form and still proved to be impressively quick.


Lister Knobbly

It’s always a joy to see an old Lister prowling the track, even more so if it’s a Knobbly. The Jaguar D-Type powered racer sounds thunderous and looks great wearing the bodywork that gives it its name.


Rolls-Royce Phantom II Ice Cream Van

Leaving the excitement of the track and wondering around the Revival always reveals some wonderful oddities. One such example is this coachbuilt Rolls-Royce Phantom II ice cream van. While many were grateful of its presence on such a hot day, it’s a fascinating thing to look at and typical of the bespoke vehicles that Goodwood Revival attracts.


Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan

This one-off Ferrari was responsible for one of the closest races at Revival 2018. Competing in the Kinrara Trophy, the breadvan battled for the lead with a strong Jaguar E-Type. Ultimately the Ferrari claimed victory, but not before the pair raced inches apart as the sun set.

The Breadvan gets its name from its enhanced aerodynamic bodywork that extends to a blunt rear end.


Shelby Daytona Coupe

Before Shelby set to work on the Ford GT40, the Daytona Coupe was to be the car to dethrone Ferrari in the world of sports cars. It might be based on the AC Cobra, but the team worked hard to make this car as sleek as possible to gain a higher top speed down the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans — something that ultimately created the distinctive shape you see before you.

Just six Daytonas were ever built.


Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza

Alfa Romeo 8C fever continues after a 1937 model won the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours. This wonderful 8C Monza is named after its historic victory in the 1931 Italian GP and is actually a shortened version of the Spider model.

This example sports a period correct white and red livery that gives it a distinctive look.


Ferrari 330 GTO

One of only three ever made and one of only two to officially leave the factory as a 330, this is a very special GTO. Given away by the power bulge in its bonnet, the 330 GTO hosts a larger 4.0-litre engine.

The 330 GTO is one of the rarest and most valuable Ferraris ever made.
