Aston Martin Takes Goodwood Festival 2018 By StormBack

Aston Martin are all set to take Goodwood Festival of Speed by storm in 2018 with no less than eight of its cars confirmed to take on the famous hill climb.

During the festival, held between the 12th and 15th July, Aston Martin will public debut no less than three of its new models, to include the new Vantage and the entire DB11 family.

The festival has been held every year since 1993 at the famous home of the Duke of Richmond at Goodwood Park and 2018 will celebrate the event’s 25th anniversary. Over the years, the festival has firmly established itself as the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture.

As part of the silver jubilee celebrations, Aston Martin’s new flagship Super GT, the DBS Superleggera, will be making its first public appearance at the festival. Not only will it be on static display in the Supercar paddock for visitors to admire, it will also be driving up the 1.16-mile hillclimb.

Also making its dynamic debut from the First Glance paddock will be the Rapide AMR. The 205mph four-door is the latest car in the exciting new AMR stable that draws direct engineering and aesthetic links to Aston Martin’s successful race team – Aston Martin Racing.

The stunning V12 Vantage V600 will also debut at this year’s event, a car that made its static debut at Le Mans but now the public will be able to see and hear this incredible limited-edition car in motion. Only 14 examples (seven coupes and seven roadsters) of the V600 will be made, so Goodwood provides a rare opportunity to see this special customer commission created by Q by Aston Martin.

All three members of the DB11 family will be in attendance at the Festival of Speed. The V8 and the Volante will be joined by the latest, range-topping DB11 AMR in the Supercar Paddock. Sitting alongside them will be the striking new Vantage with its 510PS, twin-turbo V8.

All of the current production car range will also be in action from Thursday to Sunday, and Aston Martin Racing will also be bringing its latest Vantage GTE to the Goodwood hill, fresh from the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans. Based in the Motorsport Paddock, the #95 will be piloted by the 2016 GTE Pro champion Nicki Thiim throughout the weekend.

Finally, the wildest model the company has ever produced, the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro, will be taking part in the timed runs up the hill, driven by Aston Martin Racing veteran Darren Turner.

While Aston Martin is more than well represented on track, visitors will also be able to get closer to the brand’s latest models at a dedicated stand with six models on hand – DBS Superleggera, Vantage, the DB11 family and Rapide S.
