2019 McLaren SENNA GTR - Best of Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 July 27, 2018, 12 pm The McLaren Senna is already such an insanely aggressive and unique new hypercar. Its looks instantly make the entire Lambo and Ferrari lineups seem hopelessly dated. The raw energy from these sliced and diced panels hardly needed a racing upfit. But here we are. This Senna GTR is absolutely shocking in its design brutality. The functional nature of the aero additions are makes them even more interesting and beautiful to the eye.

It seems like every supercar that matters is at Lord March's estate - along with thousands of adoring fans. The clear stars of the show are the glorious Ford GT and the Bugatti Chiron. And of course the Lamborghini Centenario and the Aston Martin Vulcan. Don't forget the new Pagani Huayra BC. And clearly the McLaren 720S and world-premiere 570S cabrio are worth seeing in action.

They're all represented here!… 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed - Walkaround Highlights Gallery in 130 Photos July 8, 2017, 6 pm CRD pal and all-around bon vivante James Crabtree is back from an amazing visit to the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed! All four days meant JC snapped nearly 1000 photos and 100 videos from the epic motoring event. And best news of all? He was gracious enough to share them here with us. We selected about 130 of our favorites from his extensive Goodwood experience. Everything from Lego racers and racecars, to four-seat Morgans, EuroFighter Typhoons, vintage icons and future concepts. And of course, not two steps without tripping over some high-dollar supercar. The 570S Spider, Aventador S… Design Analysis - 2018 BMW M8 Concept GranCoupe - Goodwood FoS 2018 July 25, 2018, 4 pm BMW needs some new halo vehicles at the top of its lineup. Both to compete with the rockstar AMG GT as well as subdue all the M-car loyalists who despise the i8. The new 8 series serves that purpose nicely. And before it has even arrived -- we have a new variant with totally unique styling and details. Oh, and two extra doors. The M8 GranCoupe concept tries to keep the Mustang-like raciness of the 850's roofline while squeezing in two seats back there. Headroom!? Who cares! How is this different than the current M6 GC, you ask? Scale.… 2018 Nissan GTR50 Concept By ItalDesign - Goodwood FoS 2018 Debut July 27, 2018, 2 pm Very interesting collaboration here where ItalDesign was tasked with a re-skin a Nissan GT-R fully, inside and out, as a celebration of the car's 50-year legacy. More than a reskin, even. Re-imagining? Reboot? Yes. Possible hints at next-gen model expected for the 2020 model year? Yes of course. But mostly this exercise just celebrates the GT-R's essence and moves the vehicle noticeably upmarket. Even as a $100k car the GT-R does lack the class and panache of true supercars, in some respects, with the current model's workmanlike exterior and interior. How to go high-fashion without dulling the GT-R's ace… Watch the 2016 Bentley Continental GT SPEED Prove Its 206MPH Top Speed November 8, 2015, 9 pm Worth seeing to watch one of the quickest supercars in the world hit top speed in just over a minute. 2016 Bentley Continental GT SPEED BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT SPEED: VMAX IN THE OUTBACK Continental GT Speed hits 206 mph (331 km/h) top speed on Stuart Highway, Australia Northern Territory route one of only three derestricted roads in the world Australian racing legend, John Bowe, takes Grand Tourer on extraordinary high-speed run Continental GT Speed combines supercar performance with supreme luxury (Crewe, 04 November 2015) The 16MY Bentley Continental GT Speed has been taken to its top speed of 206… 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT63S - First Look - 2018 Goodwood FoS July 24, 2018, 4 pm Talk about a tough car to judge from the renderings! The new AMG GT 4-door is quite polarizing from all sides. Is it a super-CLS or a proper supercar with four doors? This top 63 S model is certainly the top of the ranks. Its giant chrome grille bars are flagship Mercedes of the future, while its giant bright tailpipes and huge upright rear wing are quite the statement pieces. Say what you will about its globby surfacing.... this machine looks like an escaped DTM car in motion at Goodwood. Here's a photo flyaround courtesy of James Crabtree --… 2018 Lexus LS500 Debuts All-New Flagship with 4.5s Turbo 10-Speed and Standard LWB January 9, 2017, 9 am The new Lexus LS just debuted in Detroit with some shocking advancements in style, luxury and performance. First things first: the powertrain of the creamy cruiser is now a 3.5-liter twin-turb oV6 making 415 horsepower. Through the standard 10-speed automatic, the new LS promises a brisk flash t o60-mph in just 4.5-seconds. The machine is longer than before: its 123-inch wheelbase is up 1.3-inches versus even the LWB LS460L/LS600hL from the existing generation. A lower rear roofline but much more enveloping rear seating keeps legroom limo-huge. The design itself is also a big leap into the future. With a… Best of NYIAS - 2018 Lincoln NAVIGATOR - 450HP, 10-Speed April 12, 2017, 1 pm There have been three or four times in my lifetime when Lincoln Motor Company seemed like it was really on to something. It had a lot to prove: we only knew it as the Town Car company. Certainly not a credible luxury contender. The Jag-look Continental of the late 1990s had us doing double takes, even if it was a total boat and deeply FWD from behind the wheel. Or when the first Nav arrived. Then when the LS sedans came out. A luxed-up, 4-door Mustang for Lincoln sounded great! But these moments for Lincoln were one-offs. Flukes, almost,… 217mph LUCID Alpha Speed Car + 2018 LUCID Air at Pebble Beach August 23, 2017, 5 pm One of The most promising Tesla-killer of the next year is Lucid Motors. This beauty is packing up to 1000 horsepower and in its top trim, and a base price of $55k at the bottom. It is a dead-on hit at the Tesla Model S, but upgraded to sci-fi limo spec. Fittingly, Lucid brought out their production prototype as well as this road rocket: the Alpha Speed Car. Wearing wrapped and de-mirrored bodywork and a giant clear plexiglass wing in back, the Lucid Alpha Speed was officially clocked at 217MPH. This is one fast forward to the future! The…
