Aston Martin taking exciting supercar fleet to Festival of Speed

Updated: 


Iconic luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin is set to grace the Goodwood Festival of Speed with an exciting fleet of cars.

Perhaps the most intriguing vehicle heading to the event on England's south coast is the new DB11 supercar, which will be making its public debut. The strikingly styled DB9 replacement features a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that makes 600bhp.

The DB11 is far from the most extreme Aston Martin heading to Goodwood, though, as the track-only Vulcan will also make the trip up the famous hill climb. Powered by a 7.0-litre V12 engine, the monstrous racer makes 820bhp, and is making its second trip to Lord March's estate after being unveiled at the show last year.

Aston Martin racing driver Darren Turner revealed that he is "looking forward to going back up the hill in the Aston Martin Vulcan and this time really being able to push."

Turner will also be piloting the new Vantage GT8 in the Supercar Shootout, which pits some of the world's most exclusive performance cars against each other in timed runs up the hill. The GT8 is a race-inspired Vantage model, featuring lightweight carbon fibre bodywork, functional aerodynamics and a track-focused chassis.

The final car in Aston Martin's Goodwood lineup is the V12 Vantage S, a car more familiar to enthusiasts as it has been on the market for a few years now.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place near Chichester, West Sussex, from 23 June to 26 June.
