A number of cars from the British automaker that will not run at Goodwood will be on display. The CC100 will make a rare public appearance. The open-air concept car is sure to turn plenty of heads with its modern take on a classic race car.
Aston Martin Lagonda Taraf
Also on display will be the Lagonda Taraf. The four door luxury machine will be making its first public appearance at Goodwood. If you want to buy one then you had better have connections. The Lagonda Taraf is only available for purchase by invitation only and the price is confidential (i.e. if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it).
Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer: “I’m very much looking forward to seeing the reaction to our 2015 Festival of Speed presence from the knowledgeable and enthusiastic Goodwood crowds.”
“I believe we’ve put together a hugely compelling line-up including some surprises that should keep fans of our brand, and of luxury sports cars in general, entertained and engaged throughout the event.”
“Driving the Vantage GT12 up the famous hill climb at Goodwood will be a personal highlight for me.”
