2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed Annual Auction Nets $39 Million

2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Each year the Goodwood Festival of Speed celebrates all things automotive in festive style with a plethora of traditional events. One of those events is the annual Bonham’s auto auction, which netted an astronomical $39 million USD this year!

The photos are items from Bonham’s auction at the FOS this year. The offerings included a variety of automobile memorabilia from decades gone by. 

The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed has certainly one-upped many of the previous years. This year hundreds of supercars, classic cars, never before viewed newbies and more gathered together to illuminate an already bright event. Perhaps it was the heady mix of too much power and fuel that led buyers to shell out a bit more at Bonham’s auction this year? The overall proceeds were steeper than the epic Hill Climb event at Goodwood. read more

The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed Promises to Enthrall

2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed

It is that time of year again: The 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed shall commence on June 26th and run through Sunday the 29th. This is one of the few great gatherings of exotic sports cars during that lull between major automotive shows and this year promises to be just a touch more exquisite than last, which is a pattern we can all appreciate.

The Michelin Supercar Paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed is but a segment of what this well-rounded event has to offer–and that is saying something. There may be 2 of just 3 special edition Bugatti Veyron cars at the same dealership, but where else can spectators immerse themselves in the Koenigsegg One, LaFerrari, McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and exotics never seen in public before?  Aside from simply viewing these aggressive machines, there will be the fun of the traditional races, auctions and famous Hill Climb taking place over the course of the weekend. read more
