Goodwood Festival of Speed: Preview

June 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

We all know the Goodwood Festival of Speed‘s about the world’s finest supercars and classics, motorsport legends (human and metal) and luxury vehicles – but it’s also a showcase for new and next-generation technology, interesting concepts and forthcoming consumer-oriented developments. Final listings of the cars on show haven’t yet been released, but it looks as if there’ll be plenty to see in the FOS-Tech pavillion, as well as in the Moving Motor Show, manufacturer displays and of course, going up the hill. Here’s a brief rundown of what’s been announced so far:

  • Honda CR-Z Mugen (see below): the supercharged hot hybrid.
  • Citroen Survolt, the all-electric GT racer-style concept first seen last year.
  • Peugeot EX-1, the all-electric, streamlined speed record-breaker.
  • Chevrolet Miray, a cute hybrid open speedster concept with mid-mounted engine, first seen at the Seoul Motor Show earlier this year.
  • Infiniti Etherea, a hybrid small family-sized posh-hatch concept first seen at the Geneva Motor Show.
  • Seat IBE, the all-electric coupe concept.
  • Rolls-Royce Phantom 102EX, the experimental electric monster.
  • Renault Captur, a 99g/km diesel sports coupe/crossover concept.
  • The Gordon Murray super-efficient T.25 and all-electric T.27 city cars.
  • GM’s EN-V city transportation concept(s) as seen at the Shanghai World Expo.
  • Jaguar C-X75 (pictured), to go into production as a petrol-electric hybrid.
