The top 10 cars at Goodwood

HIDE CAPTION

The Goodwood Festival of Speed, whose 2014 edition wrapped on 29 June, is perhaps the UK’s most expensive garden party.

Held on the gracious estate of Lord March in West Sussex, the event is a celebration of rarified motoring, where owners of multimillion-dollar cars bury their privileged feet deep in brake and throttle.

But this is not some impenetrable bastion of petrol worship. The gates are flung open wide to any and all comers – provided they arrive with valid entry tickets in hand.

Here is just a smattering of the priceless machinery that ran roughshod over Goodwood Hill (or that just preened for the cameras) from 27-29 June.
