Ferrari fans at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will be delighted to see and hear some glorious cars of the past and admire four current masterpieces from Modena and Maranello.
The latest 12-cylinder car from the Maranello stable, the four-seater Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, will be demonstrated in the Supercar run up Goodwood Hill. This 540 bhp example of Italian craftsmanship and engineering excellence will be seen in Rosso Corsa and will be driven up the hill on all three days.
The all-aluminium 612 Scaglietti with its outstandingly luxurious cabin can accommodate four adults in complete comfort. Powered by Ferrari’s most advanced V-12 engine, it has a top speed of 199 mph and for the first time on a Ferrari, computerised electronic stability and traction control (CST).
A Ferrari 575M Maranello with Fiorano Handling pack will be on display on the Classic Cars magazine stand in the Exhibitors Area opposite Goodwood House. This car introduced the company’s legendary F1 semi-automatic gearbox to the road-going Ferrari V-12 engine. Elegant Pininfarina styling and a 515 bhp engine combine to allow the car to achieve a 202 mph maximum speed. The car will appear at Goodwood in Grigio Titanio with Cuoio Naturale interior.
The Ferrari Formula 1 Team will be represented by F1 test driver Luca Badoer, who will be driving a world championship winning car up Goodwood Hill. Fresh from their Grand Prix win at Indianapolis on Sunday 20 June 2004, the eighth this year and 175th in F1 racing, the Scuderia Ferrari is always a popular attraction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
