Road - Dream machine

Subtle it ain't!
For us folks up here, Goodwood is awfy far away. On the south coast of Englandshire it is within sniffing distance of the garlic munchers, but it should be on every auto nut’s bucket list, at least once.

Next month is a case in point. Over the weekend of 11-14 July, over 185,000 spectators are expected to attend the annual 'Festival of Speed and Moving Motor Show'.

There will be many must-see attractions including a visit to the Cartier Lawn, where the Cartier ‘Style et Luxe’ concours d’elegance will be staged.

Around 50 unique and spectacular cars will be on show including the magnificent Phantom Corsair. Designed by Rust Heinz, of the famous Heinz beans family, and built in 1938, this six seater coupe was powered by a 190 bhp Lycoming V8 driving the front wheels. 

It seats up to four people on the front bench, but only two in the back – because there are also two drinks cabinets on either side of the rear seat!
