The Elemental team are looking forward to giving the Rp1 its first official outing on the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb. The completion of the 500bhp/tonne Rp1 is a landmark moment for the British manufacturer who has been designing and developing the lightweight sports car over a four-year period with the intention of creating one of the most advanced cars of its kind. As well as the car driving up the hill, Elemental will have its second production car on display at its stand (Stand 12) located within the exhibition area.

Bentley will hand UK debuts to three exciting new models at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed in June. The luxuriously powerful Continental GT Speed, Bentayga SUV and Flying Spur V8 S will all be presented to UK customers for the first time at the famous event. The GT Speed was unveiled in early 2016 with the handcrafted Bentley raising the benchmark for bespoke interior quality and unparalleled performance and power. The new Continental GT Speed is the fastest-ever Bentley produced, reaching speeds of 206mph.

Lining up alongside the GT Speed is Bentley’s first ever production SUV, the Bentayga. Built in Britain, the Bentayga interior and all-new Bentley W12 petrol engine bring traditional Bentley comfort and performance to the luxury SUV class. Completing the trio of UK debuts at Festival of Speed is the Flying Spur V8 S. The most refined V8 performance sedan in the world showcases Bentley’s trademark comfort and dynamics, delivering effortless driving with enhanced engine performance and intuitive in-car technology. Bentley will showcase several legendary models on Goodwood’s famous hill climb, with the iconic Team Blower Le Mans 24 hours car from 1929 sure to thrill the crowds.
