This Supercar Paddock Has Nearly 8,000-Horsepower To Drool Over

Goodwood Festival of Speed

There's only place to see this mayhem.

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed is about to get underway and for anyone attending it can be a bit intimidating at first. There are simply too many cars to see in one day, so it’s best to make this a multi-day trip, if possible. For those who do it’ll be well worth it. The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the largest outdoor annual car show and it attracts thousands of people as well as the world’s most incredible cars. Needless to say, automakers and suppliers take full advantage of the festivities. Michelin is one of them. The Michelin Supercar Paddock is back for this year’s event and it’s better than ever. How does over 8,000 combined horsepower sound to you? Yeah, we thought so.

Not only are the supercars themselves pretty amazing, but so is the paddock’s new location: next to the start line. Along with the supercars, pictured and detailed below, Michelin’s Supercar Paddock and Main Stand will also play host to several supercar debuts and celebrity guest appearances. All in all, it'll be one big supercar celebration.

So, what’s in store? The first is the Prato Orage, a French supercar with over 900 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque. It can blast to 60 mph from a dead stop in less than three seconds. Upon its launch, it featured the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine ever used in a production car. There’s also the Porsche 935, the track-only car inspired by the legendary 1970s era race car revealed earlier this year. Total horsepower is rated at 690 thanks to its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six. Does this sound somewhat familiar? Well, it should, because it shares its chassis underpinnings with the latest 911 GT2 RS.

Remember the fully-electric Mustang we recently covered? Well that car, the Charge Mustang, and its 536 glorious horsepower will also be on display. W Motors’s Fenyr Motorsport, the 790 hp, 250 mph beast from the Middle East can be seen in the flesh as well.

Other display cars will be a 500 hp Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer Vehicle Design, the wonderfully bonkers 769 hp Apollo Intensa Emozione, 360 hp Lotus Evora GT4, 1,360 hp Koenigsegg Agera RSN, 600 hp Ginetta Akula, and the 1,800 hp Dendrobium D-1.

It’s going to be one hell of a great weekend at the Goodwood Estate.
