Video / Comments

The unique video was shot in one continuous take.

After last year's show was canceled due to the pandemic, the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed is now underway. For the first time, visitors at the event will get to see the new Lotus Emira sports car, 2022 BMW 2 Series, and Toyota GR 86 in action being put through their paces on the world-famous Hillclimb.

Also making its dynamic event is the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake. To mark the occasion, Genesis has released a new video showing off the G70 Shooting Brake at Goodwood, and it looks glorious on the move. But there's a unique twist.

To make the video more immersive, the entire video was filmed by a drone in one continuous shot with no cuts, providing a unique perspective of the Goodwood Hillclimb. The video starts with an aerial view of the grand Goodwood Estate, before entering the mansion and flying past the Duke of Richmond.

The drone then follows the G70 Shooting Brake as it races around the 1.16-mile track. Behind the wheel of the luxury wagon was British F2 rally champion Gethin Jones. You might expect the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake to be longer than its sedan sibling, but you would be wrong.

At 184.4 inches long, 72.8 inches wide, and 55.1 inches tall with a 111.6-inch wheelbase, the dimensions are identical to the regular G70. Despite this, the G70 Shooting Brake has 40 percent more cargo space than the sedan. Under the hood, the G70 Shooting Brake can be powered by either a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque or a 2.2-liter diesel producing 199 hp and 324 lb-ft.

As with most niche wagons, the Genesis G70 Wagon is designed for the European market and won't be available in the US. American buyers can still buy the GV70, however, which adopts a more popular crossover bodystyle.
