Rolls-Royce Showcases Complete Portfolio at Goodwood

By Paul Joseph

Rolls-Royce have been a regular presence at the Goodwood Festival of Speed for many years and for this year’s edition, which came to a close on the weekend, they were once again at the heart of the action.

The iconic British marquee used the prestigious occasion to showcase their remarkable portfolio of bespoke motor cars in full for the first time in its history, making it one of the highlights of Goodwood.

As well as the model on show, there was also a curated photography exhibition commemorating Rolls-Royce models down the years.

But there’s no question that all eyes were on the real life models, which included the Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV, plus rare expressions of the Rolls-Royce Dawn, Wraith, Ghost and its flagship, Phantom.

For the Cullinan, one of the most anticipated car launches of 2018, it represented its first public appearance.

Meanwhile representing the brand’s pinnacle motor car was a highly Bespoke Phantom, dubbed the ‘Gentleman’s Tourer’.

With attendances of up to 150,000, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of Europe’s most famous and popular car events. The focal point of the occasion is an annual hill climb featuring historic motor racing vehicles.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018 took place from 12-15 July.
