Ferrari is once again showcasing its incredible product range at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, from 12-15 July 2019. Star attractions from Ferrari include the new 488 Pista and 812 Superfast, both of which are making their UK dynamic debut at the event. The 488 Pista is Ferrari’s latest Special Series mid-engined V8 which is sure to become a future classic, just as have its predecessors, the 360 Challenge Stradale, the 430 Scuderia and the 458 Speciale. The 812 Superfast is also the latest a superlative line of front-engined V12 GT cars, with a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine delivering an incredible 800hp.
Also on display in the Michelin Supercar Paddock, and taking part in the Supercar Runs up the famed hillclimb twice each day, are the Ferrari Portofino and the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T – which share a version of the 3.9 litre twin-turbo V8 engine which has won the International Engine of the Year award for the last 3 years, and which also appears in the 488 Pista. The LaFerrari Aperta will also be returning to the event in 2018, after its debut at the company’s 70th Anniversary celebrations last year.
FerrariCorse Clienti division will once again be showcasing the incredible range of track-only XX cars, which are a regular crowd favourite and which demonstrate the company’s commitment to providing clients with the opportunity to become an integral part of the Prancing Horse’s development and testing programme for new technology. On display in the Michelin Supercar Paddock will be an FXX, a 599XX and a FXX K EVO.
A new feature from Ferrari for 2018 is a Ferrari Challenge Pit Stop Challenge which is located in the Race Car Paddock, alongside a Ferrari 488 GTE which was driven at the LeMans 24hr race in 2018. Car No 52 was driven by Toni Vilander, twice winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours, and Antonio Giovinazzi and Luis Felipe Derani. Members of the public will have the chance to simulate being part of a Ferrari Challenge pit crew, changing wheels and tyres in a timed environment that replicates race conditions.
