Goodwood FoS 2016

These were the fastest cars at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed

The fastest five to tackle the hill at this year's festival

  • The Goodwood Festival of Speed has just rolled past and bought with it, well, speed. After all, this year's theme was indeed 'Full Throttle', and as such, we had lots of racing. And some rain. 

    This year's hillclimb featured a wide variety of cars from Can-Am to NASCAR, and pre-war relics to future concepts. 

    Legends such as Jenson Button, Sir Stirling Moss and Mad Mike, insane engine noise and plenty of crashes made this year one of the best. 

    The main question, however, is who got up the hill in the shortest amount of time?

  • 5. Porsche 911 GT3 Cup - 51.34

  • 4. McLaren Chevrolet M8F - 51.01

    A car created for the 1971 Can-Am season by Bruce McLaren's racing team, it helped McLaren dominate the season with a top two finish in the championship.

    The latest crazy road going McLaren, harking back to the legendary F1 LM, that has more downforce and weighs less than the already crazy P1 GTR.

  • 1. Subaru Impreza ‘Gobstopper II’ – 46.29

    A beast of a 2008 Impreza STI, created for the UK time attack series, that kicks out 780 horsepower and with aero that puts Pikes Peak cars to shame.
