The Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
Jaguar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011
The 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed will see Jaguar take centre stage with a dramatic sculpture being commissioned for the lawn in front of Goodwood House. Enthusiasts will be able to view an array of Jaguars from the past, present and a little way into the future with the XK120, and examples of the C-, D- and, of course, E-type taking part in demonstration runs in front of the crowds.
Present at the Festival (1-3 July) the new XKR-S will take on the notorious Goodwood Hill.
The fastest Jaguar in a generation, the XKR-S is capable of accelerating from rest to 100 mph in just 8.7-seconds before reaching a top speed of 186 mph. With substantially revised suspension architecture, new springs and dampers as well as revisions to the electronic systems controlling the Dynamic Stability Control and Active Differential, the XKR-S has the composure and traction to harness the extra power. Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, will be at the wheel to demonstrate the abilities of the car.
The Festival will start on Thursday 30 June with the Moving Motor Show – a chance for visitors to experience the latest Jaguar road cars and even get behind the wheel and take on the Goodwood Hill. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets please click here.
