WELCOME TO THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL GARAGE: THE MICHELIN SUPERCAR PADDOCK AT GOODWOOD FOS 2019
Michelin Supercar Paddock returns to Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019 - Porsche 911
At Goodwood this year, Michelin has its very own Supercar Paddock garage all to itself. Dedicated to the crème de la crème of the supercar world, it’s the utterly outrageous Prato Orage that holds the key to the spot this year. The stylish 900bhp, limited-production French supercar produces over 1,000 Nm of torque and surges from 0-60mph in under 3 seconds. When first launched, it was the most powerful naturally-aspirated V8 engine ever installed on a production car. Keep a lookout too for its driver, Oli Webb, who will be on the Supercar Paddock stage throughout the four-day event!
Making its dynamic debut at the Festival of Speed, this very special track-only car is inspired by the iconic 1970s racer. Revealed earlier this year, only 77 models of this eye-catching powerhouse will be built, each packing the same 690bhp, 3.8-litre twin-turbo flat-six and chassis underpinnings of the latest 911 GT2 RS. Porsche have achieved the seemingly unachievable by reviving the ultimate legend. With all of its history to cater for, it’s duty-bound to be a treat for the ears too!
Mustang purists may be squirming in their seats at the mere thought of a fully-electric version of their favourite classic, but this 150mph, four-wheel drive torque-demon brings the classic car into the future. Charge Cars have revived a Mustang that guarantees the future of this iconic car that is needed in today’s fast-moving automotive world. The supercar is a 400kW power-pack produces a gargantuan 7400Nm of torque, propelling it from 0-60mph in under 4 seconds – almost half that of the original car.
With only 100 to ever be built, the Fenyr Supersport is a ferocious, 790bhp, Middle Eastern force on the tarmac. It’s a hypercar claiming a mind-boggling 250mph top speed figure and will get from 0-60mph in a blistering 2.7 seconds. This successor to the outlandish Lykan Hypersport is expected to give some incredible off-the-line action at the FOS.
Singer does business in a unique way: taking everything it loves about Porsche and reimagining it into something of a greatest hits album, and the result is stunning. The Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer ‘Design & Lightweight Study’ is the 500bhp, 990kg Porsche restomod that took the world by storm at the Festival last year. Specialists Singer have teamed up with Williams Advanced Engineering to create a perfectly crafted 911. With the 964’s original 243bhp, 3.6-litre flat-six engine tweaked to a 4-litre unit with four-valve heads and a whopping 493bhp, the DLS boasts a higher bhp-per-tonne ratio than the McLaren 720S.
Last year’s Michelin Showstopper of the Festival is back. Well, sort of! A new updated version of the utterly insane Apollo Intensa Emozione - Italian for ‘intense emotion’ – has a primary goal of delivering exactly that without compromise. The €2.3 million track-only hypercar will be found in the Michelin Supercar Paddock this year. Aerodynamically focussed, it's a beast that sports a 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated V12 and weighs only 1,250kg. The IE can hit 0-62mph in 2.7 seconds and carry on to a rapid 208mph. It creates enough downforce to (theoretically) drive upside-down and has a 3D laser-printed triplet exhaust that costs more than a new BMW M4. What more needs to be said…
Lotus have a habit of creating the extraordinary. Breaking records, pioneering new innovations and going fast. Very fast. In just a few weeks’ time, the iconic Lotus brand will unveil an all-British, all-electric hypercar, but that isn’t stopping the 71-year-old start-up from focusing on the here and now. A return for the legendary Lotus motorsport DNA, the Evora GT4 will take the fight back to the world’s fastest GT racers. Unveiled in Shanghai earlier this year, the racer brings over six decades of racing expertise to the global GT world. The GT4 will be up on the Michelin Supercar Paddock stage over the four-day festival after, of course, it makes its worldwide dynamic debut up the Hill.
This monstrous V8-powered hypercar from Koenigsegg is no ordinary Agera. It uses the same monstrous 1,360bhp, 1,011lb-ft powertrain as the legendary One:1 – the world’s first megacar. Last year, the standard Agera RS became the fastest production car in the world, making this version – with a 200hp increase in power – even quicker! Be prepared for a total obliteration of the Goodwood hill. If that isn’t enough Swedish power for you, then head over to the Michelin Main Stand where Koenigsegg’s latest hypercar – the Jesko – will be sat. With an eye-watering 1,600bhp, it’s set to break the production speed record again with a staggering 300mph+ top speed.
Another car to spot in the Michelin Main Stand is the all-new road-going supercar from Ginetta. Named after a Russian submarine, the Akula is not a supercar to lurk in the shadows. On paper, it certainly looks like it can deliver, sporting a full carbon fibre body and with well over 600bhp coming from its naturally-aspirated V8, the Akula is a study in lightweight construction and aerodynamics. This is a supercar that uses all of Ginetta’s extensive experience in building some of the world’s best track predators to create a serious road-going, racing weapon.
You might be forgiven to think that there will be an Asian orchid within the Michelin Main Stand but this Dendrobium is anything but a delicate flower. It’s nothing short of a monster, with 1,800bhp and 1,475lb of torque at its disposal. With the power to change perception, it sure packs a fearsome punch! The D-1 is a multi-layered, all-electric powerhouse. According to Dendrobium “performance is redundant if we can’t get the power down on the road.” That’s where Michelin’s advanced understanding of the laws of physics and tyre compound chemistry comes in. Bucket loads of grip are required to keep this stunning hypercar glued solidly to terra firma – make sure you pay it a visit this weekend!

LOTUS AT THE GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED 2019
Win a unique Lotus Evora
Lotus is a committed supporter of the Jim Clark Trust, the Scotland-based charity that celebrates the life of one of the greatest racing drivers of all time, and who first entered the world stage driving a Lotus.
Up the Hill
Eight legendary Lotus cars prepared by Lotus Cars and Classic Team Lotus will head up the Goodwood Hill Climb at the 2019 Festival of Speed:
Lotus 18 – chassis 912
This famous Lotus Type 18 in Rob Walker Racing colours was driven by Stirling Moss to arguably his greatest victory at the Monaco Grand Prix in 1961. It’s a race where the temperature at the circuit was so high that the side panels of this particular car were removed to allow cooler air to circulate around the cockpit, helping Moss to a spectacular win. This Lotus 18/912 will be driven by Clive Chapman, the son of Lotus founder, Colin Chapman.
Lotus 38 – chassis R7
Following a painstaking restoration, this Lotus Type 38 was driven by Al Unser in 1966 and Jim Clark at the 1967 Indy 500 races. It is liveried in the striking ‘Dayglo-Rocket-Red’ STP colour scheme with white high-mounted exhausts. The car will be driven by owner Nick Fennell.
Lotus 49 – Chassis R10
Chassis R10 is the only F1 car to have won the Monaco GP twice - in 1968 and 1969, both times by Graham Hill. R10 will be high-wing 1968 specification and driven by the Graham’s son Damon, the 1997 F1 World Champion. Damon is familiar with his father’s legendary Gold-Leaf red-white-and-gold car, having driven it at the 1,000 F1 World Championship race at Shanghai earlier this year. At that event, this famous Lotus 49 was given pride of place by being the only historic car invited to celebrate the landmark occasion race.
Lotus 72 – Chassis 5
The Lotus Type 72 is the most successful F1 design in the history of motorsport. At Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019 it will be united with its legendary driver Emerson Fittipaldi who drove it to the drivers’ and constructors’ World Championship honours in 1972 and again in the 1973 F1 campaign until it was crashed at the Dutch GP. The car has undergone a complete repair and restoration by Classic Team Lotus, using the original design drawings penned by Colin Chapman and chief engineer Maurice Phillipe to ensure it is returned to original specification. Emerson Fittipaldi considers 72/5 to be his favourite, having won his first GP in it, at Watkins Glen in 1970. Multiple Le Mans winner, Jacky Ickx, who raced a Lotus 72 in the 1974 and 1975 seasons, will also be taking the wheel of 72/5.
79/2 is one of the cars that Mario Andretti campaigned and won the F1 Championship in 1978. The Type 79 pioneered the use of ground-effect aerodynamic downforce through its Venturi profiled underbody, and recently won the ‘Innovation Category’ award at the London Concours. This car will be driven by Lee Mowle, a British GT competitor and Classic Team Lotus customer.
Exige Sport 410 and Evora GT410 Sport
In the supercar runs, a Lotus Exige Sport 410 and a Lotus Evora GT410 Sport, both in the iconic Lotus yellow colour scheme, will be driven by two of Lotus’ leading Vehicle Dynamics Engineers, Dan Peck and James Hazlehurst.
