Legendary Volvo and BMW touring cars, and Pagani and Nio supercars ...

Although it could do no better than a fifth in a race, one of the most famous cars to compete in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) is the Volvo 850 Estate. Built and run for Volvo by Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR), it was raced in the 1994 season by Jan Lammers and Rickard Rydell. Used for a single year only, it was replaced by the more conventional and successful saloon version from 1995 onwards. Only three examples were built and the first one was demonstrated at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the BTCC.
Another superb touring car that starred at Goodwood was this BMW M3 that was reunited with original driver Steve Soper for the occasion. He had driven this very car in period to an outright victory in the 1992 Spa 24 Hours together with Christian Danner and Jean-Michel Martin.
In addition to historic racing cars, the Festival of Speed also features brand-new supercars. Among the most spectacular this year was the Pagani Zonda HP Barchetta. Famously priced at $15 million each, this special edition Zonda was built for Horacio Pagani himself. Two further examples of the most powerful road-going Zonda yet went to customers, who had already acquired the car long before it broke cover. Among the very fastest cars on the hill this year was the Nio EP9. The all-electric supercar features four electric motors for a combined 1 MW of power. In the hands of Peter Dumbreck, the EP9 was the second fastest car of the weekend.
