Aston Martin was the featured marque at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, where twice a day a wide range of Aston Martins climbed the hill next to Goodwood House. The Astons varied from modern builds to pre-war cars dating back to 1921.
Ecurie Bertelli had the opportunity to bring a pre-war vehicle along; Speed model 'Red Dragon' from 1936. It was in action this weekend, and previously won the same Hill climb at Goodwood in 1952.
Aston Martin brought several brand-new models to the mix this year including the company's first SUV (The DBX, with a powerful V8 engine,) the Vantage AMR, and the DBS Superlegerra Volente. Aston Martin also showed off its first pure-electric car, the Rapide E. In addition to these, cars which had competed in F1 races were on display with many other car makers bringing new never-seen-before models to the event.
Among the cars featured were these front the pre-war era-
A3 (Side Valve - 1921)
‘Green Pea’ (Side Valve - 1923)
Halford Special (Modified B&M Team car - 1923)
Razor Blade (Side Valve bodied by de Havilland Aircraft Co - 1923)
LM18 (ex-Works Ulster - 1935)
CMC 614 (Ulster raced alongside Works team - 1935)
