Motoring expert Russell Knight on the most exciting cars you can spot at this weekend’s Goodwood Revival...

1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB ‘Alloy’ Berlinetta Recreation

The Berlinetta dominated its class in international GT racing in the early sixties, and is the ultimate dual-purpose Ferrari for racetrack and highway.

1966 Ferrari 275GTB/6C ‘Alloy’ Berlinetta

A classic sports car design. A penetrative nose, long bonnet, purposeful side vents, high waistline and short be-spoiled tail – but the result was much more than the sum of its parts.

1967/1988 Jaguar XK SS 3.8-litre Recreation

One of the rarest Jaguars and a legendary sports car. The Jaguar XKSS original derived from the legendary 1950s Jaguar D- Type Le Mans winning car. A softer more elegant road going race car for the elite buyer and one Steve McQueen. To source one of the 16 original examples would come at a undisclosed 7- figure premium.

1972 Porsche 911S 2.4-Litre Coupé Prototype

A modern classic that took Porsche’s reputation on the road and racetrack to the next level. It’s a beautiful car – helped not least by its striking gulf orange colour. This prototype was sold to the former manager of the Lotus Formula 1 team, and was driven at the Bianchi Rally and the 24-hour Ypres Rally in 1976, where it finished in sixth place.

2005 Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG Coupé

This is an exciting car – it’s one of the most exclusive and sought after limited-edition Mercedes-Benz models ever. In fact, only a hundred were ever produced – with two of them being owned by F1’s Jenson Button and Takuma Sato. It was developed by Mercedes-Benz's official performance division and given a supercharged engine – making it shockingly fast.

1993 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta

The F40 was the ultimate supercar in its day and was introduced to celebrate Enzo Ferrari’s 40th anniversary as a road car manufacturer. Despite its scintillating speed and explosive acceleration it’s easy to handle, with great grip and balance. At the time this was the closest thing to driving a race car on the road – its turbos even make the ‘whoosh’ sound of an F1 car.
