The Goodwood Festival of Speed is exactly that: a celebration of the finest in motoring pedigree and performance, hosted on the Goodwood House estate in West Sussex, U.K.
The largest "motoring garden party" in the world, the weekend-long festival brings together the most significant cars from motoring history, curated around a central theme, which this year was "Young Guns - Born to Win."
Examples of vehicles included the 1937 Mercedes-Benz W125 Grand Prix racer, and a plethora of Ferraris, Jaguars and Bugattis were put through their paces on the estate's 2-kilometer hill-climb track.
Among the notable attendees were Prince Michael of Kent, Sir Stirling Moss and Formula One stars Jenson Button and McLaren-Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.
The 2012 event ran from June 28-July 1.
