Goodwood Festival Of Speed 2012

The Goodwood Festival of Speed, commonly known as FoS is an annual hill climb featuring historic motor racing vehicles that is held in the grounds of Goodwood House, West Sussex, England.

The Festival Of Speed this year was a celebration of 50 years of the Cobra, hence the appearance of the original 1960's wooden body buck that the cars are still made off of today. This event was also used to launch the new AC Zagato, after its earlier appearance at The Geneva Motor Show.

AC is back in business, with the AC 378 GT Zagato available directly from our company. The beautifully styled Italian-designed 378 has attracted considerable interest since it appeared as a suprise exhibit at Geneva. Conceived by the famous Italian design house Zagato as the Perana in 2009, the AC 378 GT Zagato reunites the AC brand with an Italian design heritage which spans both the AC Ace Bristol Zagato of the 1950s and the AC Frua of the mid Sixties.

The brands cars spanning classics such as the Cobra-inspired hand-crafted aluminium AC Mk II and the visually similar but more affordable AC MkII Classic, through to the all-new 378 GT Zagato, which features a 6.2-litre GM V8 engine delivering 434 bhp and the kind of aural qualities only a V8 can produce.
