The world's most valuable cars will be heading to Goodwood this weekend for a mouth-watering programme of historic motor racing.

The West Sussex event has attracted more than £600m-worth of classic racing cars – some rarely seen and others worth many millions of pounds.

Arguably taking centre stage will be a display celebrating the Ferrari 250 GTO. The legendary racing car celebrates its half-century this year, and Goodwood will have 15 examples making a daily track parade.

With each car worth approximately £20m, the organisers are saying it'll be the most valuable collection of cars ever seen in the show's 14-year history.

Another dream gathering will be the Silver Arrows – a collection of pre-war Auto Union and Mercedes racing cars.

It'll be the first time in more than 70 years a complete selection of these fearsome German motors will be on British soil, and the cars will be doing battle against MGs, Maseratis, ERAs and Rileys.

Most of the Silver Arrows are said by experts to be priceless, and Goodwood reckons the line-up will be worth in excess of £100m.


The jewel in the Revival's crown is the one-hour, two-driver RAC TT Celebration race – and if last year's TT was anything to go by, spectators will not be disappointed in 2012.

The grid will consist of Ferrari 250 GTOs, Jaguar E-Type Lightweights and special Aston Martins, and the combined line-up will again be worth more than £100m.

And new for this year is the Shelby Cup. Organisers have laid on a special commemorative event to mark the death earlier this year of American racing great Carroll Shelby. The 45-minute long Cup will feature a grid of AC Cobras worth a combined £20m.

Tickets to the three-day event are sold out – but the event is sure to be screened on TV later this year.

In the meantime, watch last year's RAC TT Celebration race – and prepare to be amazed!
