Aston Martin to Dazzle at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Aston Martin will supply velocity with verve at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed (11 – 14 July) when Valkyrie, Valour, Valiant, Victor, and Vantage headline the marque’s line-up of ultra-luxury sports cars heading up the famous Goodwood Hillclimb.

The Festival of Speed, held at Goodwood every July, is a highlight of the British summer season. The event has become an unmissable pilgrimage for lovers of speed who travel from across the world to revel in the sights and sounds of the world’s finest sports cars, driven by the racing stars of the past, the present, and the future.

Visitors to this year’s Festival are in for some high-octane thrills, courtesy of Aston Martin, as they witness the global debut of the Aston Martin Valiant. This car is one of just 38 ultra-exclusive, track-focused, road-legal special editions, created following a personal commission by Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team driver, two-time Formula One® World Champion Fernando Alonso. Alonso will drive the new car on Friday at Goodwood. Embodying Aston Martin’s commitment to build pure driver’s cars, Valiant is sure to be one of the stars of the show, especially in its Muncher-inspired specification, which is a nod to the legendary Aston Martin Le Mans race car.

Joining Valiant in the Supercar Paddock and on the Goodwood Hillclimb is a truly eye-watering line-up of Aston Martins:

  • Valkyrie: Aston Martin’s game-changing hypercar, which made its dynamic debut at Goodwood in 2021, is back. It is now the inspiration for the new Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR-LMH hypercar, set to return the brand to the top echelons of sports car racing in 2025.
  • Valour: Created to celebrate Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary, Valour features a bespoke 6-speed manual transmission uniquely mated to a 5.2-litre Twin-Turbo V12 for maximum driver engagement and timeless classic appeal.
  • Victor: A one-of-a-kind car described by Top Gear as “the hypercar the eighties never had.” Created by the brand’s unique personalization service, ‘Q by Aston Martin,’ it boasts a manual gearbox and a V12 engine.
  • Vantage: The latest iteration of Aston Martin’s focused sportscar, the new Vantage continues the tradition of potent front-engined, rear-wheel-drive sports cars, engineered for maximum thrills and confidence. It will also be represented in the motorsport paddock by the one-off Official FIA Safety Car of Formula 1® and the new-for-2024 Vantage GT3 race car.

Joining all the ‘V’ models at Goodwood is the world’s first Super Tourer, the Aston Martin DB12, the first of a new generation of sports cars. Also on display in the First Glance paddock is the new DBX707, showcasing its striking new interior design and state-of-the-art infotainment system, developed in-house at Aston Martin.

Marco Mattiacci, Global Chief Brand & Commercial Officer, said: “The Festival of Speed is the highlight of the season for those who worship at the temple of speed. We are proud to play a part in this incredible, annual celebration of speed, and this year we are delighted to offer up quite the array of Aston Martin sports cars and the brand-new spec of DBX707. We look forward to this event every year as it is a great opportunity to showcase our brand to true connoisseurs of sports cars.”

The 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed gets underway on July 11th and runs through until July 14th.
