Rolls-Royce Drives Up The Goodwood Hillclimb
Is there anything more dramatic-looking than the sight of a luxury machine like a Rolls-Royce being hustled the way it was meant to be? I doubt it. That’s why I can’t stop looking at these images of the Rolls-Royce hillclimb at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It looks awesome.
The action started with the Supercar Shootout, where the Wraith Black Badge sped up the hill in a very respectable 65.05 seconds. The big Rolls-Royce hit a top speed of 94.8mph across the 1.16-mile course. It is unclear whether anybody was in the back enjoying a glass of Champagne in the plush seats during the run, but I am guessing probably not.
The Course Car this year was a Rolls-Royce Ghost Black Badge. Rolls-Royce gave it the Goodwood treatment too, with custom LED race lights and Goodwood stickers. The car was seen at speed between each Hillclimb Run throughout the weekend.
