The annual Goodwood Festival of Speed is right around the corner and automakers are preparing to bring out all their major projects and recent releases to show off to attendees and the press. One of the most notable figures attending the 23rd annual festival is British auto manufacturer Aston Martin.

Aston Martin has decided to bring their A-game to the festival by showing off a total of four new models, some we’ve seen before and some that are making their debut. One of the cars that has the automotive community the most excited is the “global dynamic debut” of the D11, which is a fancy way to say, the first time the community will see the car actually move its self with its power train. Dr. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin’s president and CEO, will have the honor of being the first drive the DB11 up Goodwood’s hill climb.

If the DB11 is a little too tame for your taste, then rest assure, the track inspired Aston Martin Vulcan will be making an appearance once again. With the Vulcan being limited to only 24 models worldwide, all of which are now spoken for, this may be your only chance to get anywhere near the car.

Continuing with the theme of racing heritage inspired cars, the Vantage GT-8 will also be attending the festival. Aston Martin Racing Works driver, Darren Turner, will be driving the car in the festival’s Super Car shoot out which will take place on the Goodwood hill.

For the true Aston Martin enthusiast, the auto manufacturer will also be bringing the V12 Vantage to show off to fans.

“The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is the marque’s offering to the purists and it will be demonstrating its exceptional agility at the Festival of Speed. Offered with a 7-speed manual transmission, featuring a ‘dog-leg’ first gear, the Vantage S epitomises Aston Martin’s commitment to building exceptional sports cars.”

Aston Martin seems to be bringing out a little something for every type of Aston Martin fan. Attendees are sure to be pleased seeing some of the newest additions to the Aston family in motion.
