Goodwood FoS preview with past racers and new machines from Jaguar Land Rover ...

While the more modern sports racers and supercars often draw the most attention, the Goodwood Festival of Speed also always features an eclectic mix of early machinery. This year one the absolute stars will be Duncan Pittaway's freshly restored Fiat S.76. This behemoth boats a 28.5 litre four cylinder and was built as a record breaker in 1911. To get in the mood, we have today taken a closer look at its 'little' brother, the Fiat S.74. Powered by a 14.3 litre version of the same engine, it is only slightly more modest but was certainly more successful. The featured example was raced in period by Caleb Bragg, who most notably drove it to victory in the 1912 American Grand Prix at Milwaukee. Today, it is part of the most impressive collection of early competition cars and as can be seen in our 33-shot gallery, it is regularly demonstrated and raced on both sides of the Atlantic.
One of last year's big stars was the meticulously restored Bugatti Type 59 Grand Prix. Created immediately before the arrival of the German teams, it was the last Bugatti to win a Grand Prix. The featured example has benefited from a recent restoration and is owned by the former president of the current Volkswagen owned Bugatti Automobiles.
Among the new cars certain to draw attention will definitely be the Jaguar F-Type Project 7. Shown in concept form last year, this limited edition model is based on the F-Type and features a cut-down roof with a 575hp version of the supercharged V8 engine. The Project 7 name is a reference to the seven outright Le Mans wins scored by Jaguar.
Sister company Land Rover will offer a first glimpse of a new high performance model by demonstrating the thinly disguised Range Rover Sport SVR. Powered by a 550hp V8, this is the first Land Rover to wear the SVR badge, which will be used on all range topping models in the future.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
