The Goodwood Festival of Speed is basically the biggest motoring even of the summer. Spectators flock to the West Sussex estate to see some of the most exciting and expensive cars out there being driven as they should be.
We’re guessing that nobody came to check out how good the Gumpert Apollo looks, because it’s one of the ugliest exotics in the world. However, it’s got fully adjustable suspension. So you can get it to be as wild as possible. If you get it wrong, 800 horsepower will bite you in the backside.

The traction control on the Gumpert is also fully selectable. But this one appears to have been set up all wrong because it crashed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012. The crash took place at about 80 miles per hour with a female passenger inside, who was taken to hospital. Thankfully, she was fine if not a little shocked.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
