For the first time since the concours began in 1995, the Style et Luxe enclosure is given over to a single collection of cars. To celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Goodwood has gathered more than 30 vehicles owned or used by the Queen during her reign. These range from the Rolls-Royce Phantom IV used by the Queen during her first royal engagement in 1952 to assorted cars on loan from her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. Among the many fabulous machines used for overseas’ engagements is a Lincoln Cosmpolitan ‘Bubbletop’ from the Henry Ford Museum in the US which is making its first-ever appearance in Europe.
Less dramatic but no less intriguing are the Queen’s personal cars including her beloved Rover P5. There is also a collection of toy cars including the miniature Aston Martin DB5 made for a six-year-old Prince Andrew in 1966. Facing the difficult task of finding a winner in the five classes are the Queen’s nephew Lord Linley and Life on Mars actor Philip Glenister.
