The world's largest garden party finished today at Goodwood and our gallery is filled with only the best cars from the hill climb.

Jaguar aficionado Justin Law posted the fastest time in his Jaguar XJR8/9 with a time of 45.95 seconds. Two seconds slower was Peugeot's 208 T16 Pikes Peak car.

Almost every manufacturer supported the festival and many brought new cars specifically for the event.

Our supercar page includes some extremely impressive cars, but only the McLaren P1 came close the radical design of the Peugeot Onyx from 2012.

On the racecar page we have the fastest cars of the event. Many outright Le Mans winners were driven up the hill including the 2013-winning Audi R18 e-tron quattro Langheck.

Our final gallery page from Goodwood is reserved for the classics from the turn of the century up to the 1960s. The very selective committee at Goodwood chose only the best cars from each era.

On Friday morning Bonhams broke the record for a motor car at Goodwood. They fetched £19,601,500 which is nearly $30,000,000 USD for the Ex-Juan Manuel Fangio 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196R.
