Maserati Wins Style Shoot-Out At 2014 Goodwood Festival Of SpeedTue, 01 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0700
MULTIPLE world rally winner Sebastien Loeb wasn’t the one to leave Goodwood’s Festival of Speed smiling. And while he might have been the fastest up the hill, he wasn’t judged ‘best in show’.
That title went to a particular Maserati A6 CGS Berlinetta, which was entered in the Festival’s traditional ‘style-et-luxe’ concours d’elegance event.
The event, which was held on the Cartier lawn, celebrated its 20th running this year, and is tasked with judging the best in exquisite automotive design throughout the history of the motor industry.
The Maserati, owned by Egon Zweimuller Jr, took victory in the coachbuilt Maserati-only Class 3. It later beat off competition from the other class winners to claim the overall spoils.
The judging panel was chaired by Mail on Sunday editor Geordie Greig and also featured Olympic gold medallists Sir Chris Hoy and Sally Gunnell, actor Rowan Atkinson, Apple design chief Sir Jonathan Ive and renowned handbag designer Anya Hindmarch plus other notable names from the worlds of sport, the arts and design.
