Players: Classic 2017

Its that time of year again, the sun is shining, the weather is hot, and we’ve headed to the historic venue of Goodwood Motor Circuit, Chichester. For the arguably most diverse show of the year. This time around the layout was a little different, with a new ‘Trade Village’ – which worked much better in our opinion. The day was a complete scorcher, there was a great vibe in the air with the smell of rubber from the cars flying around the race track, check out our coverage from the show!

JAMES BATTY

BMW M3 F80

You don’t get much more agressive that the look of BMW’s latest M car – the F80 M3, but coupled with a set of ADV1’s and a HP Drivetech / Accuair airride system, installed by Plush Automotive you get one hell of a ride. Not to mention the mass of tuning upgrades pushing this thing well past 500BHP.

MARCEL BAEUMERS

MERCEDES 280SE V8

We had another catchup with our friend from Europe, and his incredible V8 Stack-light. All of the modifications on this 280SE were of the period, if not older – just to keep that classic feel. For example, Hidden air ride components in a 50s suitcase in the boot. Some ceramic polished 15-inch Barock wheels, together with white walls. This car is just perfect.
