1960s F1 cars at the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Goodwood Festival of Speed

Cosworth’s experimental four-wheel-drive car from 1969 is among the unusual machines on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Here are pictures of the radical, angular car plus more machines from the same decade built by Ferrari, Lotus, Brabham and others.

More images of these cars will be added here through the weekend.

See here for pictures of the Ferguson P99 and a history of the car:

    The Cosworth 4WD is certainly a … Unique looking car! :D

    Cosworth 4WD: Wow, how goofy is that design?? Amazing that they didn’t even consider moving the radiators into sidepods to minimize the front end area and free up space for the front drivetrain components.

    Ferrari: Again, wow. What a tiny car.
    And the wing downforce is transferred via the engine valve covers! Not sure how much downforce total, but that’s still some serious stress on and between the valve covers/gaskets and the cylinder heads. (Seems strange, but maybe not much stranger than the early roll hoop supports bolted to the engine valve covers.)

    If wings ever get banned, please mandate updated Brabham-style cars!

    This is real F1 porn. I will study all the pictures again. The Brabham BT24 is just… just…. gorgeous…

    Fabulous pics, but I think one of them is mis-labelled. The dark one with the orange nose – car 9 – isn’t a Brabham BT24, I think it’s a Cooper.

    IMHO, this was a decade with best looking F1 cars (I’ll choose to ignore that Cosworth 4WD thank you very much).

    When I look at those pictures, it amazes me the huge amount of human intelligence and engineering and good ideas and silly ideas that goes into developing a good F1 car. Those pictures of the Cosworth 4WD are just amazing.
    Take for example this video : Alan Jones testing a Williams with NO SUSPENSIONS…. Ok, his “oh, faaak” is hilarious, and his dialog with Frank Williams is epic, but the idea to send to the track a car without suspensions is just astonishing.
    I’m in an awe with the Cosworth’s pictures.
