Vauxhall are to bring a touch of 1920s glamour to the 16th annual Goodwood Revival, which will take place over this coming weekend.
An iconic 1926 OE-type 30-98 belonging to the Vauxhall Heritage Centre will take pride of place in the Goodwood Revival Transport Corps at the three-day event this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Despite the vintage vehicle having been built 22 years before Goodwood racing circuit first opened in 1948, it would have been a popular sight in the circuit's early days, owing to it's impressive racing performance.
The Vauxhall Heritage car boasts a Velox body and is one of the most original examples in existence. It is known by its chassis number, 'OE268 and usually resides in the Vauxhall Heritage centre in Luton.
Rather than sitting still, the fully functioning vehicle will provide Goodwood's racers with a ride to remember before they reach the circuit.
The British automobile manufacturer will be hosting the Vauxhall Cinema stand at the Earls Court Motor Show, which forms part of the revival. Visitors will be able to watch 'Goldviva', a short film starring Sean Connelly to promote the all-new 2015 Vauxhall Viva.
