BMW Named Featured Marque of 2016 Goodwood Festival

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed will honor BMW as its featured marque. 

BMW is also celebrating its centenary this year, making it fitting that the luxury automaker from Bavaria would be featured at the massive annual automotive festival.

As the featured marque always does, BMW will be in charge of the large sculpture on Goodwood house’s front lawn. This year, it will feature a 328 Mille Miglia Roadster, a Brabham-BMW BT52 Formula 1 car, and a Le Mans-winning V12 LMR.

BMW will also make sure to have its Rolls-Royce and MINI models also prominently on display, celebrating their British heritage. The M brand will also have its display known as “M Avenue” which will celebrate BMW’s performance brand’s 40-year history.
