Day 1 of the Goodwood Festival of Speed has come and gone and despite some inclement weather, there was still plenty to drink in for automotive and motorsports enthusiasts of all types.

Turning lots of heads this year is McLaren, who has brought along the P1 GTR James Hunt Edition, which is painted to look like the late racing driver’s helmet. The British automaker will also present the 650S Spider Can-Am Edition at the show, along with the road legal P1 LM.

Lamborghini, meanwhile, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Miura with a special new Aventador. Like the Miura, the homage car features a contrasting lower section and also sports Miura badging on the sides and rear. Just 50 examples will be put into production.

BMW arrived at Goodwood with its 2002 Hommage concept, first presented at unveiled at Villa D’Este in Lake Como, Italy last month. The car is a nod to the BMW 2002 Turbo, with throwback styling that plays off that of the 1970’s sports compact.

Other highlights for GTSpirit include the Bugatti Chiron, Sauber C9 and Mercedes Benz 300 SLS.
