The Michelin Supercar Paddock is celebrating record breakers at the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a number of powerful, eye-catching icons already confirmed for the event.

Home to some of the most powerful road and track specialist cars, the Michelin Supercar Paddock will be one of the most exclusive locations for fans to catch a glimpse of rarely spotted hypercar machinery. This year is set to be the most eventful to date, with an exciting line-up of celebrities, motorsport greats and esteemed automotive figures on the live stage keeping the crowds entertained.

This year’s Batch 6 Michelin Supercar Run is made up of some 70 of the finest supercars and hypercars, which are all housed within the Paddock and First Glance area at the Festival. Outside of this, Michelin has confirmed a small selection of the most desirable and hotly anticipated motors that will take pride of place in the Supercar Paddock.
These are the Koenigsegg Regera, Mercedes AMG GT R Black Series, Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR and the all-electric Everrati ‘Signature’ wide body.

Designed specifically to be one of the most prominent and exclusive in luxury megacars, the Koenigsegg Regera combines a powerful twin-turbo V8 combustion engine with three electric motors. Coupled with cutting-edge 800-volt battery power, this 1500bhp hypercar broke the 0-249-0mph (0-400-0kmh) world record in a staggering 31.49 seconds. It beat the previous record from the Swedish brand’s Agera RS, which completed it in an equally mind blowing 33.29 seconds.


Lining up alongside the Koenigsegg, the world’s fastest production car around the Nürburgring, the Mercedes AMG GT R Black Series, will also take pride of place within the Paddock. Conquering the legendary Nordschleife circuit with an astounding lap time of 6 minutes 43.616 seconds, this 720bhp powerhouse defeated the previous record by over a second on its Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO tyres. Boasting a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine, the Mercedes can reach 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 202mph.

The 700bhp Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR is set to appear in the Michelin Supercar Paddock. Built in cooperation with legendary outfit Manthey-Racing – recent winners of the Nürburgring 24 Hour endurance race – it became the fastest road-legal sports car around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 2018, completing a lap of the 20.6-kilometre-long circuit in a breath-taking time of 6 minutes 40.3 seconds.  

Everrati’s stunning ‘Signature’ wide body is also set to line-up within the Paddock.

Based upon a fully restored 1991 Porsche 911 964, featuring carbon fibre body elements and a state-of-the-art 500bhp EV powertrain, coupled to a 53kWh battery pack and battery management system, the car is capable of delivering an electric, emission-free driving range of more than 150 miles and sub-4-second 0-62mph acceleration.

This year Michelin has its own dedicated garage within the Supercar Paddock, which will play host to a special car making its dynamic debut at the event. Boasting a 6.2-litre V8 and on Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, the car will be unveiled live on the Michelin Supercar Paddock stage to visitors on Thursday morning.

Visitors to the Festival of Speed can expect to get up close to some of the most influential voices in the automotive world, who will join TV star Vicki Butler-Henderson, and legendary racer, Tim Harvey, on stage to discuss some of the world’s finest examples of automotive design and engineering. On Saturday at the event, a selection of special guests will select an overall winner for the Michelin Supercar Paddock Showstopper of the Festival award.
