The Aero Alfa
As most of you know, The Goodwood Festival of Speed is a huge celebration of many of the things we love. Every year it seems to get more and more of an essential date in the summer diary.
If you care even a little bit about the the style, mechanics, heritage, design – and general magnificence of cars, then you have to be there.
Thing is, there is so much to see, a single day is nowhere near enough.
We regularly rely on lensmen of repute to dish up the best stuff from the event every year.
And Scott Dennis’s amazing motion blur of the obscure and beautiful ‘Aero Alfa’ (above) takes the proverbial biscuit.
This car has a really murky, complex history, much of which is documented very well here.
Its slippery design – straight out of the manifesto of Italian Futurism – is heartbreakingly pleasing to the eye.
Stay tuned for more of Scott Dennis’s work in the forthcoming print mag – and go to Scott’s blog for more high-end photography from Goodwood.
It’s some of the best we’ve seen.
