Autonomous 1965 Ford Mustang At Goodwood Classic Ford Mustang will attempt first ever autonomous Goodwood hill climb run

The 2020 Toyota Supra made its "dynamic debut" at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on Thursday as chief engineer Tetsuya Tada and master driver Herwig Daenens sprinted the sports auto up the famed hill climb.

There's not much information about the specifics of the tech required, but we do know the car's been wrapped in a special livery celebrating the 25th anniversary of Goodwood.

"Goodwood offers us a chance to reflect on why we have an emotional connection with cars and acts as a reminder that humans like to be engaged and part of the action".

Sverdlov has described the new series as "gaming, motorsport, technology and entertainment all rolled into one", and that it's created to "provide a competitive platform for the autonomous driving solutions that are now being developed". This is the first time ever that autonomous vehicles will be allowed to make the famous hill-climb. Complete with a 289-cubic-inch V-8 under the hood and a three-speed transmission with a shifter sprouting from the center tunnel, it fully keeps its classic original style, including the signature double center stripe. They had a hard time adapting the autonomous hardware to the car's traditional steering and suspension bits. Using advanced location scanning technology from Bentley Systems, the engineering team behind the vehicle has developed an accurate 3-Dimensional scan of the track so as to help the autonomous Mustang track its way through the hill climb. A 3D scan of the track was also created to give the auto awareness of its position. Essentially, it will have an idea of where it's going before it rolls a single degree up that hill. The very first example fetched a whopping $300,000 at an auction for a good cause - more than six times the car's starting price in the US where it costs from $46,595.

The auto is powered by four 135kW electric motors that are used to drive each wheel, resulting in a more than 500-horsepower vehicle. See it for yourself on Thursday, July 12.
