Goodwood, England - The Goodwood Festival of Speed, which took place this weekend from Friday June 24 - 26 2016 at Lord March’s private estate on the South Downs, England showed an unrivaled line-up of high-performance exotica. 

Some of the world's most desirable cars were there, including Bugatti's quad-turbocharged Chiron, the world's most powerful production car. 

From Nico Rosberg performing one-handed donuts in his Mercedes F1 car to to the world's most powerful production storming up the Hill, here are the five best Goodwood Festival of Speed videos.

1. Lord March became the first non-professional driver ever to drive the new Bugatti Chiron.

This quad-turbocharged hypercar appears set to become the fastest production car ever made, Bugatti claiming a top speed of 420km/h and 0-100km/h time of just 2.5 seconds.

This 1102kW, eight-litre, W16-engine monster costs around £1.9-million, and is a replacement for the not exactly slow Veyron 16.4. Just 360 are set to be built.

2. Nico Rosberg performs one-handed 'donuts' in Mercedes F1 car

On the final day (Sunday) of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Mercedes Formula 1 driver, Nico Rosberg, arrived to drive the 2014 F1 W05 Hybrid up the famous hill for the final time at the Festival.

The German impressed the crowds with a display of driving skill, watch below: 

3. Nissan's world record-breaking GT-R Nismo drift car was there!

Festival guests had the chance to see the Guinness World Record-holding Nissan GT-R Nismo power up the hill. You may recall that in April 2016, the car broke the record for the fastest ever drift – a 30 degree angle at 304.96km/h

Watch it in action: 

4. Mercedes' AMG GT R was unveiled and it's green! 

Mercedes unveiled the most powerful version of its AMG GT at the Goodwood Festival to the world for the first time.

The two-door sports car is powered by a 430kW uprated 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged engine. It also sounds deathly on the overrun. 

Just listen to it:

5. And finally...Aston Martin's 596kW Vulcan caused chaos up the hill

The Aston Martin Vulcan is a salute to the old school style of hypercars: no hybrid or electric systems here.

The British automaker uses a 7.0-litre V12 engine producing as near as makes no difference 600kW!

Watch it make its way up the hill:
