And who better to pilot a bright orange example up the Goodwood hill during the weekend's supercar runs than the company's Formula 1 drivers, current world champion Jenson Button and the man he surpassed to the title, Lewis Hamilton. Both are British heroes and drove the car to whoops, cheers and applause.
