Hankering to drive a D-Type or an E-Type? Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations division wants you to do just that.


Earlier this year Jag Land Rover bought 500+ cars from the British car collection of Dr. James Hull to the tune of an estimated $50 million dollars.


Jaguar has been talking about a “brand center” for a long time and the acquisition of some serious cars now gives them a fleet to draw from.

Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience

Among the 130 Jaguars included in the Hull collection were C-Types, D-Types, and XKSS and an SS100. Rounded out by some early E-Types, alloy body 120’s, and Bob’s your uncleyou’ve got an arrive and drive experience.


Jaguar Land Rover is offering three types of experiences beginning mid-November, 2014.




You ride along with a pro driver with the option of driving a heritage E-Type and it’s only a couple of hundred bucks.


The LEMANS EXPERIENCE: for about a grand, you can do a bit of seat time in a C-Type, D-Type and XKSS.


The GRACE AND PACE EXPERIENCE will run you $3000, but the package is a full day of undoubtedly good times in post-war racing machines to sports saloons.
