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.
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 uncle…you’ve got an arrive and drive experience.
Jaguar Land Rover is offering three types of experiences beginning mid-November, 2014.
The JAGUAR EXPERIENCE:
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.
So if you are off to England and can arrange to be in the West Midlands, Jaguar’s Fen End facility promises to hand you a driving experience second to none.
