For some of you, the halcyon days of the British automotive industry may seem like a distant memory, but with one of the classic car driving experiences on offer from U Drive Cars you can get the opportunity to get behind the wheel of some of the finest vehicles this country ever produced.
For a classic car enthusiast these experiences would make for the ideal gift this Christmas – even if you’re just giving it to yourself!
Aston Martin DB9 and Jaguar E-type Experience
SPECIAL CHRISTMAS PRICE: £139.00
Providing a compelling combination of the old and new, this driving experience offers you the chance to drive the iconic Jaguar E-type as well as the powerful and high-performing Aston Martin DB9 on a total of 12 laps (6 per car) around U Drive Cars’ track.
Both of these fantastic examples of British automotive engineering are icons of their respective eras and there are few cars that can deliver fun and excitement in quite the same way.
Austin Healey 3000 Experience
SPECIAL CHRISTMAS PRICE: £99.00
This British sports car may only have been in production for eight years from 1959 to 1967 but, in that short time, it established itself as one of the decade’s most iconic vehicles.
With the Austin Healey 3000 driving experience you will get to enjoy six laps of the U Drive Cars circuit and believe us when we tell you that it doesn’t just look incredible. The six-cylinder engine offers up 150bhp and a top speed of 125mph – this is one hell of a vehicle.
Classic Mini Experience
SPECIAL CHRISTMAS PRICE: £89.00
At less than £90, the Classic Mini driving experience available at U Drive Cars is an absolute must for any driving enthusiast, providing the chance to drive arguably the most recognisable of British cars.
It was The Italian Job that cemented the Mini as an iconic symbol of 1960s motoring and the combination of aesthetics and performance add up to a truly unique driving experience.
Triple Classic Car Experience
SPECIAL XMAS PRICE: £199.00
If you don’t want to limit yourself to just one classic car then the Triple Classic Car Experience is perfect. For less than £200 you can drive three of the best cars the UK ever made – the Jaguar E-type, Austin Healey 3000 and the Classic Mini.
You will have six laps in each vehicle around the U Drive Cars’ circuit accompanied by one of their instructors, experiencing the engineering excellence that went into creating all three. For a truly memorable day look no further than the Triple Classic Car Driving experience, currently available with £40 off!
All of these driving experience days include a safety briefing for each vehicle, circuit tour and if that wasn’t enough, you will also get to ride as a passenger in a high performance car.
Children, friends and family are also welcome to come along and watch at no extra charge, so what are you waiting for? Get in touch with the U Drive Cars team today and book your classic car driving experience for you or a loved one this Christmas.
