Jaguar Offers Public a Chance to Drive Heritage Cars

Forget your typical arrive-and-drive performance driving school. Jaguar is launching a Heritage Driving Experience that will allow participants to get behind the wheel of classics like the C-Type, D-Type, and E-Type.

Research

The program, which launches in November, offers three unique driving experiences with the most basic starting at around $150. All drives take place at Jaguar's 200-acre testing facility in Warwickshire, England. Many of the available cars were recently purchased from a private collector and will be driven for the first time by the public. 1961-jaguar-e-type-convertible-front-side-view© Provided by MotorTrend 1961-jaguar-e-type-convertible-front-side-view

Buyers can choose the Jaguar Experience, which ranges in price from around $152 to $400. Participants can sit in the passenger seat or drive alongside a professional in a wide variety of heritage models like the XK150, Mark 2 saloon, or Series 1 and 3 E-Type. The heritage cars can be taken out on the course with their modern counterparts like the F-Type.

The Le Mans Experience, which starts at around $1200, is a half-day experience that allows drivers to head out in historic racing cars like the C-Type, D-Type, XKSS, and F-Type R. Those who want a full day of action on the course will want to opt for the $3200 Grace and Pace event where they can drive the full gamut of vehicles from post-war racers to classic Jag sedans to creations from Jaguar's Special Operations division.

Jaguar is particularly gung-ho when it comes to heritage vehicles, as evidenced in 2010 during the brand's 75th anniversary. A convoy of 75 heritage Jags made a 70-mile trek from London as part of one of the many celebrations of the historic milestone. Many of the same models will be at the driving school.
