Jaguar Land Rover fans can now drive some of the marque’s most classic vehicles. The automaker just launched a classic driving experience that will be held at Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire, UK. For a price, customers are eligible to spend the whole day test-driving classic models including the Jaguar E-Type, Land Rover Series I, and even their most famous 4x4s. Other models include the Range Rover Classic, Series I and Series III (introduced in 1971)
But that is not all. There will also be a selection of sportier cars from their sister company, Jaguar, such as the XK150 from the late 1950s, the Series I E-Type from the 1960s, a Series III E-Type from the 70s and another famous model, the Mk2.
To take part in this event, customers will have to be willing to spend £495 (around $647). As mentioned earlier, this will happen in and around Eastnor Castle estate, which is also where the automaker develops their modern off-roaders. Customers will be able to experience driving the company’s current models on the dirt tracks and the challenging slopes around the estate as well. While the company is allowing the public to drive their heritage models on off-road courses, Jaguar vehicles will only be allowed on metalled roads.
Jaguar Land Rover Classic director, Tim Hannig, said that both brands have built some of the most beautiful and iconic British cars ever. He added that their current and more modern vehicles do retain the brand’s DNA, but they want the people to experience the heritage of these cars, and how the story developed.
Moreover, the reason why the event will take place in Eastnor is because that place has a significance to the company. And for them, it is a privilege to be able to bring their most legendary cars to such an important place. It is like taking a trip back in time as well as imbibing an experience only Jaguar Land Rover can offer.
We do not know yet if Jaguar Land Rover plans on continuing this or launching this in other places in the succeeding years, so if it has been your dream to drive one of these classic cars in a beautiful place as if you had been teleported back in the 60s, don’t miss the chance!

For £495, not only will you get to experience driving classic Jaguars and Land Rovers around the Eastnor Estate, this full day experience will also include welcome drinks, lunch, and refreshments for the whole day.
