Jaguar heritage driving experience

Your chance to drive classics including a rare D-type from Jaguar’s unique collection.

For the first time, Jaguar fans from all over the world are to have the opportunity to drive models from Jaguar’s heritage collection.

Jaguar D-type

Based at Jaguar’s 200-acre test facility in Warwickshire, near the home of Jaguar Land Rover in the West Midlands,  a range of experiences will be available.

From one-hour drives to half-day Le Mans 24 Hours race-themed specials and a full-hospitality ‘Grace and Pace’ driving programme, they will be priced from £95-£2,000.

Example packages include:

Jaguar Experience (ranging from £95-£250) – from passenger rides to driving alongside a seasoned professional (including some recognisable faces from the world of motorsport), visitors can choose from individual models – including an XK150 or Mark 2 saloon – or selected pairings such as the Series 1 and Series 3 E-type. There’s also the option to drive heritage cars alongside their modern counterparts, such as an E-type with a factory-fresh F-TYPE.

Le Mans Experience (£750) – re-live the experiences of legends such as Mike Hawthorn and Duncan Hamilton for half a day, with drives in the iconic C and D-types that dominated the world famous 24-hour endurance race in the 1950s. This package will also feature drives in the XKSS and F-TYPE R Coupé, and includes lunch.

Grace and Pace Experience (£2,000) – a full day of driving Jaguar Heritage legends, from post-war racers to sports saloons, coupés, roadsters and much more, including the new XFR and F-TYPE R Coupé models. The Grace and Pace day will also feature opportunities to drive creations from the company’s Special Operations division, and includes chauffeur-driven transfers in classic Jaguar saloons to a lunch venue.
