Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience - A Rare Chance Indeed

More often than not, we, the automotive journalist folks, are busy getting behind the wheels of the fanciest cars and even not really the fancy ones. However, if I were to be honest, it is rare for even us to get our hands on the heritage variety. Not any more though, thanks to the Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience. Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations announced the launch of the Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience yesterday, which present participants with the chance to drive cars like the Le Mans-racing legend Jaguar D-type, legendary E-type and Jaguar's most potent sports car ever, the F-TYPE R Coupe.
People will be able to avail the myriad options under the experience from November, 2014 at a 200-acre testing facility, Fen End, in Warwickshire. Interestingly, several cars in the collection will be driven by members of the public for the very first time, having been prepared for high octane test action following Jaguar's recent purchase of over 500 outstanding British heritage cars from a private collector.
Here are a few examples of the packages on offer
Jaguar Experience (£95 - £250) - From passenger rides to driving alongside a professional, 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. Alternatively, you can also choose to drive heritage cars alongside their modern counterparts, such as an E-type with a F-TYPE.

Le Mans Experience (£750) - This one includes drives in the C- and D-types, the XKSS and F-TYPE R Coupe, for half a day. Oh, also, there's lunch.

Grace and Pace Experience (£2,000) - This one is perhaps the best, and also the most expensive, out of the lot. From post-war racers to sports saloons, coupes, roadsters and much more, including the new XFR and F-TYPE R Coupe models, the Grace and Pace experience is all about a full day of driving the legends. Furthermore, it will also feature opportunities to drive Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations cars. If you still care about lunch while spending a day amongst these legends, there are chauffeur-driven transfers in classic Jaguar saloons to a lunch venue.
