Classics calling… a blast from the past beating EV driving experiences - News

  • Recent interest in classic car experiences proving more popular than electric vehicle experiences, reports
  • Website traffic for classic cars stronger than that for Tesla EV
  • Iconic models such as the AC Cobra, Ford GT, Jaguar E-Type and Mini Cooper S can be driven at locations across the UK

“So much so that there has recently been a spike in interest in classic car experiences, which are proving to be more desirable than a high powered blast on the circuit with an all electric Tesla.”

Models such as the Ford Escort Mk 1 have even fetched more than £200,000 at recent auctions, making a driving experience an attractive, and realistic, alternative to enjoy nostalgic motoring.

Alex added: “It would appear that as the future of driving is shifting drastically to electric vehicles for everyday driving, classic cars are more than holding their own on the track.

“These classic car experiences may be the only way many of us can enjoy driving in its purest form in the future, and for a much more affordable price.”

Classic car experiences with offer a wide variety of classic cars to drive, from the iconic Mini Cooper S to a boastful Ford Mustang GT500. There’s also the opportunity to enjoy a classic for even longer, sometimes a whole day, with a road tour experience
