The E Type Jaguar is one of the most beautiful cars ever made, and this is your chance to drive one for a full day in Sydney. Why bother with hiring a new supercar when you can hire a classic car for a fraction of the cost - you're guaranteed to fall in love with this beautiful classic E-Type Jag.
The E Type is the ultimate sixties sports car. Still iconic after over 40 years, our E-Type (named "Penelope") was designed in a era when you could drive at 150 mph (240kph) without a seat belt and be perfectly legal! Sadly, Penelope’s days of doing ‘the ton’ are long past. But she is still a beautiful car to drive and draws admiring glances whether parked in Double Bay or cruising the Hunter Valley.
So pick a destination (Perhaps the twisty Old Pacific Highway to the Hawkesbury region? Maybe the rolling hills of the Southern Highlands?) and enjoy a day of pure motoring bliss. This is a very special car for a very special day - perfect for a wedding, birthday, anniversary and will turn any special occasion into a treasured memory.
I recommend this experience
Hi Keith, Just thought I would take the time to thank you and Maggy for the loan of Penelope yesterday. She is a beautiful lady and gave us much enjoyment on our drive down the south coast. She performed faultlessly and seemed to revel on the open road purring like a kitten as she gobbled up the road and bathed in the starring eyes of the passing traffic. I've always wanted to drive an E type and now that I have I WANT ONE, Kathleen says No, but she has agreed that we can hire Penelope again, perhaps for a weekend so could you please tell Penelope that our love affair will continue.....
Maggie & Keith, Thank you once again for your generosity in making your 1968 E Type Jaguar available on 14.010.09. The roadster version is such an icon. Penelope lived up to expectations and we noticed she attracted a lot of attention on the road. We met up with our car club members for lunch by arrangement and it took some explaining as to how we came to be arriving in such style. We are looking forward to hiring from you in the future for special occasions.
The E-Type was no museum piece, still a fire breathing, head turning rocket. Car sounded and felt fantastic - sad to return it after the two days . (tried to smuggle in in-cabin baggage but couldn't quite fit!)
Sorry for the delay in sending these photo's but we are not very technically minded. Hope you can use them anyway.
Chris was absolutely delighted with his "surprise gift" of spending the day with Penelope. He said it was the most fun (with his clothes on) he'd had in years
Maggy, We thoroughly enjoyed Penelope's company for the day. She was a pleasure to drive and never missed a beat. Thanks for asking
