What would you like to take for a spin?

The Premium Collection features some slightly rarer cars and some very “Special Editions” as well as an Austin Seven which is over 80 years old. Don’t worry…its very easy to drive. You can also drive a genuine Morris “Minor Million”: one of 360 cars made in glorious pink colour to celebrate the production of a million Minors. Maybe you’d like to take one of the last MGB’s or Triumph sports cars for a drive?

Scroll down the page and book your trip “Down Memory Lane!”

You can drive one car from the Premium Collection for £60 with additional cars costing £45 each. Simply browse the cars below and decide how many you want to drive. If you want to drive 2 or 3 cars from different collections please purchase the bundle : “Any Two Cars” or “Any Three Cars”. You can confirm exactly which cars you would like to drive when you redeem your voucher.

 

Austin Seven Ruby Saloon

Part of the Premium Collection

1 of 12

  • Year: 1937
  • Age: 84 years
  • Place of first registration: Scotland
  • Facts: Completely rebuilt and restored. This is a lovely little car.
  • We Love: Everything is in the right place and it’s just sweet!
  • Not so good: Slow, noisy, cramped …but much better than a motor-bike and sidecar!

Sunbeam Rapier Convertible

Part of the Premium Collection

2 of 12

  • Year: 1960
  • Age: 61 years
  • Place of first registration: Greenock, Scotland
  • Facts: A lovely example of Rootes’ stylish four seater drop top.
  • We Love: Just about everything about this car. The American but reasonably subdued styling, the slightly crazy interior trim and the traditional wooden dashboard.
  • Not so good: Like all cars of this era suffered from terrible corrosion so only a tiny number survived. The hood is tricky to operate and not the most weatherproof if the family got caught in a storm.

Morris Minor Million

Part of the Premium Collection

3 of 12

  • Year: 1961
  • Age: 60 years
  • Place of first registration: Nelson, Lancashire
  • Facts: One of the 350 special edition Minor Millions built to celebrate the millionth Morris Minor. This car was sent to J S Horsfall Ltd in Nelson Lancashire as every Morris Dealership received one. This was car number 191. Less than 60 Minor Millions survive in 2021 when it celebrates its 60th birthday.
  • We Love: The colour, the interior and everything about it.
  • Not so good: Underneath it just a standard Minor, these days it would probably have had a tuned engine.

Part of the Premium Collection

4 of 12

  • Year: 1963
  • Age: 58 years
  • Place of first registration: Scotland
  • Facts: An original Mk 1 Midget. A taste of the 60’s.
  • We Love: Light, agile, low and pretty.
  • Not so good: Very basic, bumpy and noisy. Hood is hopeless!

Austin 1300GT

Part of the Premium Collection

5 of 12

  • Year: 1971
  • Age: 50 years
  • Place of first registration: Lancashire
  • Facts: Having only done 32,000 miles in half a century, this car has been sympathetically restored to a high standard.
  • We Love: The bold external colours, the vinyl roof and the sporty steering wheel and interior.
  • Not so good: The 1300 was by this stage getting old and we all hoped the Allegro was the answer. In retrospect the 1300GT was a rather good car.

Part of the Premium Collection

6 of 12

  • Year: 1974
  • Age: 47 years
  • Place of first registration: Leeds
  • Facts: Completely restored some years ago. Originally automatic now fitted with a manual gearbox.
  • We Love: One of the last 1300s every made. Great colour, comfy inside.

Austin Allegro

Part of the Premium Collection

7 of 12

  • Year: 1980
  • Age: 41 years
  • Place of first registration: Coventry
  • Facts: Only 38,000 miles in 41 years. The colour is Applejack Green!
  • We Love: The colour which helps to disguise the dumpy shape
  • Not so good: Its still an Allegro and the Escort Mk 3 and Astra made it look hopelessly old. Sales compared to the previous Austin 1100 were dismal. Drive it and see what you think!

MGB GT

Part of the Premium Collection

9 of 12

  • Year: 1981
  • Age: 40 years
  • Place of first registration: Staffordshire

  • Not so good: The plastic bumpers required to satisfy the American safety legislation.

Mini “Italian Job” Special Edition

Part of the Premium Collection

10 of 12

  • Year: 1993
  • Age: 28 years
  • Place of first registration: Oxfordshire
  • Facts: The Mini was always a good subject for “Special Editions” and as 36 Minis were used in the making of the original “Italian Job” film, an “Italian Job” special was always on the cards. Surprisingly, it was more than 20 years after the film that one finally appeared in 1992.
  • We Love: Everything about it
  • Not so good: “You were only supposed to blow the bl---y doors off!”

  • Facts: One of the last Minis ever made this car shouts British with its Union Jack roof.

  • Not so good: Still only has a four speed gearbox and although the handling is first class the ride is bumpy at best.
