Here Comes The Vintage Line Up

Mar 15, 2017

Classic, elegant and exotic - these traits make vintage vehicles a sought-after, yet hard to reach for car pundits. Despite the fact that  modern cars are faster and convenient  vintage models never fail to take hold of any car enthusiast’s heart. Just as old fossils are valued by archaeologists, and primitive tribes are studied by anthropologists, classic rides that were born in the analogue era are treasured by those who own and dream of it.

Whether you wish to rent a classic car is to experience a unique travel, to sentimentally celebrate  your wedding anniversary, to reminisce your nostalgic childhood in your dad’s garage, or to attend or organize a vintage-themed event,  Europe Luxury Car Hire provides you the opportunity of classic car rental in Europe -  to drive for as long as you wish one of the seven timeless models that follow.

1. 1959 Bentley S1 -  Timeless Yet Contemporary

Classic 1959 Bentley S1 Rental -  Timeless Yet Contemporary

Make heads turn when you roll with a Bentley S1, elegant and timeless in its saloon form. Its rare and exclusive reputation makes it a popular babe amoung collectors. Manufactured from 1955-1959, the S1 is a luxury car based on the former’s Silver Cloud I model. The only difference between these twin models is the badging and radiator design. Bentley S1 is the last vehicle to use the engines that Rolls Royce designed in the 1920s. Specifications include straight-6 engine, 4.5 in stroke, 93.7 in bore, 6.6:1 compression ratio, 4-speed automatic transmission with a 4-speed manual option, 123-inch or 127-inch wheelbase, and 190 km/h maximum speed.

2. 1967 Jaguar E-Type -  The Movie Star

Classic 1967 Jaguar E-Type Rental -  The Movie Star

Whether casually used by a character or throttled in car chase scenes, Jaguar E-types have been featured in countless movies and TV shows since their construction in the early 1960s. A customized flag-designed 1967 model was featured with Beyonce in Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002). More than its showbiz appearances though, what makes it oozing is its design, a beautifully-styled 2-door, 2-seater convertible body type powered by a rear-wheel drive, manual 4-speed gear and a manufacturer-declared top speed of 240 km/h.

3. 1960 Corvette C1 -  America’s Sports Cars Granddad

Classic 1960 Corvette C1 Rental  -  America’s Sports Cars Granddad

Get flashy as you hit the road on a Corvette C1 with quad headlights, wrap-around windshield and convertible body style that runs up to 180 km/h.  The 1960 C1 ‘Vette belongs to the first generation of sports car in USA, valued as an authoritative, elegant and eager version of its original 1953 model which was far from luxurious. With engines that range up to 315 horsepower, this comfortable touring car has a transmission standard of a 3-speed close-ratio Synchro-Mesh, although back then, a 4-speed and automatic powerglide were alternatives.

4. 1959 Mercedes 190SL - A Gran Turismo Favorito

Classic 1959 Mercedes 190SL Rental - A Gran Turismo Favorito

For what it is, this good-looking and beautifully made roadster remains highly priced since its conception. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 1955, the 190 SL convertible stands out for its significantly less aggressive pace as compared to its elder brother, the sporty 300 SL. European car enthusiasts usually turn to 190 SL for its exceptional road handling. It was designed as a luxurious touring car with a sporty touch meant for long distance driving, characterized with  2-door roadster body type, a rear-wheel drive, manual 4-speed gearbox and a factory-declared maximum speed of 180 km/h. 

5. 1961 Jaguar XK150 - The Rare Roadster Jewel

Classic 1961 Jaguar XK150 Rental - The Rare Roadster Jewel

Gracefully aging in a consistently comfortable, fast and excellent road manners is this Jaguar roadster. Produced in 1961 as the third and last in its XK family, with 120 and 140 models being the elders, the XK 150 is a rare collectible. Its vintage design is surely tempting for classic car enthusiasts: open two seater, 2-door roadster body type, rear-wheel drive, with manual transmission ranging from 3 to 4-speed or automatic 3-speed gearbox, and a top speed of 212 km/h.

6. 1988 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet - A Vintage and Speed Icon

Classic 1988 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 Cabriolet Rental - A Vintage and Speed Icon

Indulge in a cracking V8 engine as you drive the youngest yet most furious classic among this list, the Ferrari Mondial Mondial 3.2, the final model for the Mondial series. First showcased at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1985, Mondial 3.2 was manufactured between 1985-1988 with only 810 released units, most of which were imported to the United States and Canada. Only diligent vehicle enthusiasts get the chance to experience this 2-door convertible at a full-throttle of 220 km/h while enjoying the elegant and comfortable interior.

7. 1974 Lamborghini Urraco PS250 S -  Exotic, Almost Out Of Reach

Classic 1974 Lamborghini Urraco PS250 S Rental -  Exotic Supercar

This Lamborghini junior supercar offers a sweet drive with its V8 engine making an unmistakable noise, and its spacious room for two (although the 4-seater can be maximized at a push). Full of charm to seduce vintage aficionados, this 2+2 coupe sports car designed by renowned Marcello Gandini was introduced at the 1970 Turin Auto Show. Treat yourself to a drive of a lifetime with one out of the limited units (710 to be exact) released in the market.
