Great Escape Classic Car Hire has added one of the best British saloon cars of all time to its growing fleet of 1980s classic cars. In the 1980s the Rover SD1 Vitesse was the car every small boy wanted his dad to buy. With its elegant fastback styling and big spoilers, the Rover SD1 Vitesse had brutal performance and was Britain’s very own Q-car. It was fast, handled well and looked right in the executive car park. Now you can drive this aspiring 1980s classic car from Great Escape Classic Car Hire’s central base in Worcestershire, on the edge of the Cotswolds. The 1988 silver car with grey velour interior is one of the last Rover SD1 Vitesse cars ever made and features the high performance ‘Twin Plenum’ engine delivering 190 bhp. The car is totally standard except for a slightly larger exhaust, which enhances the burble of the lovely V8 engine. The Rover SD1 Vitesse is available to hire on a self drive basis for weekends and weekdays or on a chauffeur hire basis for weddings. It is a large 4 door saloon with rear seatbelts so ideal for sharing with family and friends. Great Escape Classic Car Hire operates the largest fleet of classic cars for rental in the UK from bases in Worcestershire, Suffolk, Dorset and Yorkshire. The company has over 50 cars for hire including cars by Jaguar, Jensen, Mercedes Benz, Morris, Porsche, Volkswagen, Alfa Romeo, Triumph, Rolls Royce and Ford. The cars cover coupes, convertibles and saloons from the 1950s to 1990s. “There is a lot of interest in the classic cars of the 1980s,” says Graham Eason of Great Escape Classic Car Hire. “I grew up with cars like the Rover Vitesse, Ford Capri and VW Golf GTI and now they are icons. “For many people who love these cars it is not practical to buy one. So hiring one for the day or weekend is a great alternative.” For more details on the Rover Vitesse for hire click here.
