It shows that Jaguars are the most popular marque for classic car rental in the UK. 27% of the classic cars available to hire in this country were made at Browns Lane and, not surprisingly, the E-Type is the most sought-after classic for hire.

I reviewed the choice of classic cars available to hire and ran an on-line poll to find the most popular classic car. Jaguars and E-Types topped the list.

The research was conducted to help me choose our next car to buy. We now have an E-Type V12 Convertible and a 1988 XJS V12 Convertible, the only one of its type in the UK.

We try to offer cars that are a little different. So we looked at the Jaguar range and decided that the XJS would be the perfect complement to an E-Type.

I think that the XJS is on the cusp of a big renaissance because people remember it from their childhoods. It’s a car many people have always wanted. I’ve seen exactly the same thing happen with our Alfa and Jensen. The V12 convertible is particularly desirable – it is a beautiful, hand built, effortlessly smooth grand tourer – perfect for cruising the Cotswolds!

The XJS V12 Convertible is available for daily, weekend and weekly hire from Great Escape’s central base just south of Junction 3 of the M42. Hire includes 24 hours use, unlimited mileage, insurance, breakdown cover, storage of your car, carbon offsetting and a free trip planning service. 24 hours hire costs £195 and 48 hour weekend hire costs £325.

Our website at includes lots of information and images of the cars and full online booking, including the option to reserve a car for 48 hours without commitment.
