Fen End, UK – 4 June 2015. The new Land Rover Heritage Driving Experience is now fully open at the company’s customer test facility in Fen End, West Midlands.
For the first time, customers can experience Land Rover’s rich heritage through driving vehicles from the Series I that started the legend in 1948, to famous military vehicles such as the 101 Forward Control transporter and the iconic classic Range Rover on and off-road at a new customer facility in the heart of the UK.
A variety of packages will be available allowing visitors to focus on a particular decade or era, or to journey through Land Rover’s heritage, right up to the present day line-up. Professional instructors will be on hand to provide direction, interesting facts and anecdotes to ensure visitors get the most pleasure and excitement from their time on the circuit or on the new off-road track. Customers will also have the opportunity to view stunning vehicle exhibits in detail and browse a fully stocked merchandise outlet.
Land Rover packages start at £40 for passenger rides with an expert Land Rover Experience instructor. Example Land Rover Heritage Experience packages include:
The Series I, II and III Vs Modern Defender (£85)
Drive a Series I, II or III, followed by today’s vehicle they became – the Defender. See how Land Rover’s adventurous DNA has passed from generation to generation, and how these classic machines took on the world’s toughest terrains.
Land Rover Historic Drives (£90)
The opportunity to drive the vehicles that started the legend, both on and off-road, choose from an original Series Land Rover, a classic Range Rover or a more unusual creation – the 101 Forward Control – a transporter designed for the British Army.
Range Rover Then & Now (£125)
Compare the classic Range Rover with its 2015 off-spring, both on and off-road. Time behind the wheel includes a track induction for a higher speed experience, and time off-road putting both cars through their all-terrain paces.
