Five classic Father’s Day drives

If you’re looking for Father’s Day classic car hire, you've come to the right place as there's a car for everyone in this list and on the wider site. The question, once your dad is behind the wheel of a gorgeous classic car, is where to go.

Perhaps you want to see how an Aston Martin tackles Scotland's most interesting roads. Or maybe you just want to take one of the most beautiful British-made sports cars on a top-down trip around the Garden of England. No matter what you choose, hiring a classic car for Father's Day is a bound to put a smile on any dad's face.

Here are five Father’s Day drives that will delight any dad.

Delorean DMC12

Step back in time as you get behind the wheel of this genuine Delorean, made famous by the Back to the Future films. Start your adventure in Surrey and make your way along England’s south coast.

Stop in Brighton to absorb some seaside cheer and photograph the DMC12 in all its glory. Perhaps even time your drive to fit in with one of the south coast’s eighties festivals.

Mercedes-Benz 280 SL

This sleek convertible is perfect for a Father’s Day road trip. Pick your car up in Stratford Upon Avon before heading towards Birmingham to take on one of the area’s best driving roads. The unimaginatively named Midlands Tick is a 50-mile route that takes you on a scenic drive full of long straights and interesting stops.

We recommend stopping at Melton Mowbray to sample the local pork pies. The town is also famous for its Stilton cheese and the food festival that happens in October.

Triumph Spitfire

If your dream Father’s Day drive is in a sporty convertible, the Triumph Spitfire is a great choice. It’s your perfect steed for a road trip around the Garden of England. Lush green scenery, roads flanked by woodland and stunning vistas will greet you as you travel around Kent and East Sussex.

Stop for refreshments in the beautiful spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to food as there are 250 different places to eat in the local area, so do your research before you travel.

Jaguar E-Type

For those of you in the north who want to tackle some of the area’s most exciting roads, go for a quintessentially British Jaguar E-type. From a starting point in Newcastle, you have all sorts of places within easy reach. The Pennines are just on your doorstep or the Northumberland coast road is a little way to the north.

If you fancy a longer road trip, tackle the Pennines followed by the Lake District National Park. Don’t be afraid to book a few extra days off in order to make the most of this trip. You can take a look at our guide to driving the Lake District here.

Aston Martin Virage

If you want to go full luxury for your Father’s Day gift, consider taking an Aston Martin Virage around Scotland. Whether you fancy tackling the North Coast 500 or just want to go for a lazy Sunday drive, this car will put a smile on your face.

Scotland has plenty of scenic and tourist routes that are good for a casual half day in an Aston Martin but if you fancy going a little further afield, consider taking on some of the more rugged terrain in the north of the country.

These road trips don't have to take place on the day itself, you could choose a gift voucher for the dad in your life instead. This way he can choose the day and time for his classic car road trip that suits him best. Just make sure you call shotgun nice and early.
