Vintage Car Hire Specialists Add 1973 Triumph Stag To Their Collection
The car, which is revered by enthusiasts and a favourite of Top Gear presenter James May, was produced from 1970 until 1978 before becoming a collectors item.
The Vintage Classics version is a 1972/3 model with a manual gearbox and overdrive. Vintage Classics purchased the car in 2011 to add to the exclusive fleet of vehicles which includes models such as Jaguar E-Type, Audi Quattro Turbo, Austin Healey and Alfa Spider.
The Triumph Stag will be available for visitors to hire from 2012 after having undergone a number of upgrades to improve its drive, comfort and overall performance.
For a limited period the Triumph Stag (red of course!) will beoffered at £165 for a 24 hour hire. Once hired visitors can drive the car through any parts of Wiltshire’s stunning countryside.
David Andrews, chief executive of VisitWiltshire is excited about the new car: “Vintage Classics is a fantastic locally-based company offering a great concept for independent travellers. Throughout 2012 VisitWiltshire is actively encouraging visitors to see more of the county and stay for longer so this fits in perfectly. I’m even thinking of hiring one myself for the weekend! These cars are sure to attract more visitors to the county an encourage them to get out and about and see more of what Wiltshire has to offer.”
For those who require a little inspiration on where to take their classic vehicle, Vintage Classics has put together a series of sample itineraries including a taste trail. New for 2012 is the ‘National Trust Trail’ the suggested route takes in all National Trust properties in Wiltshire, covering a total of 113 miles. Each trail provides full route details and also helpful suggestions of other places of interest to visit en-route.
Vintage Classics works with a number of local accommodation providers, many of which they can arrange for a car to be delivered to ready for collection.

One such package is available through Beechfield House Hotel where a one night/day classic car package costs from £390.
