Classic car hire has a new wave of retro cool to choose from, courtesy of the decade that brought us the Spice girls and Brit pop.
The 1990’s is a decade back in fashion and 30 years ago, BMW released its third generation of its 3-series model. Often referred to as modern classics, cars of this era have been slowly creeping into classic car hire fleets across the country.
When it comes to classic car hire, many will think of the cars such as the Morgan, the E-Type Jaguar or even a triumph. True classics though they are, many forget that BMW does have a great selection of modern classics which are equally as fun to drive and possess lots of retro cool appeal. The ultra reliable German engines are smooth as silk too, capable of churning many miles in that long driving weekend away.
The BMW 3 series is a compact executive car that comes in many guises. The one that stands out from the crowd is the convertible. The design features pillar-less doors, a fully automatic folding hood and room enough for 4. When that roof is down, the side profile of this car is timeless. If you want to catch some rays on a sunny day and have enough room for your friends too, this is the car to choose from our classic car hire fleet.
This 3 series convertible has everything you’d expect from a modern classic. The full tan leather interior seats 4 people comfortably and the speaker system is powerful enough to be heard even when the roof is down. Fitted with M-Performance trim and body styling, all body coloured in Fern green, it looks regal yet sporty. The mohair hood is factory colour coded too, above the standard black hood that would have been fitted. If the weather is to hot, then the hood can be quickly and easily raised and the ice cold air conditioning can be turned on. Having had a recent mechanical overhaul, the car boasts new brakes, tyres and suspension parts all round.
The classic car hire industry will have to move with the times in order to stay appealing to the new generation of motorists looking for that nostalgic adventure. BMW has a great selection of cars from its back catalogue and already prices are on the rise for the 3 series. The E30 models are climbing fast and the E36 models from the 90’s are following suit. Not before long, cars in great condition will be held onto.
