We receive a surprisingly large number of enquiries from people wishing to hire sports and other high-performance cars instead of the usual fleet Avengers and Marinas. To cater for such people Hertz introduced, some time ago, a special service including MG-Bs, Jaguar XJ6s and the like. Unfortunately they do not seem to have told all their offices about it for one branch denied all knowledge of such a system to a reader recently.
Thus it is probably better to go to an outfit like Goodspeed Ltd. of 59 Eccleston Square Mews, London, SW1, which is a consortium of three London hire firms who have just started hiring out Alfa 1750s, BMW 2002s, Jaguar E-types and MG-Bs. The BMW and MG-B work out at £10 a day unlimited mileage, the Alfa is £1 more and the Jaguar E is £20. The conditions of hire include a £50 deposit and drivers must be over 25 and have at least five year’s experience.
