Why the Vintage Car Experience is Unforgettable

Vintage cars and old models of Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Jaguar are no longer in production. But still, they continue to stand out and dominate any kind of event – especially weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties and corporate functions.

It’s true that these classic cars belong to another period of time. And that’s exactly why these cars make events unique, unforgettable, sophisticated and exclusive. Like many other beautiful and timeless things, inaccessibility or rarity increases the value and uniqueness of the experience

Having a rare and exclusive experience

Many modern European and Japanese car brands focus on economy and function. After all, the goal is to get from point A to point B while ensuring comfort for the drivers and passengers. It’s about achieving a particular goal while doing so economically (the car should be at reasonable price, fuel efficiency should be high).

But it’s entirely different with the beloved classic cars from Rolls-Royce, Jaguar and Bentley. It’s not just about getting from point A to point B. This goes beyond function. It’s mostly about the experience.

Most of us have already forgotten what it’s like to enjoy the journey itself. We often hurry to get to our destination as quick as possible. After all, the reason we’re taking out the car is to go someplace else. And we want to do it real fast without paying attention to the experience of going there.

But it’s entirely different when inside a vintage car. The experience ensures people enjoy the journey as well (not just rushing to get to the destination). It’s not just pride. The feeling of being inside a vintage car (and also the smell and level of comfort) is different.

The presence of just one vintage car completely transforms the entire event. This happens especially when creating a stunning entrance. It becomes an unforgettable moment not just to the celebrants, but also to the guests of the special occasion.

Look at the recent Royal wedding of Princes Eugenie – Royal guests arrived by classic Rolls-Royce. One of the Rolls-Royces is in fact very similar to one in our private collection. You can make such an impressive and memorable sense of arrival to your special occasion right here in Sydney

Arriving in style

Aside from the unique experience, vintage cars also set the tone of an important event. It’s called arriving in style. Coming out of an elegant and classic car is one of the best ways to start the event. This also sets the expectations of guests about what the event should feel like.

Creating a stunning entrance will be certain. For instance, just one classic car from a champagne coloured Rolls-Royce collection can immediately create that elegant atmosphere you want for your occasion. It takes just one vintage car to transform the entire event’s atmosphere and outcome.

A recent study showed that the guests remembered the sense of arrival in a fleet of vintage cars more than any other aspects of the event

What is different about Vintage Cars

Why do vintage cars project that kind of effect? First, these cars clearly signal craftsmanship. Back then, production processes were more manual. The panels and details were made by craftsmen with decades of experience. As a result, these cars are not just vehicles. These are excellent works of art. Today , the famous Rolls-Royce emblem –‘ the silver lady ‘ continues to be handmade

Earlier we mentioned about the focus on function of the modern cars (economic production, getting from point A to point B). In addition, there are constraints in today’s car design. Engineers and designers have to consider aerodynamics and several safety factors before finalising the design.

In contrast, the designs of classic cars reflect the trends and mood of the time. It only takes a single glance to feel that the car was designed for the 1960s. Forget about aerodynamics. The car is indeed a part of the 1960s history. The curves of the car and even how the wheels look tell a lot about the era when the car was made.

In part, it is nostalgia. It’s one reason many individuals and couples choose vintage cars for their anniversaries and other events.  Although vintage cars are now available for hire, they’re still rare and provide the feeling of exclusivity. After all, maintaining the neat condition of this type of car requires significant financial and time investments. Also, the price point still seems to be at the high end. The great thing about it is it provides a unique and unforgettable experience both to the celebrants and the guests. And many people are willing to invest more to gain that rare experience.

It starts from when the celebrants come out of the vintage car. Whether it’s a classic Bentley, Jaguar or a Rolls-Royce, these cars never fail to amaze and impress people. So if you’re thinking of a way to make your event unforgettable, that’s one way to do it.

The journey, destination and personalisation

Most of us have already forgotten what it’s like to enjoy the journey itself. We often hurry to get to our destination as quick as possible. After all, the reason we’re taking out the car is to go someplace else. And we want to do it real fast without paying attention to the experience of going there.

But it’s entirely different when inside a vintage car. The experience makes people enjoy the journey as well (not just rushing to get to the destination). It’s not just pride. The feeling of being inside a vintage car (and also the smell and level of comfort) is just different.

It’s true that arriving in style (the destination) is one of the highlights of hiring a vintage car. But the journey could be really fulfilling as well. It won’t just be a glamorous arrival. The entire experience will also be glamorous and unforgettable.

Having a vintage car for your event also adds a high level of personalisation. After all, it’s a rare and exclusive experience. To make something personal, there must be something different in it. In the case of events, this can be achieved by choosing the most appropriate vintage car that best reflects your values, event theme and lifestyle.

For example, clients choose among three classic cars with ivory, two tone silver and champagne colours and styles. Their choices depend on their preferred colours or on which one suits their wedding or other event. The classic car itself provides personalisation to the occasion. The level of personalisation even gets higher because of variety.

Let’s always remember. A celebration is always personal. It’s like a part of ourselves that will remain for a long time. And yes, your guests will look up to you and become an authentic part of your celebration. It’s a small detail. But it can bring your event to another level.

Why the vintage car experience is unforgettable

Yes, it’s only a one-time event. But the memories will last forever. That’s why many people are willing to invest in this one-time event. They want to make it the best one both for themselves and their guests.

Years will go by but you will still remember the exact feeling you had when you’re inside a classic car. For certain you’ll also remember the smiling faces as you go out of the car to meet and greet your guests. You can relive that experience anytime you wish to. It’s a lifetime investment to an amazing experience.
