Fiat 124 Sport Spider

Fiat 124 Sport Spider

The Fiat 124 Sport Spider was designed by Pininfarina and styled in-house by Tom Tjaarda. The 124 Sport Spider, 124 Sport Coupé and 124 sedan share much of their running gear. The Sports Spider uses a shorter platform along with a shorter wheelbase, and in contrast to the Pinifarina styled and manufactured spider, Fiat designed and manufactured the coupé in-house. 
Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk 1

Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk 1

Recently added to the HERO Fleet at the start of 2019 is our 1983 Golf GTI Mk1, this example being presented in Mars Red. This iconic vehicle is now classed as a modern classic and will no doubt bring back memories to lots of people from their formative years. Although lots of cars came after the GTI this is the one that started a new sector in the automotive history and is still thought to be the original “Hot Hatch”. This car is sure to be fun, comfortable and a great introduction to the sport and events.
MG B Roadster - 1974

MG B Roadster - 1974

A recent addition to the Arrive & Drive fleet is this 1974 MG B Roadster. A factory hard top is fitted as are Minilite wheels which do help in resisting punctures, couple this with an engine and drivetrain that are tuned for reliability on endurance events and you have a very easy to drive vehicle that can be incredibly competitive. The MG B is probably one of the most successful vehicles in historic motor sport.

The 16v Integrale was developed for rallying, introduced at the 1989 Geneva Motor Show, and made a winning debut on the 1989 San Remo Rally. It featured a raised centre of the bonnet to accommodate the new 16 valve engine, as well as wider wheels and tyres and new identity badges front and rear. The torque split was changed to 47% front and 53% rear. 
Mini Cooper - 1968 (RHD)

Mini Cooper - 1968 (RHD)

Mini Cooper the latest sporty addition to the HERO-ERA Arrive Drive fleet. The automotive legend that is the Mini Cooper has finally joined the HERO-ERA Arrive and Drive fleet. The little ‘buzz box’ that burst onto the competition scene after the ingenious engineer John Cooper convinced designer Sir Alec Issigonis and BMC that the revolutionary car could go from shopping car to competition car on the track, ensures the fleet now has a choice of car for all tastes and terrain.
