Top 5 Maintenance Tips for Classic Sports Cars in the UK

Welcome to Sports Car Hire, the UK's premier provider of sports car and supercar rentals. Our extensive collection features renowned brands and models that excite car enthusiasts and cater to any luxury event. Today, we're sharing our top five tips for maintaining classic sports cars, ensuring they remain in pristine condition for your pleasure and our fleet.

1. Regular Servicing

To keep your classic sports car in top shape, regular servicing is essential. Scheduled maintenance not only ensures the longevity of your vehicle but also guarantees a smooth and safe driving experience. At Sports Car Hire, we recommend servicing your car at a trusted garage familiar with classic models like the Jaguar E-Type, Aston Martin DB5, and Ferrari 250 GTO.

2. Proper Storage

Storing your classic sports car properly is crucial, especially in the UK's variable climate. Use a climate-controlled garage to prevent moisture damage and corrosion. Additionally, utilise a high-quality car cover to protect your vehicle from dust and scratches. Our fleet, including luxury models like Rolls Royce and Bentley, is stored in optimal conditions to ensure they remain immaculate for your special events.

3. Fuel and Fluids

Regularly checking and replacing fluids like oil, coolant, and brake fluid is vital for the health of your classic sports car. Using high-quality, manufacturer-recommended fluids can prevent engine wear and enhance performance. Always ensure your car has fresh fuel to avoid degradation, which is especially important for cars in storage. This practice helps maintain the reliability of our luxurious vehicles, from Mercedes to the elegant Lexus.

4. Tyre Maintenance

Tyres are the only contact point between your car and the road, making their maintenance crucial. Regularly inspect your tyres for wear and tear, and ensure they are inflated to the recommended pressure. Proper tyre maintenance guarantees better handling and safety, which is why we diligently check the tyres on all our vehicles, including our range of stretch limousines like the Hummer and Chrysler.

5. Detailed Cleaning

Regular detailed cleaning is essential to preserve the aesthetic appeal of your classic sports car. Use specialised cleaning products to avoid damaging the paintwork and interior materials. At Sports Car Hire, our vehicles, including the luxurious Maybach and sporty G Wagon, receive meticulous cleaning to ensure they look their best for any event, from weddings to corporate events.
