Napier Classic Cars is not so much a company as some good friends working together. We share a passion for vintage and classic cars and are involved in professional driving for tours, weddings and events in the Hawkes Bay area. We decided it would be a more appealing proposition and more fun for us to work together, offering our classic cars under a single banner. So, over dinner one evening mid 2015, Napier Classic Cars was born.
Napier and the wider Hawkes Bay area that includes the city of Hastings and the gorgeous village of Havelock North is an awesome tourist destination as it benefits from a wonderful Mediterranean-type climate (think of the South of France, Spain or Italy) and is as a result a real ‘fruit bowl’ producing a wide range of fruit including apples, apricots, kiwi fruit and all manner of citrus fruit in addition to figs, olives and of course grapes.
Hawkes Bay is an up and coming wine producing area that is making it’s mark on the world stage having more than 30 wineries within a few miles of the tourist centre of Napier.
Then there is the beautiful city of Napier itself – an authentic Art Deco city which was created in the aftermath of a catastrophic earthquake in 1931 that totally destroyed the old city.
All this and more including stunning scenery, a genuinely eccentric car museum and even a chocolate factory can be enjoyed in the period luxury and comfort of our stunning classic cars. Why squeeze onto a crowded tour bus where you are herded around to a tight schedule, when you can have your own private chauffeur taking you where you want to go at your own pace?
Do come to Napier and give us a call; we are looking forward to showing you some of the wonderful sights our stunning little corner of New Zealand has to offer. You won’t be sorry.
