In November 2015, London-based Ferrari dealership H.R. Owen Ferrari was named the Global Ferrari Dealer of the Year. The dealership beat out over 200 other Ferrari dealers to earn the distinction and were awarded with a rather impressive trophy: a 2015 Ferrari F1 car.
All Ferrari dealers were eligible to win Global Ferrari Dealer of the Year, however H.R. Owen was a “clear winner,” Ferrari says. The dealership, located on Old Brompton Road in Kensington, stood out for its good customer satisfaction record, quick servicing and knowledgeable staff.
“To become a Ferrari dealership in the first place requires exemplary service in all areas, so to be named the best of an already impeccable set of dealers is one of our proudest achievements to date,” H.R. Owen brand director James Champion said in a statement. “Because of the complex nature of the assessment process it really is a combined effort from all of our team. Everyone from the staff in the workshops, the technicians, the sales staff to the management team – everyone contributed. Many of the things we were judged on take a huge amount of effort.”
The F1 car was delivered to H.R. Owen’s showroom earlier this month – turning heads as it was loaded off of the carrier and ushered inside. The car will remain on display at H.R. Owen Ferrari in London for the time being, however the dealership plans to bring it to staff and customer parties throughout the year. It won’t be seeing any track duty, unfortunately, as this SF15-T is simply a rolling chassis.
