British Ferrari dealer Meridien Modena has triumphed in the Ferrari Showroom of the Year 2014 competition.
The Lyndhurst, Hampshire dealer beat every other Ferrari dealer in the world, including 11 of Ferrari’s 12-strong UK sales centre network – and has scoped a Ferrari 458 Italia engine for its efforts!
The prize comes after Meridien Modena upgraded in 2012 with a new showroom, waiting room, handover bay and Atelier room.
The latter mimics Ferraris’ Modena Atelier personalisation suite and displays many of the bespoke options lucky owners can select for their new Ferraris.
Francesco Balli, regional manager for Ferrari North Europe, said: “It is fantastic to see a dealership in the UK recognised as the best in the world, and it is a testament to the strength of the partnership between Meridien Modena and Ferrari that their investment in renovating such an iconic location has been recognised.
“We look forward to seeing the 458 Italia engine on display here in Lyndhurst as I know we have many enthusiastic clients in the area who will be proud of the dealer’s achievements.”
Meridien Modena first opened its doors at Lyndhurst in 1988 and won the Ferrari franchise in 2000. Today, 30 people work there – including seven Ferrari factory-trained technicians and three apprentices from the Ferrari North Europe Apprentice Programme.
