Ferrari announced that the recently renovated Official Ferrari Dealer for the South of England, Meridien Modena, has won the Showroom of the Year at Ferrari’s Annual Dealer Conference held at the Finali Mondiali at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi. In recognition of this outstanding achievement in a competition amongst all Official Ferrari Dealers worldwide, Meridien Modena were presented with an engine from a 458 Italia which won the International Engine of the Year Award in 2011, 2012 and 2014.
Meridien Modena’s showroom was renovated in 2012 to showcase the Prancing Horse’s latest Corporate Identity which was first introduced in 2010 and has now been rolled out across the dealer network in all markets.
Francesco Balli, Regional Manager for Ferrari North Europe, commented: “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. Ferrari is committed to providing the highest level of customer care and 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.”
The new state of the art showroom also features a brand new waiting room, dedicated handover bay, and a fully-detailed “Atelier”. The Atelier is modelled on a facility at the factory in Maranello, where customers can chose from a range of options to personalise their new Ferrari. The direct translation of ‘Atelier’ from french origin is ‘Artists Workshop’. Meridien Modena also has a fully-equipped Official Ferrari Service Centre and is one of the UK’s leading outlets for Ferrari Approved, fully-inspected Ferrari cars which are provided with a 2 year warranty, and can be warranted up to the car’s 12th birthday from the date of first registration.
