London, Wednesday 9 March. There is only one way to see the major stars of the Geneva motor show without heading out to Switzerland – pay a visit to your local H.R. Owen showroom.

H.R. Owen is the only dealership group in the UK that will play host to arguably all of the major automotive stars of the famous international motor show, including the biggest of them all – the Bugatti Chiron.

The Chiron, officially the world’s fastest, most powerful and most exclusive car, will only be available to buy in one place in the UK – at H.R. Owen’s Berkeley Square showroom in Mayfair. The first deliveries are not due until the end of this year but it is due to make at least one appearance at the famous showroom before the first car heads out to its first new owners.

As well as the Chiron, the Aston Martin DB11, 2017 Bentley Mulsanne, Rolls-Royce Black Badge and Maserati’s first SUV, the Levante, all made their global debuts at the Geneva motor show this month. Buyers and car fans alike will not have long to wait until they have a chance to get up close to the cars as they too appear at H.R. Owen showrooms in the coming months.

The Levante will be a central figure in the launch of H.R. Owen’s latest showroom, H.R. Owen Maserati Manchester South, which is set to launch in May. The SUV will arrive in the in H.R. Owen showrooms later this summer and will feature alongside the rest of Maserati’s range, including the Quattroporte and the Ghibli saloon.

Customers interested in the new Ferrari GTC4Lusso will be able to head to their local H.R. Owen Ferrari dealer to see the new four-seat, four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering shooting brake coupe that combines practicality with the evocative performance that the brand is so well known for. That will be in showrooms as of September this year.

Towards the fourth quarter of 2016, deliveries of the new Aston Martin DB11, the most powerful and most efficient Aston Martin in the company’s history, will start. Those interested in the car can head to H.R. Owen now to place their order for the 5.2-litre V12-powered sporting GT, and it will be heading to the showroom as early as August.

Bentley had a strong presence at Geneva, too, and the 2017 Bentley Mulsanne featuring at the international show. It is one of a selection of cars appearing in H.R. Owen from September.  Another of the Geneva stars that will be in H.R. Owen showrooms from September is the ultra luxurious Rolls-Royce Black Badge. The Rolls-Royce Black Badge comes with an increase in power, with the Ghost getting a boost of 40hp to 603hp, and a cabin that shows off the best of Rolls-Royce bespoke materials and options.

Tom King, H.R. Owen’s marketing director said: “The 2016 Geneva motor show was an fabulously exciting occasion this year, with a huge array of new and exciting models on display. We are proud to be the only dealership group in the UK where you will be able to see and buy all of these exotic and exclusive cars, cementing our position as the best luxury car dealer in the UK.

The Bugatti Chiron is a particular highlight, and we are delighted to be the only place in the UK that will be able to show and sell this exceptional car. There is no better place for such an important and momentous car than our historic Jack Barclay showroom in Berkeley Square.”
