Rolls-Royce is the world’s most exclusive car brand and so naturally all their showrooms around the world are like high-end galleries, displaying the latest creations of the British manufacturer in artful style. With the launch of the new Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London Stansted, though, P&A Wood takes thing to a whole new level.
Launched to much pomp and circumstance, the new Rolls-Royce Showroom in Essex is the result of a £2.5 million investment by RR dealer and top restorer P&A Wood. The facility includes an all-new glass-fronted space for the showroom and a Bespoke lounge equipped with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment, as well as an accessories shop.
The opening of the showroom also marked the 50th anniversary of P&A Wood, which was celebrated with a large display of old models meticulously restored by the firm and the latest modern models including the Wraith. Over 2,000 guests were also treated to fly-pasts, craftsmanship displays and tours of P&A Wood’s world-renowned pre-war and post-war car restoration workshops. There was also a special ribbon cutting ceremony in which famous broadcaster Chris Evans joined Paul and Andy Wood.
“The investment P&A Wood has made in this remarkable facility represents a new and exciting chapter for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London Stansted. The new showroom and adjacent coachworks and restoration workshops are shining examples of our dealer’s commitment to providing an exceptional level of service to every Rolls-Royce customer,” said James Crichton, Regional Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Europe. “The thousands of people who have joined us from around the world to witness the inauguration of this new showroom is testament to founders’ Paul and Andy Wood’s globally renowned reputation for engineering, craftsmanship and customer service excellence.”
