GVE London has opened the UK’s first “full service” supercar showroom at a 20,000sq-ft facility offering the ability to maintain everything from a £1m McLaren P1 to an affordable hot hatch.
A 30 car showroom is backed up by a four-ramp service centre at the new showroom, in Uxbridge, which the independent operator had been created as a result of “listening to customer feedback and analysing market trends”.
A complete design audit was undertaken to create a clean and sterile environment, a statement said, adding: “For example, the purpose-built building has low ceilings so it’s less susceptible to dust and contamination and the LED lighting will uncover the smallest of imperfections.
“Not only does the detailing unit have capacity for five cars, but it also has an on-site PPF design studio fully-equipped with the latest software and cutting machines, allowing GVE to quickly and efficiently cut film to almost any car’s specification.”
GVE’s founder and managing director, David Rai, said: “GVE Detailing is all about quality, not quantity.
“It sounds cliché but everything we’ve installed into the new detailing centre has been thoroughly researched with an emphasis on quality. No other dealer has a specialist centre within their showroom like this. We go the extra mile, and having our in-house team and tools on-site mean that on average we can undercut the competition.”
The detailing centre itself has three ramps but technicians can also deliver a service for clients off-site at their homes or location of choice with a mobile valet team.
On average, GVE’s showroom will stock 30 supercars. Due to growing demand from customers, founder David Rai adapted the unit to also include a five-bay servicing centre earlier this year, as well as the recently launched detailing centre.
The centres now have a full-time team of six service and six detailing staff.
