First deliveries of the new V10 Lamborghini Gallardo began in December 2003, for which Lamborghini London holds substantial forward orders. The company will deliver around 100 Gallardo units during 2004 from its London showroom.
H.R. Owen will open a second Lamborghini sales and service dealership in Manchester later this year, winning an additional allocation of vehicles for the outlet. H.R. Owen Plc was awarded the Lamborghini franchise in the UK in 1999, which joined a range of additional Volkswagen Group franchises held by the group, including Bentley for London; five Audi dealerships; five Volkswagen outlets and one SEAT franchise.
