The UK’s largest Volkswagen showroom – Sinclair Volkswagen in Swansea – has opened.
Welsh stars, including rugby player Ieuan Evans and tenor Wynne Evans were there with more than 400 guests and staff from Sinclair Volkswagen on a ‘Big Night Out’ themed party to celebrate the official launch of the centre in the newly regenerated docklands, close to Swansea City centre.
The entertainment included well known opera singer and star of the ‘Go Compare’ TV adverts, Wynne Evans, special guest appearances from Jordi Amat, Alvaro Vazquez, Alejandro Pozuelo from Swansea City Football Club, Welsh Rugby International Ryan Jones as well as live music and dance performances.
The site is centred around a glass atrium with the capacity to display 17 different models from the Volkswagen range. In addition the site offers an enlarged Approved Used Volkswagen display and improved customer parking, as well as a 16-bay workshop.
Jeremy Phillips, brand manager at the dealership, said: "It’s taken almost three years of planning and construction but it has definitely been worth the wait."
"Throughout the construction programme, our aim has been to improve and enhance our customers’ retail experience. Operating from a truly world class retail outlet, it is now the intention of every member of the Sinclair Volkswagen Swansea team to deliver the levels of service that match our working environment."
