Showroom turns gallery to host Terry O'Neill celebrity shots

Motor Village UK hosts Terry O'Neill exhibit

Celebrity faces appeared in abundance at Motor Village UK as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ flagship dealer showroom played host to a an exhibition of work from renowned photographer Terry O’Neill.

The showroom on Wigmore Street, London, is usually home to FCA’s range of Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Abarth and Jeep cars, but played host portraits of Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Amy Winehouse, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, and every James Bond actor from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig last week.

The preview, in partnership with Ransom Gallery and Monica Colussi, was an opportunity to focus on the Alfa range, in particular the new Alfa Giulietta.

Fabio di Prima, managing director, Motor Village UK, said: “We were delighted to host this venue with the legendary Terry O’Neill at our unique showroom, transformed into an art gallery for the night.

“It was an opportunity to present many of the cars from the FCA line-up, but mainly the Alfa Romeo range, with the spectacular 4C and, for the first time at Motor Village UK, the new Giulietta.

“The stunning design of many of Terry O’Neill’s pictures linked perfectly with the beauty of the Alfa Romeo cars.”

Terry O’Neill is one of the world’s most collected photographers and his work hangs in national art galleries and private collections worldwide.

For more than six decades, he has photographed the greats from music, film and politics.

Motor Village UK was chosen to host a preview of his work because of its central London position and unique design and space.
