The Sytner Group has taken on the Aston Martin franchise for the first time with the opening of a new showroom in Nottingham.
The facility includes a 23-car showroom for new and Aston Martin ‘Timeless’ approved used cars.
Aston Martin now has a network 20 dealerships in the UK plus two service centres in Ipswich and Bovingdon. The network sold 906 cars in the UK in 2016.
Dan Balmer, president, Aston Martin UK and South Africa, said: “We are pleased to welcome the Sytner Group into the Aston Martin family and congratulate them on creating such an outstanding dealership in Nottingham.
“We are confident the passionate and dedicated Aston Martin Nottingham team will draw upon their extensive experience within the automotive industry to provide exceptional service to our valued customers in the Nottingham area.”
Darren Edwards, managing director of Sytner Group, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Aston Martin, a marque with such a prestigious history.
“The opening of our new facility will showcase an extensive range of new and “Timeless” pre-owned models, a dedicated customer specification and handover lounge incorporating “Q by Aston Martin” and state-of-the-art aftersales facilities.
Sytner is rated two in the Motor Trader Top 200 with annual turnover of £4.2bn. It expanded its operations significantly in January this year with the acquisition of Carshop.
