H.R. Owen has created the ultimate customer drive experience, assembling over £3million-worth of supercars cars in a truly unique event at Millbrook’s proving ground in Bedfordshire.

 

The world-famous automotive development facility welcomed the very best of the H.R. Owen’s fleet, as prospective clients were treated to a day of adrenaline-fuelled, high-performance driving. H.R. Owen prides itself on providing the perfect environment for its customers to test cars, and heading to Millbrook, away from the congested highways gives clients the opportunity to experience a car’s performance capabilities in the safest possible way.

Only H.R. Owen could deliver the ideal day of high-performance testing for customers with the best and most desirable cars in the world, underlining its status at the world’s leading luxury dealer group. At the recent event, the one-of-a-kind BAC Mono single-seater supercar made a debut appearance under the control of H.R. Owen, and it was in very good company.

The incredible test drive line-up was composed of two Ferraris, including a 488 GTB, two Aston Martin DB11s, two Lamborghini Huracán Spyders and the Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge. Bentley’s stunning new Continental Supersports – the most powerful Bentley ever made – was also driven by prospective H.R. Owen customers for the first time. Two of the most desirable new SUVs in the world, the Bentley Bentayga and Maserati Levante, also hit the track and the off-road course.

Taking the total value of cars on the day past the £3million-mark were the Bentley Continental GT and Maserati Ghibli. Allowing clients to put cars through their paces in a safe, high-performance environment is a crucial part of the H.R. Owen equation – no dealership in the world understands customer needs like H.R. Owen, who always go the extra mile to provide the very best service.

Tom King, Marketing Director for H.R. Owen, said: “Enabling customers to sample these stunning cars away from the road is just another way that H.R. Owen cements its status as the number one dealer group in the world. Having our brands together in one place was a great experience, while Millbrook was perfect to really put the cars to the test. People come from around the world to experience the H.R. Owen way, and our group testing event with 16 of the best cars around sums up exactly why we’re the best.”
