A Ferrari dealership in Hampshire has been awarded the prize of the best in the world by the Italian marque.

Merdien Modena in Lyndhurst, Hampshire, which was renovated two years ago, took the approvals at the Ferrari Annual Dealer Conference at the Yas Marina F1 circuit in Abu Dhabi.

In acknowledgement of the success in a competition among all official Ferrari merchants globally, Meridien Modena was presented with an engine from a 458 Italia, which won the International Engine of the Year Award in 2011, 2012 and 2014.

The showroom was refurbished in 2012 to showcase the Prancing Horse’s latest business character, which was first presented in 2010 and has now been introduced throughout the dealer network in all marketplaces.

The Best Car Dealership

Francesco Balli, provincial director for Ferrari North Europe, said: “It is fantastic to see a dealership in the UK recognised as the best in the world, and it is a testament to the strength of the partnership between Meridien Modena and Ferrari that their investment in refurbishing such an iconic location has been recognised.

“Ferrari is committed to providing the highest level of customer care and we look forward to seeing the 458 Italia engine on display here in Lyndhurst as I know we have many enthusiastic clients in the area who will be proud of the dealer’s achievements.”

The new up-to-date outlet also features a new waiting room, devoted handover inlet, and a fully-detailed “Atelier”.

The Atelier is shaped after a facility at the factory in Maranello, where patrons can select from a range of choices to personalise their new car.
