Trevor Finn shaking hands with James Crichton

We are delighted to announce that Rolls-Royce Motor Cars have chosen Leeds to be the location for its next, all-new showroom, under the management of our premium car retailer, Stratstone.

As the super-luxury brand's eighth dealership in the UK, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Leeds will serve customers across the North of England, offering both new and Provenance Pre-Owned Rolls-Royce vehicles, in addition to full aftersales services.

Following a strong start for 2017, the new franchise represents our significant investment and continued expansion for the Stratstone business. This move complements our used car growth plans and continuing expansion of our Evans Halshaw franchises, with the development of 40 new Car Stores well underway.

With construction of the purpose-built showroom set to commence later this year, a number of new jobs across customer service, technical and leadership will be created in the area, once the site is operational.

James Crichton, Regional Director, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Europe, comments:

"Rolls-Royce Motor Cars takes great care in selecting dealer partners. Our partnership with Stratstone will help us deliver sustainable growth in our home market, while meeting customers' expectations of the unparalleled service that Rolls-Royce is famous for. Stratstone is one of the leading motor car retailers in the country, and is the right partner for Rolls-Royce as the company seeks to meet the demand for super-luxury motor vehicles in this part of the country."

Trevor Finn, Chief Executive of Pendragon PLC, comments:

"The opening of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Leeds represents a significant investment for Stratstone, reflecting our confidence in the opportunity for Rolls-Royce across the North of England. This is the first time that Rolls-Royce has had a showroom in the area, but Stratstone is well established here and is a trusted name.

"Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a marque synonymous with the best of British luxury, which we believe will perfectly complement our Stratstone Business. This is an excellent opportunity for us to continue to diversify our business and will help to deliver long term sustainable growth."

We are honoured that Stratstone has been selected to bring Rolls-Royce to the North of England, signalling the brand's confidence in the continuing success of the British economy.
