London's HR Owen receives Ferrari Classiche approval
Well-known London supercar and luxury car centre becomes one of nine UK Classiche Officina specialists
The HR Owen Ferrari Service Centre in north London has been officially recognised by Ferrari as one of only nine authorised Classiche workshops in the UK, meaning it can implement the Classiche certification process to ensure factory-approved maintenance and repair of Ferraris over 20 years old.
The Service Centre’s new title of ‘Officina’ (Italian for ‘workshop’) is an important development for the company, at a time when the Ferrari factory is putting ever-more emphasis on Classiche certification, and with values of cars influenced by the presence of the certification.
The HR Owen site has 25,000 square foot of dedicated Ferrari space, with 22 ramps and 15 specialist technicians. Three of those ramps are devoted purely to classic and modern classic work, as are two of the technicians. It holds over £500,000 worth of Ferrari genuine parts ready to be deployed and fitted.
Owen Rothwell, HR Owen Ferrari Marketing Manager, said: 'It gives us great pleasure to be accredited as a Classiche Officina and further enhance our already excellent reputation in the classic car world. Being able to have the direct support of the Classiche department in Maranello means that H.R. Owen can continue to offer exemplary classic Ferrari servicing with the ultimate seal of approval from Italy. We’re excited to put our new strategy into practice and continue to give our customers the level of care they expect from both HR Owen and Ferrari.'
