Visitors to London will now be able to travel around the city in even greater luxury, thanks to two new additions to the H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive fleet.

Due to the immediate success of the H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive division, and significant customer demand for even more luxurious vehicles, the fleet has now been further enhanced by the addition of the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase and Rolls-Royce Phantom Extended Wheelbase.

The service has proved particularly popular with oversees visitors to the Capital, with customers from the Far East and around the world demanding the ultimate in interior luxury to make their trip to London truly special.

These two new models mean they are also able to enjoy unparalleled levels of space in the rear seats. The Extended Wheelbase version of the Ghost offers 170mm more room than the standard model, while the Phantom has a full 250mm more space, meaning there is no roomier way to escape from and travel around the busy streets of London.

The two new cars join a luxurious fleet, with H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive customers also able to choose from a Maserati Quattroporte and a Bentley Flying Spur. Prices start at just £395 a day for the Quattroporte, translating to an hourly cost of £65 for an eight-hour period.

Prices for the Chauffeur Drive service:

Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB – Day Rate [8 hours]: £895.00 / Hour Rate: £135.00

Rolls-Royce Ghost EWB – Day Rate [8 hours]: £695.00 / Hour Rate: £95.00

Bentley Flying Spur – Day Rate [8 hours]: £595.00 / Hour Rate: £85.00

Maserati Quattroporte – Day Rate [8 hours]: £395.00 / Hour Rate: £65.00

All H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive cars are current models and are driven by personal and trained drivers. It was only launched in November 2015 and has already seen a high level of demand.

H.R. Owen Special Projects Director Sharon Wright said: “H.R. Owen Chauffeur Drive has proved a phenomenal success since it launched late in 2015, with customers appreciating both the luxury and convenience that the service brings. Demand for the service has exceeded all expectations and as a result we have increased the fleet with two brand new Rolls-Royces, highlighting the fact that only the latest cars are available on our fleet.

“Because of H.R. Owen’s position as the largest luxury dealer group in the country, it is uniquely placed to be able to offer the very latest in luxury models as part of this service and to buy.”

The phenomenal success of Chauffeur Drive has also been reflected by increased interest in H.R. Owen’s dealerships in London and beyond.

Chauffeur Drive is just one example of the full-service approach that H.R. Owen dedicates to its clients. The H.R. Owen Group not only operates in sales and service of premium cars, but it also offers a number of related divisions in the dealership, including Luxury Hire and Insurance Services alongside the recently launched H.R. Owen Classic Cars division. More services are also planned for later in 2016.
