The sleek new look of King’s Lynn Volkswagen’s showroom transformed after an £750,000 investment was unveiled at a casino-style party night.
Invited guests, including Deputy Borough Mayor and Mayoress David and Linda Whitby, joined staff on Thursday to celebrate the launch of the state-of-the-art facility in Bergen Way, North Lynn Industrial Estate.
The new 300 square metre showroom has the capacity to display ten models from the Volkswagen range in addition to a dedicated handover bay.
Everyone also had the chance to see Volkswagen’s concept car the XL1, the world’s most fuel-efficient car.
The XL1 Volkswagen “car of the future” stands at just 45.4 inches tall with an aerodynamic look based on sports car design principles and has a record breaking combined fuel efficiency that is capable of 313 miles per gallon, the equivalent of a journey from London to Newcastle.
Austin Seales, brand manager at King’s Lynn Volkswagen, said: “The evening was a fantastic way of thanking everyone for their hard work and patience while the new showroom was built. The conceptual new building not only supports the brand’s new look it offers customers a contemporary shopping environment that is light, airy and relaxing.
“Throughout the construction programme, our aim has been to improve and enhance our customer’s retail experience. Operating out of a truly world class retail outlet, it is now the intention of every member of the King’s Lynn Volkswagen team to deliver the levels of service befitting of our working environment.”
