One lucky Bristol schoolboy has been given the most prestigious drive home from school imaginable thanks to a local luxury car dealership.
Car-fanatic Ollie Vanstone, aged 9, wrote to the new Rybrook car showroom at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol to ask if he could sit in one of the ultra-premium brands stocked there.
Little did he know that Rybrook would get in touch with his school and parents to arrange for him to be picked up from school in a Lamborghini Huracán and a Bentley Flying Spur.
Opened this summer, the new Rybrook facility features four of the most prestigious automotive brands; Bentley, Lamborghini, McLaren, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, plus a first floor Rybrook Specialist Cars showroom. It is the first car showroom in the UK to bring new models from these four carmakers under the same roof.
The new state-of-the-art facility is situated at The Laurels, Cribbs Causeway and is set to become the desirable destination for customers searching for the ultimate vehicle. Responsible for sales and servicing across the whole South West of the UK, Rybrook in Bristol will serve customers from an area of more than 12,000 square miles from Lands’ End, through Wales and up to the Cotswolds.
The Huracán and Flying Spur whisked Ollie, his brother Ben, and friends Lauchie Young and Sid Scanell away from St Ursula’s E-ACT Academy in Westbury-on-Trym and took them to the showroom, causing quite a stir on the way with their combined 1,218 horsepower.
Once at the facility, they were given a tour of the various luxury cars and brands that will be displayed in the showroom including a £549,849 Lamborghini Aventador SV.
At the end of his incredible after-school trip, Ollie said: “This has probably been the best day of my life. I love supercars, and the Lamborghini Huracán is my new favourite car in the world!”
Mark Borwick, Rybrook’s Head of Business, added: “It has been a pleasure to host Ollie and his family and friends at Rybrook. A lot of the time, supercars are only ever associated with the rich and famous, but there’s no reason you can’t be captivated by them even if you can’t yet own one.
“It’s exciting to be able to open this Rybrook showroom in Bristol, and we hope that just like Ollie, everyone who walks through these doors will be equally amazed by the incredible cars we have on sale here.”
