Sinclair Volkswagen Swansea has officially opened the brand’s biggest UK showroom.
After two years of planning and 9 months building the £4.5M showroom on the edge of the city’s SA1 business district welcomed more than 400 guests including VW UK Brand Director Robert Hazelwood.
Wales rugby legend Ieuan Evans compered the evening along with Welsh National Opera singer and tv-star Wynne Evans and the audience was treated to music, food and an unusual art installation created during the night by Ian Cook and which will now go on permanent display in the showroom.
The building is constructed around a glass atrium and can display 17 models at once with many more used models on site.
Over 60 are employed there and this year the dealership expects to deliver 1,500 new cars, a 20% rise since 2012.
