Dealer H R Owen opens classic Ferrari service centre

Published 22 December 2015

H.R. Owen, the UK’s largest luxury car dealer, has opened a classic car service centre. The Ferrari main dealer can now service, repair and restore any Ferrari at its North London site.

Maranello-trained technicians can work on Ferraris of any age and the company is offering a range of fixed-price servicing options as well as bare metal restorations. The 22,000 square-foot facility boasts 22 dedicated work bays, an engine overhaul room, industry-leading diagnostic and repair equipment and a dedicated wet area.

Technical manager Attilio Romano is one of the many reasons why classic car owners return to H.R. Owen year after year. Starting his career in 1979, he entered the sportscar market in 1982 with Lotus and Lancia. Romano went on to work for many high-profile marques.

He most notably worked at Ferrari Modena and Bugatti, working for the latter when the EB110 was launched, before going on to be the first factory-registered technician certified to work on the Veyron. Romano has won a host of awards on behalf of many manufacturers, and has worked for H.R. Owen for more than 19 years.

The ex-Ferrari factory technician can diagnose and correct issues swiftly, based on his many years of Ferrari experience. From tuning the carburettors of a Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, to a full nut-and-bolt restoration of a 275 GTB.

Service manager Tony Vaccaro said, ‘We have looked after Ferraris from across the world for more than 40 years, and the cars that are now classed as classic were maintained by us when new. Having that experience in-house means we are best placed to look after any classic Ferrari as we know the cars inside out.’
