Truck drivers targeted in safety drive
The world’s first second-hand Rolls Royce showroom has opened in Sharjah.
The showroom hosts a collection of previously-owned Rolls-Royce motor cars, such as the regal 2009 Phantom EWB and an eye-catching 2016 Orange Metallic with Burst Silver Bonnet Ghost.
But how much of a bargain will you get? Well, the Ghost would cost about Dhs1,650,000 new but can be snapped up secondhand for Dhs1,250,000, according to a sales representative.
Mamdouh Khairallah, General Manager of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars AGMC, the authorised Rolls-Royce dealer, said:”We are delighted to have opened the world’s first Provenance showroom, which will provide our discerning clientele with the opportunity to continue the journey of a Rolls-Royce that has been meticulously cared for and maintained at the highest level.
“The first of its kind, this dedicated showroom provides the unrivalled attention to detail, along with exceptional service which allows us to provide motor cars that are no different, and drive as beautifully as the ones leaving Goodwood today.”
The firm said the opening of the showroom is in line with the AGMC’s expansion plans for the region, which will include new launches, sales and service facilities and products for Rolls-Royce clients.
Customers who purchase a second hand RollsRoyce through the new Provenance showroom will get a minimum of two-year servicing and warranty cover.
They can also still add their own personal touches by choosing from Rolls-Royce accessories such as a gold or illuminated Spirit Of Ecstasy, Starlight Headliner, picnic basket, battery chargers, wheel rims and car covers. Abu Dhabi Police is carrying out a campaign to raise safety awareness among lorry drivers on the Abu Dhabi to Al Ghuwaifat Road. The Traffic and Patrols Department has designated several points at petrol stations and at drivers’ rest locations along the road from where they will issue advice, according to national news agency WAM. Major Suhail Sayah Al Mazroui, Chief of the Western Region Highways Section, urged motorists to adhere to designated speed limits, avoid overtaking, stop their vehicles when horizontal visibility levels reduce during fog or erratic weather conditions and adhere to the correct lanes while driving. He also reminded them that trucks are not allowed into Abu Dhabi City during peak hours. He explained that the awareness initiative focuses on serious violations and causes of traffic accidents that recently occurred in the Western Region and aims to provide advice about the importance of adhering to speed limits designated for trucks, in addition to the importance of using seatbelts. The awareness initiative includes distributing brochures in Arabic and English for drivers coming into or leaving the UAE.
