Braehead site earmarked for new Ferrari dealership
New plans have been submitted to base Scotland’s second Ferrari dealership in Renfrewshire.
Sytner Group has applied to Renfrewshire Council for full permission to develop ‘Ferrari Glasgow’ at the former Infiniti site in Braehead. The site closed earlier this year after Nissan’s luxury vehicle division withdrew from western Europe at the end of March.
Ferrari has a dealership in Edinburgh that is run by Graypaul, which is also part of the Sytner Group.
Sytner’s plans include valet/workshop buildings to service and MOT vehicles, as well as make external alterations and reconfigure the car park. There is also a proposal for outline permission for a jet wash building.
A decision is expected by the end of the year.
Councillor John Shaw, who represents the area, said the plans were already attracting plenty of attention.
He told the Glasgow Times: “The planning application has certainly generated a lot of interest as it’s just a wee bit out of the ordinary.
“I welcome the jobs and opportunities the new facilities will bring to the area if approved, but sadly I’m not sure my used Ford is going to stack up as a trade-in.”
