Cape Town is about to get another "investment" auto dealer as Crossley & Webb will open the doors to its massive showroom on Wembley Square in the city centre.
CAPE TOWN, South Africa - The trendy Wembley Square precinct will become the new home of the Crossley & Webb premier automotive investment destination with the launch of its 1400 square metre showroom.
According to the auto dealer, the historic red-brick building is currently being transformed into a world class investment grade auto-trading and lifestyle centre. The showroom will open its doors in October 2013.
Gareth Crossley and Bryan Webb are the masterminds behind this venture and both bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of supercar and classic car investments to local and international investors.
Co-founder Crossley said: “Crossley & Webb originated from of our joint experience and passion for investment motoring and desire to offer our clients as well as other investors a destination venue to access the ever increasing opportunities available in the market for classic and collectable vehicles as an alternative form of investment.”
The sales department will offer classics, sports cars and supercars traded both locally and internationally, as well as assistance on structuring the acquisitions, insurance and warranty products.
Webb said: “International trends, matched to our experience have shown that there is a rapidly growing local and international demand for selected classic cars, resulting in meaningful capital gains for our clients.
“Acquiring a classic can often be a passionate decision because the buyer just has to have it, however if the right car is bought and maintained, it will not only offer many hours of motoring pleasure but act as a real investment alternative. The detailed knowledge and reach of our team allows us to present specific propositions so that our clients can truly experience the joy of motoring.”
According to the founders the showroom and classic car clinic will become the hub for sports car and investment car enthusiasts. Webb said: “The clinic will offer modern upgrades and restorations for sought after classics as well as routine servicing for sports cars and supercars out of warranty.”
Crossley said there will also be a state of the art boardroom and meeting facilities and a designer Truth coffee bar.
Housed within the building will also be the local offices (one of eight in the world) of international supercar timeshare franchise - Ecurie 25.
Crossley said: “The decision to secure the South African franchise of Ecurie 25 was taken in order to balance Crossley & Webb’s overall product offering with a financially intelligent means of enjoying modern supercars.”
