Bowker Ribble Valley – Prestige Car Passion in Lancashire

Michael Smallbone from Live Ribble Valley Magazine visits one of the region’s most prestigious car showrooms, where he spots a magnificent ultra-rare Lotus Exige.

With blossom on the trees, the days lasting longer and spring lambs in the fields our minds begin to fill with thoughts of the approaching summer time. Here in the Ribble Valley we are able to see the signs of summer everywhere and what better way to enjoy them from the exciting driving seat of a sports car?

The now well established Bowker Ribble Valley dealership on the A59 at Osbaldeston offers a wide selection of vehicles from a range of prestigious manufacturers such as Porsche, Land Rover, Mercedes, Lotus and Aston Martin. Plus, the recent addition of the Maserati dealership that operates in perfect harmony at the same premises. Each car that Bowker Ribble Valley supply is more than likely to be something you don’t see every day, for instance when I was there I got the opportunity to see a magnificent, ultra-rare Lotus Exige in the showroom.

For extra peace of mind when you buy a car from Bowker Ribble Valley it will come with a comprehensive 12 month warranty through Warranty Wise – who have recently spent two days at the Osbaldeston showroom filming their latest national television commercial with Quentin Wilson.
