Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to confirm the Zagame Automotive Group as its newly appointed dealer for Melbourne, Victoria, in Australia.
“I am very pleased to welcome Zagame Automotive as our authorised partner,” said Asia Pacific Regional Director, Paul Harris. “Bobby Zagame has established a luxury automotive company with an excellent track record and is highly regarded in Melbourne’s business community through the Group’s hospitality, property and investment portfolio. His passion for the automotive business and service philosophy is truly in alignment with the standards expected by Rolls-Royce customers.”
“At the same time, I wish to thank Trivett Bespoke under Inchcape for its excellent guardianship of the brand in Victoria, and I look forward to our continued business momentum with the Rolls‑Royce Motor Cars dealership in Sydney,” he added.
Bobby Zagame, Dealer Principal for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Melbourne, said, “It is a distinct honour for us to be accepted as Rolls-Royce’s latest dealer partner in Australia. We have always been passionate advocates of Rolls-Royce motor cars and are fully committed to providing exceptional experiences for our discerning customers.”
Zagame’s acquisition of the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Melbourne dealership sees a seamless transition with familiar faces continuing to serve customers. Bobby Zagame’s experienced, frontline team is headed by General Manager Terry Knight, Brand Manager Christopher Hope and Aftersales Manager Brad Poulter.
Zagame is a New Dawn for Victoria
At a ceremony to inaugurate the transition of dealer ownership to Zagame Automotive, the new Rolls-Royce Dawn was presented for the first time in the State of Victoria.
Rolls-Royce’s designers created a cabin that conveys all the hallmarks of the brand’s peerless craftsmanship combined with a philosophy of effortless, yet invigorating driving experience.
True four-seater space
True to form, no compromise has been made to ensure the comfort and luxury of four adults who want to travel together in the pinnacle of style.
A highly contemporary, super-luxury Drophead, Dawn is an evolution of Rolls-Royce’s design language, with one clear objective; to make a car that looks as beautiful with its roof up as with it down.
The fabric roof, one of the largest canopies to grace a convertible car, operates in just over 20 seconds at a cruising speed of up to 50km/h with a French seam making Dawn one of the quietest motor cars of its kind on the road today.
The deck continues Rolls-Royce’s excellence in modern craftsmanship. Open-pore Canadel panelling traces the horse-shoe shape of the rear cabin, whilst the wood on the deck, which can be chosen to suit individual taste, flows down the ‘Waterfall’ between the rear seats, and around the cabin clothing the interior door panels – enticing an owner or passenger to enter Dawn.
Deliveries of the new Rolls-Royce Dawn to Australia commence in the second quarter of 2016.
Recommended Retail Pricing is from A$749,000* on the road.
Continued expansion in Australia
The success of Phantom, Ghost and Wraith in recent years, and now the arrival of Dawn, has drawn new customers to the brand. Rolls-Royce has confirmed that it is considering further expansion in Australia.
“We have had a customer base in South Australia for a number of years now. Already, we are receiving applications of interest from parties towards investing in a Rolls-Royce dealership,” said Paul Harris. “Australia is a strategic market for us where, over the long term, our customer segment is predicted to grow strongly.”
Currently, the brand is represented in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast.
