Premium car-maker Infiniti has officially opened its latest outlet in Norwich, delivering new standards of exclusivity, excitement and customer care to motorists across East Anglia.

Infiniti Centre Norwich, part of Desira Group in Vulcan Road North, was declared open at a glamorous launch party attended by dozens of invited guests and VIPs.

Centre of attention was the awe-inspiring Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 car driven to glory by reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel, which remained on public display at the dealership throughout last weekend.

Guests were also able to view and test-drive models in the Infiniti line-up, including the Infiniti FX Vettel – a special limited edition version of the brand's luxury QX70 sport utility vehicle developed by the F1 champion in his role as Infiniti's director of performance – and the new Q50 premium sports saloon.

The event raised nearly £500 which was increased to a total of £1,000 by Desira Group with all funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, the centre's chosen charity.

'Infiniti has a very bright future ahead of it in the UK and being one of the first Infiniti Centres is a real source of pride.

'The fact so many people joined us at the opening, and the reactions they gave, clearly show there is an appetite for Infiniti's unique offering in this area.'

Speaking at the launch event, Steve Oliver, Infiniti's regional director for northern Europe, added: 'Although Infiniti is a brand still in its infancy in the UK and in Europe, it has been going for over 25 years in the United States.

'But with our youthfulness comes excitement and you can see that clearly in some of the things we're involved in such as the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team and halo model's like the Infiniti FX Vettel.'
