The UK’s leading Lotus dealership today (Thursday 30 April 2015), became the first franchise dealership to offer the latest in high-performance, “quality” paint protection, “that actually makes a difference”.

Lotus Silverstone based at Silverstone circuit, the home of British motor racing, is now a Gtechniq Certified Dealership offering Gtechniq ‘Platinum’ paint protection, to Lotus owners old and new.

Matthew Haskins, Lotus Silverstone brand manager, said: “Gtechniq will enable us to finally offer the option of a quality paint protection that actually makes a difference.”

Gtechniq the creators of nano-based Smart Surface Science for cars, boats and aircraft, unveiled ‘Platinum’, an exclusive surface protection system designed specifically for use in car dealerships, last month.

The Gtechniq Platinum range includes the first ever dealership applied antibacterial interior protection with added Biocote® antimicrobial technology, along with durable protection for paint, glass and wheels. Customers also receive complimentary Gtechniq aftercare kit.

Matthew added: “We’re very pleased to be working in partnership with Gtechniq given their great reputation within the very specialist vehicle detailing communities.”

Rob Earle, managing director of Gtechniq, said: “It is great to have Lotus Silverstone in the passenger seat as our first franchise dealership.

“Unlike existing brands of paint protection, our Platinum Crystal Coat forms a strong chemical bond with a car’s paintwork. This gives a durable, UV and dirt repellent, scratch resistant defence and is guaranteed to protect the suave bodywork of a Lotus, or any car for that matter, for at least five years.”

Gtechniq is offering complimentary certified training to dealerships who wish to offer customers the best finish on their new car. As a ‘Certified’ dealership Lotus are authorised to apply Gtechniq coatings correctly, and prep the car to the high Gtechniq standard.
