If you spend any time in London’s ritziest neighbourhoods, you might be used to seeing luxurious cars gracing the streets. But what you might not know is many of the city’s top cars are below the ground.
Windrush Car Storage offers “five-star hotel treatment” for vehicles in Central London and the Cotswolds in a luxury supercar garage below the ground.
The high-security, climate-controlled facilities are “immaculate” and demonstrate “meticulous attention to detail on every aspect in order to keep vehicles in the very best shape,” according to Windrush.
The company was founded in 2004 by Tim Earnshaw, who knew the importance of keeping his car safe and under surveillance from his time working for Ferrari Formula One.
The company now boasts two state-of-the-art storage centres — the newest one “in the thick of it in Central London,” while the original is in the countryside of the Cotswolds.
The company calls its facilities a “luxury spa for cars with talented and qualified staff pampering clients’ pride and joy with the utmost care and skill.”
Cars are subject to a full valet and detail service during their stay and are kept in a high-security, dehumidified, and climate-controlled environment with a connection to an automatic battery conditioner.
They are checked daily and are given a “soft, breathable cover.”
“Whatever the client request to Windrush, the answer is always ‘yes,'” it added.
“This is the very pinnacle of car storage in the UK; we treat cars as if they’re our own and make sure they are subject to the most luxurious service possible to keep owners’ minds at ease,” Earnshaw said.
“During my years at Ferrari Formula One, meticulous attention to detail was everything; and our staff work from the same play book,” he added. “They’re all RoSPA [advance driver] trained, too, which gives hundreds of car lovers the confidence to hand over the keys to their pride and joy.”
The types of cars in the garage include a McLaren P1, a Ferrari Dino 246GT, Bugatti Veyrons, a Jaguar XK120, a Lancia Delta Integrale, and even a Ford Capri 3.0S, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
The site also stated that is costs £480 a month to store a car in the central London facility, while the Cotswolds garage costs £270 per month.
However, Earnshaw said: “We welcome all kinds of cars and give every model the exact same attention, no matter what it is.”
