Proud to be on Historic grounds of Mercedes-Benz on Park Lane

We are proud to be on Park Lane.

When we first opened the BOB|FORSTNER showroom in 2009, we thought it was only fitting as to close the cycle and show presence on Park Lane, the street on which Mercedes-Benz opened it’s alleged very first showroom, in 1935 at Brook House on Park Lane.

Fast forward, the growing number and competition amongst dealerships allowed Normand (Mayfair) Ltd. to rise and become London’s largest Mercedes-Benz dealer in 1965, with having their showroom at 127 Park Lane which is the exact same location that we are in today. [1,2]
