May 2018 Hippo Prestige Showroom Tour
Our cars and showroom were recently featured on The Real Housewives of Cheshire. The show, which follows a group of affluent housewives living in the Cheshire area, documents their every move and luxurious lifestyles. We were lucky enough for some of these wonderful ladies to grace us with their presence, cameras and all, to have a look around the Hippo Prestige Showroom at Hippo HQ at some of our current stock and supercars.
If you live near the Blackburn area, perhaps in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool or Preston, we cordially invite you to come and follow the clicks of the ladies’ high heels, and take a stroll around our forecourt and test drive any of the cars we have in stock right now. There’s definitely something wonderful about touching, feeling and even smelling your potential new car, gripping the steering wheel and sitting in the driver seat to see how you feel behind the wheel. We are open all week, and you can pop in any time before 17.30pm (16.00pm on Sundays) to meander around and get to know the car you are about to buy first.
If you don’t live close to the showroom or you simply don’t have the time, we won’t let you miss out. We have put together some information on the cars we currently have in our showroom, so you can virtually ‘walk’ around our showroom, from the comfort of your own home. With our new showroom tour, we will take you for a guided journey around each car we have in stock, giving as much information as possible and giving an insight on the exterior, interior and more. Matching this with the full specs online will allow you to see the car from home, like never before. We feel that with this new virtual tour of our showroom, you’ll get a much better sense of the car that you’re interested in.
As a prequel to our showroom tour, we wanted to firstly give you a little information about us, Hippo Prestige, in case this is your first experience with us.

WHAT CARS ARE IN STOCK AT HIPPO PRESTIGE SHOWROOM
Head to our website to view the full range, but here’s just a handful of what we have in stock at the moment;
The 2017 Mclaren 570 GT was McLaren’s first and successful attempt at a touring car. Not diverting too far from the 570S it’s still got all the components of the McLarens we know and love; but with a slightly softer, subtle and more humble edge. It drives better and its exhaust doesn’t give off the usual boom. It’s heavier due to extra luggage space and sound softening material, but it’s still ridiculously quick with 562 bhp and 442 ft-lb torque. Did McLaren successfully build a touring car? Yes, yes they did.
We have great pleasure in offering this 2016 Lamborghini Huracan Avio LP610-4 finished in Matte Grigio Vulcano paintwork with orange livery and Black leather and alcantara L-63 embroidered upholstery. It’s a limited edition Avio and 1 of just 250 made in the World. Rather than adding aero-enhancing body-kits, this set of special edition Lamborghinis was all about special exterior paints and finishes that were named after coats of arms in the Italian Air Force Academy. A closer look under the hood shows that the Avio is identical to the standard Huracan LP 610-4. Its 5.2 litre V-10 sends 571 bhp and 398 lb-ft. of torque to the wheels, and it can get from 0-62mph in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 202 mph. Hold onto those embroidered seats! Let this short clip of Hippo’s Lamborghini Huracan Avio LP610-4 be the most beautiful thing you’ve watched all day.
The only Ferrari we have in stock, at the moment, comes finished in Rosso Corsa with Cuoio interior with Scuderia shields, a glass engine cover, carbon dash, electric Daytona seats, embossed headrests, extended leather, Becker navigation, CD Multi-Changer and more. Interestingly it was a Ferrari Owners Club Car so it has exceptional specialist service history supplied new by Ferrari concessionaires HR Owen, with supporting documentation and invoices.
Another absolutely superb car; fast and punchy with its 5.9 engine, 420 bhp and 420 lb – ft. torque, it roars like a lion but then purrs like a pussy cat when idle. Although it’s nearly 10 years old, it’s done just 7884 miles with one careful owner from new. It’s got full service history; original purchase invoice, copies of all bills, MOTs and tax discs and will have a full Aston Martin service prior to sale.
Finished in Storm Black with Obsidian Black trim with Piano Black Fascia 20” alloy wheels, we can see why this Aston Martin the car of choice for James Bond in Casino Royale.
We have about 7 Porches on site at the moment including the very nice Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid PDK (2017) and a nearly new Porsche Macan Gts Pdk (2018). However, since its convertible season, we’ll feature the Porsche 718 Boxster S PDK we have in stock. It’s stylish in Agate Grey with red and black leather trim, has had just one owner from new and has clocked just 11,657 miles.
Porsche exchanged the flat-six engines common in its newer models, in favour of a smaller flat-four engine, reminiscent of Porsches first ever sports car on the market. With the same tech used on the 911 Turbo S, it boasts 345bhp with a punching 310 lbs-ft. torque, it can get to 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds.
