The Motorline Group has expanded its car dealership portfolio after acquiring two further Audi businesses.
It follows on from a deal in 2018 to acquired Inchcape's East Kent Audi operation in Canterbury.
Motorline now operates 55 dealerships across the country.
It employs over 1,850 staff with an annual turnover exceeding £800m and operates businesses across Kent and the south east, Thames Valley, south west, Midlands and Wales.
Motorline chairman Glen Obee, said: “We are delighted to have completed this deal, which continues our growth and investment on behalf of the Audi brand in the Kent territory.
"This investment will also be further supported by our new purpose-built Audi Terminal being developed in Canterbury opening in early 2020, which will further enhance the class leading facilities we will offer to all Audi customers new and old with what will be an outstanding, state-of-the-art experience.
"Our pursuit of the very highest standards and proud history of operating in the Kent area provides the ideal foundation for us to deliver even greater success for the Audi brand throughout the Kent territory."
The corporate team at Kent lawyers Thomson Snell & Passmore, led by partner and head of corporate, Joanne Gallagher, advised the Motorline Group on the acquisition.
