About the Giltrap Group
The Giltrap Group represent 17 of the most desirable automotive brands in over 12 dealerships across Auckland.
Founded by car-mad entrepreneur Colin Giltrap in the 1960’s, the Giltrap Group celebrates a strong commitment to customer delight and ‘hands-on’ personal service, and strive to live out the culture that Colin Giltrap created - a love for cars, people, motorsport and the local community. While Sir Colin continues his interest in the business and motor racing, sons Michael and Richard have overall management of the group. They have carried the culture that Sir Colin has created.
All our staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic; aiming to deliver exceptional service and igniting the passion of New Zealand motorists by inspiring more people than anyone else.
In the 1960’s we were one dealership in the hands of Colin Giltrap. Today the Giltrap Group is one of the strongest motor vehicle groups in New Zealand.
In 2012, Sir Colin accepted New Year’s Honours, having been made a Knight Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit - honoured for his services to motorsport and philanthropy by simply giving back and helping people achieve their goals.
As such, the Giltrap Group proudly support over 20 community organisations and charities.
Motorsport runs through our veins; it's part of our identity and heritage. We believe in furthering the NZ motorsport community and the success of our drivers.
Together with Sir Colin, we are passionate about supporting New Zealand motoring talent, in the hope that they will achieve international recognition.
