Giltrap Newmarket welcomes GMSV to Auckland

Nov 10, 2020

General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV) has officially launched with confirmation that Giltrap Newmarket, will be Auckland’s home to the brand.

While it is New Zealand’s newest automotive brand, but it also has a wealth of history in both this country and around the world. With true icons like Corvette and Silverado, General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV), will continue the 54-year relationship between Giltrap Group and GM.

To have truly exciting cars like the C8 Corvette coming in right-hand-drive is great news for Giltrap Group. Our very first dealership in Matamata represented General Motors, so it means a great deal to both our family and the entire Group to be able to welcome GMSV to our new Giltrap Newmarket site.

— Michael Giltrap, Joint Managing Director, Giltrap Group

The mid-engined Corvette is due in 2021 and will join the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 at Giltrap Newmarket. The 6.2-litre V8 powered truck is the go-anywhere towing titan, capable of hitching 4.5-tonnes.
