Cool Cars & Great Deals

Welcome to Cool Cars and Great Deals,

It was a pleasant surprise to discover that the myriad of technical improvements to the updated Jaguar F-PACE, didn’t include the removal of the SVR’s amazing soundtrack. The supercharged V8 is intoxicating, and I really like that there is a button that allows you to add even more ‘snap, crackle & pop’ to the exhaust note.

This week, Shaun took a closure look at the new-look F-PACE SVR, and I’m not surprised at his reaction. That said, the new mild-hybrid straight-six with 294kW is winning plenty of fans as well.

Most of the improvements are on the inside, with some I-PACE inspired design and what I reckon is the best infotainment system around. The F-PACE was a worthy World Car of the Year when it was first introduced, and now it is even better.

Meanwhile, the latest World Car of the Year awards have just been announced, and we are really excited to know that another winner is headed our way, with the Volkswagen ID-4 winning the top prize. We can’t wait to welcome this award-winning EV to Giltrap Volkswagen.

Other big winners were the Porsche 911 Turbo (World Performance Car of the Year) and Land Rover Defender (World Car Design of the Year).

You will also spot the winners of our Starship Supercar Show Competitions on this edition of Cool Cars - congratulations! Thank you to those who attended and helped make it a $225,548 success for the Starship Foundation. We have also included a code for Cool Cars Subscribers for 20% off Harman Kardon Citation audio gear online with Spark. For every purchase Spark and Harman Kardon will donate 5% to the Starship Foundation. 

Finally, I want to pay tribute to all servicemen and women, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

All Giltrap Group dealerships will be closed on Anzac Day and on Monday 26th April.
