Cool Cars & Great Deals

The tenacity shown so often by kiwis is coming to the fore at the moment. From finding smart ways to go about our lives during this testing time safely; to the determination, our race drivers have been displaying around the world.

On Monday, Scott Dixon will line-up on the front row of the Indianapolis 500. To say he has a good chance of claiming his second Indy 500 is a bit of an understatement. Dixon made an incredible start to the COVID-19 delayed season, with three wins in six races to lead the IndyCar series. I don't often say this…but I can't wait for Monday morning!  

Our feature car this week is something of a celebration piece; following Simon Evans impressive win of the Jaguar I-PACE eTrophy series. You can catch an interview with Simon (from his quarantine hotel) in this week's episode of Cool Cars. He talks about his thrilling run to the title, where after claiming three wins, he only needed to finish ahead of Sergio Jimenez to wrap things up.  Still, check out the highlights, and you'll see how nail-biting it was.

Giltrap Group is proud to have supported Evans in the eTrophy, not just because of his success, but because the racecar is pretty much the same as the road car. So the performance and handling you see on the track can be delivered (maybe a little slower) on the road. The series has also helped Jaguar further improve the range and performance of what was already a world-beating EV.

This Cool Cars features the Special Edition 007 Aston Martin DBS which is coming to New Zealand, see the DBX put to the test, the new Audi A3/S3 is revealed, and we have a stack of Cool Cars and Great Deals.

Stay safe and be kind.
