Cool Cars & Great Deals

Welcome to my latest Cool Cars and Great Deals, or should that just be Welcome Back?

After twelve long weeks of Lockdown, we cannot wait to open the doors of Giltrap Group dealerships across Auckland next Wednesday. There are some great cars to see and drive, including the stunning machinery on my latest list of Cool Cars and Great Deals.

We will continue to take every possible precaution to keep you safe, including a request for only double-vaccinated staff to be at work. Contactless service is still available.

As we are getting back up to speed, the automotive world is already going flat-out, with so much happening. This week on Giltrap TV and in cool cars, we feature the all-new Range Rover. It was no surprise that it is a great looking car, but I'll admit that the level of style and luxury is even better than I expected. 

When you combine that with the technology, Defender-like off-road capability and a range of more efficient engines, including plug-in hybrids and a fully EV version in 2024. The Range Rover remains the king of the jungle…and pretty much everywhere else!

Speaking of EV's, we feature the VW ID5, Polestar 2's arrival in Auckland and celebrate Emma Gilmour becoming McLaren Racings first-ever female driver. Hailing from Dunedin, Emma is an accomplished Rally driver both here and overseas. We look forward to seeing her as part of McLaren's Extreme E debut.

The timing of our re-opening is perfect, with the arrival of the Lamborghini Huracan STO. This car has wowed press worldwide, and we share the first New Zealand drive, and it's fair to say that Shaun quickly discovered why STO has been getting so many rave reviews.

Finally, I'd like to wish the Lamborghini Auckland team all the best for Movember; this is a worthy cause that Lamborghini is supporting right around the world. Along with growing their whiskers, from tomorrow, artist Marcus Watson will be turning a Lamborghini Huracan bonnet into an oriental art piece in the showroom at 119 Great North Road. When it is finished, it will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to Movember.

Enjoy these Cool Cars and Great Deals, have a fantastic weekend - and see you on Wednesday.
