Cool Cars & Great Deals

Welcome to Cool Cars and Great Deals,

Once again, I hope you and your bubble are doing well. With our outside world limited to our neighbourhood footpaths and lining up at the local supermarket, the small screen really has become the window to the world. I hope that this edition of Cool Cars delivers the magic of the showroom.

That said, the big screen also beckons, with confirmation that the 25th James Bond movie: No Time to Die will be released in New Zealand on October 7th. As a life-long Bond fan, I cannot wait, especially for the cars. Aston Martin is as much a part of 007 as a Saville Row suit, and there will be more than one Aston Martin featuring in No Time to Die; including a Valhalla.

There is a link to a great James Bond/Aston Martin video on this week’s Cool Cars, along with the F1 Edition Vantage at Aston Martin Auckland.

Speaking of F1, the rained off Belgian GP is best forgotten, but there was still some Motorsport action worthy of mention, with young kiwi Hunter McElrea bursting into Indy Pro 2000 series title contention with a stunning weekend in New Jersey. We feature both Hunter and Formula E star Mitch Evans on Giltrap TV, with Mitch finally able to talk about his heartbreaking finish to the season in Berlin.

Please enjoy this edition of Cool Cars, and remember all Giltrap Group dealerships are ‘virtually’ open.

Have a great weekend, and go the All Blacks!
