Giltrap Group displays new prestige models at CRC Speedshow


The Giltrap Group will present a comprehensive range of new models at this year’s CRC Speedshow in Auckland over the weekend of 19 and 20 July.

The group is a family-owned New Zealand business which represents 13 brands across 10 dealerships and group marketing manager Anthony Glover confirmed this week that the company’s display would include the new McLaren 650S supercar and the new Porsche Macan compact SUV as well as new and current models from Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentley and Audi.

Glover says that the line-up of other models would remain fluid until the eve of the show, meaning other new models across the company’s range of sports and luxury brands might also share the spotlight.

“What I can definitely confirm is that we will have examples of all our key models across our premier brands’ range at the show. But depending on what other vehicles we can secure there might well be more,” he says.

In previous years the company has exhibited marques individually. This year, however, they are grouped together under the Giltrap Group banner.

“As CRC Speedshow is dedicated to everything to do with speed,” says Glover, “We decided that we’d bring along some of the best/quickest sport/luxury vehicles in our line-up to highlight not only how varied our range of marques and models is, but also to showcase the differences in design and engineering excellence across the various marques.”

Glover says that each time a member company has exhibited at CRC Speedshow in previous years it has received excellent feedback – hence the group-wide commitment this year.

“CRC Speedshow is one of New Zealand’s premier automotive shows and as such provides us with a great opportunity to directly engage with enthusiasts who share our passion for the cars we import and sell. These are people who live and breathe cars and competition and we know, both from personal experience at previous shows and from the data we analyse afterwards, that you would have to go a long way to find a more committed, more passionate group.”

Spearheading the Giltrap Group presence at the show will be five new models:
· McLaren’s new 650S
· the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and the Aston Martin Vanquish
· the Bentley Continental GTV8
· Porsche’s new Macan SUV

For most show-goers it will be the first chance they have – in this country at least – to see most of these new models. It will be the first time, for instance, that members of the general public get to see the all-new Porsche Macan.

The CRC Speedshow runs at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland over the weekend of 19 and 20 July 2014.
