The Giltrap Group

Founded by car-mad entrepreneur Colin Giltrap in the 1960’s, the Giltrap Group celebrates a strong commitment to customer delight and ‘hands-on’ personal service, and strive to live out the culture that Colin Giltrap created - a love for cars, people, motorsport and the local community. While Sir Colin continues his interest in the business and motor racing, sons Michael and Richard have overall management of the group. They have carried the culture that Sir Colin has created.

All our staff and knowledgeable and enthusiastic; aiming to deliver exceptional service and igniting the passion of New Zealand motorists by inspiring more people than anyone else.

We love cars. We love all cars. New cars, old cars, really fast cars. We love small cars, economical cars, family cars, supercars and little parts of cars. But more than that we love people, people who drive cars, people in the front seat, people of all shapes and sizes.
