Learn more about Simply Sports Cars

The only Australian car dealership run by race engineers.

Simply Sports Cars was founded by Director & Engineer Lee Knappett in 2006 with an aim to import used Lotus cars from the UK to Australia. A delay in testing and granting of licences made Lee decide to put his Degree in Automotive Engineering to use and he assisted with racing circuit track support for drivers competing in the single-make Lotus race series running at the time. 

As with any race car, room for improvement was quickly identified on the Lotus Exige and that is how the development of Simply Sports Cars focus on high performance sports car products was born.

A dealership that
specialises in selling sports cars.

Simply Sports Cars is a local car dealership with locations in Sydney & Melbourne that specialises in selling sports cars for driving enthusiasts. Unlike other car dealerships, the heritage of Simply Sports Cars stems from its involvement with local motorsport including track days, targa tarmac rallies, endurance racing and production car racing.

It is the only high performance sports car dealership in Australia that will encourage & support you to participate in track days, advanced driver training and other bespoke performance driving events so that it creates a lifestyle around using your car all year round. The team is often seen at racetracks in Australia like Sydney Motor Sport Park Eastern Creek, Wakefield Park Raceway, Phillip Island, Winton or even Sandown Raceway helping owners enjoy the performance levels an Elise, Exige, Evora or X-BOW can deliver.

High performance sports car
dealerships in Sydney and Melbourne​

As Simply Sports Cars’ reputation for designing products and offering services for Lotus sports cars like the Elise and Exige grew, news filtered down to track day enthusiasts and other high performance car owners who wanted quality servicing and repairs to be carried out by experienced professionals.

As a result, the team at Simply Sports Cars rapidly expanded and outgrew their original Balmain dealership location, forcing a move to Artarmon on Sydney’s North Shore. In 2013, the national importer for Lotus cars recognised the prominence of Simply Sports Cars within the Lotus community and granted exclusive dealership rights for the NSW.

Simply Sports Cars Lotus became the number one dealer for Lotus sports cars sales in Australia & were soon awarded the rights to be the National Distributor for Lotus with dealerships in Sydney & Melbourne.
