simply 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 and a focus on track day activities. You can buy a sports car in either the Sydney or Melbourne Dealership and then receive the support (and encouragment) to participate in track days, driver training programs, Targa Rally events and other bespoke performance driving activities.


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.


In 2006, Simply Sports Cars was founded by Director & Engineer Lee Knappett in Sydney, 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 assist with track support for some of the competitors in the single-make Lotus race series running at the time. As with any race car, room for improvement was quickly identified on the Exiges, and so the development of Simply Sports Cars line of performance products was born.


As Simply Sports Cars' reputation for designing products and offering services grew, news filtered down to track day enthusiasts and other road car owners who simply sought quality servicing and repairs, carried out by experienced professionals.

As a result, the team at Simply Sports Cars rapidly expanded and outgrew their original Balmain home, forcing a relocation 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 territory to Simply Sports Cars.

Twelve months later, Simply Sports Cars Lotus became the number one dealer for Lotus sales nationally and soon after moved into the purpose-built facility in Artarmon. Fast forward to 2020 and Simply Sports Cars are not only the Australian Distributor for Lotus sports cars like the Lotus Elise, Lotus Exige & Lotus Evora but have also taken on the exhilarating KTM X-Bow sports car vehicle range too that are available for sale in either Sydney or Melbourne.


Run by race engineers the focus is to sell, service & create a lifestyle around sports cars for people who love driving, on the road or race track. Simply Sports Cars is a local car dealership that sells sports cars, upgrades and modifications for any performance driving need. Whether that be for your new or used vehicle, a routine service for your pride and joy or a full competition race car build.
