Harrop Performance Centre becomes Simply Sports Cars Dealer


Following many years of support from the Lotus community around Australia, Simply Sports Cars are delighted to announce Harrop Performance Centre as their representative in Victoria.

Building on their all new, state of the art workshop facility within the Harrop HQ at Preston, VIC, the Harrop Performance Centre now offers Lotus specific aftermarket performance upgrades, track preparation and general servicing / maintenance.

Simply Sports Cars has begun sharing its extensive inventory of Lotus specific parts, knowledge and experience with the team at Harrop, allowing them to immediately engage and support Victorian Lotus owners the same way they do in NSW.

“As an OE supplier of superchargers systems to Lotus Cars, Harrop also has a proud history partnering with Simply Sports Cars (SSC) on their aftermarket Lotus supercharger systems. SSC is renowned for its Lotus performance excellence and the obvious synergies with Harrop Performance Centre in Melbourne create a great platform to deliver well engineered enhancements and service for Victorian Lotus enthusiasts” - Heath Moore (General Manager), Harrop Performance Centre

“The relationship between Simply Sports Cars and Harrop has always been strong from a technical and engineering perspective. After many years of collaboration on Lotus aftermarket supercharger systems it’s great to see the relationship with Harrop Performance Centre progress into something that Lotus owners in and around Melbourne can now experience first-hand. Harrop have made significant investments in their facility, resources and Lotus specific equipment which will provide Victorian owners a new SSC style hub for Lotus servicing and upgrades as well as Events” - Lee Knappett (Director) Simply Sports Cars
