In December 2019, The Penta Motor Group acquired a purposed built Nissan GT-R race car which was supported by Nissan SA in previous years. Although the car was still fully street legal and featuring the GT-R standard Instrument Panel and interior elements it had the abilities to be a pure bred race car.

However, no one had actually seen this car perform or knew it’s capabilities but there was something special about it…we decided to approach Reghard Roets to be our driver of choice since he was already synonymous with GT-R being a three time King of the Hill champion at the Simola Hillclimb in Knysna.

The latest & newest event on the SA sporting calendar would be our proving grounds, Reghard received an open entry from the Emerald Speed Festival organisers and this would be the ideal opportunity to introduce the underdog and probably one of the most talented drivers SA has to offer.

More customers walked into their local Suzuki dealer than ever before in February, leading Suzuki Auto to breaking its one-month-old sales record and giving Suzuki its best start to a new year ever.

The National Association of Automobile Manufacturers (Naamsa) reports that Suzuki Auto sold 1 696 vehicles in February, breaking the January 2020 record of 1 631 units and setting a new all-time record for the start of the year, in which the first two months of the year are traditionally combined to get a better idea of the projected sales trajectory.

“It is hard to believe that Suzuki Auto only broke through the 1 000-unit a month barrier in August 2017. Since then, we have broken our sales records multiple times while the overall market has continued to decline. We owe a debt of gratitude to our dealers for continuing to delight our customers and helping us to grow our Suzuki family,” says [...]

  1. Facebook Marketing
    Facebook is still one of the most widely used social media platforms – and for very good reason. You can target your consumers with tailored ads, links to your website, and sponsored content. For car dealerships, this could create a broader network of customers thanks to your existing client base sharing, liking and commenting on your content.
  2. Twitter Updates
    Unlike Facebook that relies on longer, more detailed posts to drive traffic, Twitter is a one-stop news and events platform that keeps your audience updated on your sales, events and news. Have a vehicle auction coming up? Tweet about it! More often than not, your audience will remember those short bits of information instead of simply scrolling past.
  3. The Power of Instagram
    Instagram might just be the best platform to target new and young drivers. You can create a narrative for your brand that’s transparent, engaging and customer-centric. While you might not sell thousands [...]
