About Us

Spirit of Italy was started July 2008, by Kjersti Groseth with Hans Sorensen.

Starting in the sportscar business in 1988, Hans Sorensen has worked with some of the biggest names in the business in England, Usa & Canada. With many years experience in the business, we offer todays customers quality advice and help buying, selling or fixing their cars.

We specialise mostly in Italian sportscars, but also offer our services and experience to other makes. Our main goal is too pass on our wealth of knowledge to sportscar owners so they can enjoy their cars and experience them as they were meant to be driven. For most people cars are a hobby. A hobby is for fun and enjoyment. When sportscars older or newer have faults, there is no joy owning a sportscar. We are determined to share our knowledge and years of experience allowing sportscar owners to fulfill their dreams of owning the sportscar of their choice and experience the full potential of their chosen car. There is no greater joy than seeing a customer with a smile enjoying their car.

Work experience since 1988 has involved many different aspects of the sportscar business. Everything from a small service to restorations to racecars. Sorensen has been fortunate to work with a wide variety of cars through his career. Ferrari as early as 1949 to present, carried out extensive engine and restoration work on numerous classic Ferraris, Lamborghini, Lancia Stratos, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and an assorted variety of other makes from around the world. 

On this team is Kjersti Groseth, long time car and offroad enthusiast. Kjersti will take parts orders for those wishing to buy parts and assist customers with any other inquieries they may have. Our main goal is focused on customer service and are always willing to go that extra mile to please our customers.
