The business was born from a passion that Lionel Lewis and his wife Annalie Lewis had for the outdoors and off road industry. Not many people know that LA Sport stands for Lionel and Annalie Sport as they started the business together back in 1991 and being 50/50 partners in the business.

Lionel has been involved in the off road industry for many years. He used to build monster trucks over 20 years ago when the company was still called V8 & 4×4 Performance. His father was brought up around cars and now that he and Annalie have kids, the dynasty continues.

With that in mind we were privileged enough for our kids to be brought up in the outdoor and 4WD industry and we are proud to say that the legacy will continue as our children are also working in the business and are planning to continue on with it as we get older.

Lionel Lewis is also known for his special builds and with his knowledge in the automotive and wheel industry he has had the opportunity to build some serious off road vehicles. See below some of his builds he has completed. He is always ready for a challenge and can still be contacted for special off road builds.

507 Iveco Replica Dakar Truck build by Lionel and his team. He also drove the truck at events for Iveco.

LA Sport Monster Truck also known as MadDog build back in the 90’s and has been at all of the off road shows since then.

And his most recent build is the LA Sport Land Cruiser Dually – built for increased loading and towing capacity.
