Alexander Campbell has pleaded not guilty to driving dangerously before a crash that killed teenager Sophia Naismith in Adelaide's west in June 2019.

The Elizabeth North man was driving a Lamborghini when he struck the 15-year-old and her friend Jordan Callea, and was charged with causing death and serious injury by dangerous driving.

He will reappear in court in May.

The two girls were hit by the Lamborghini Hurracan on the footpath in front of the House of Tien restaurant at Glengowrie on June 22, 2019.

Both were treated by paramedics, but Ms Naismith - of Seaview Downs - died at the scene while Ms Callea, a 15-year-old from Richmond, was rushed to the Flinders Medical Centre.

Mr Campbell's lawyer Craig Caldicott had previously indicated his client intended to plead not guilty.

Committal court hearings have focused on the type of tyres used by the car, and the driving mode it was in at the time of the crash.

More to come.
