Ginetta confirms new
BRITISH sports car company Ginetta has confirmed that an all-new supercar is on the way.
Full details are expected imminently, with highlights including a carbon fibre tub chassis, full carbon fibre body, race derived 600+ bhp naturally aspirated V8 alloy engine designed and manufactured in-house, sequential gearbox and race-derived aerodynamic package.
Leeds-based Ginetta has a long history of manufacturing lightweight, high-power road cars to production based race cars such as the G55 GT4 and competition cars for the highest level of prototype racing.
Ginetta says its new supercar will utilise this leading race technology and precision engineering to create a true driver's car.
And the firm stresses that this is not another supercar from a car company, but a supercar from a top-tier motorsport manufacturer.
Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson said: "We've come a long way in 60 years but we still believe Ginetta has great untapped potential.
"In the 1960s our G10 was a giant killer on and off the track, regularly beating Jaguar E-Types. Sixty years on, we're again applying knowledge and technology from our racing programmes to build an uncompromised yet utterly capable road-going supercar."
Founded in 1958 by the four Walklett brothers, Ginetta has a long and successful history of producing hand built road and race cars.
Beginning with the G2, enthusiast favourites such as the G4, G10, G12, G40 and G55 followed in a varied line up.
Acquired by Le Mans winner and entrepreneur Lawrence Tomlinson in 2005, the company is now known globally for its motorsport activities.
Ginetta operates a network of racing series, from nurturing young talent through the Ginetta Junior programme through to prototype racing such as LMP1.
Every car is hand built in a state-of-the-art factory just outside Leeds in West Yorkshire.
