Images of the new hand built Ginetta supercar are as yet limited to a teaser, and no more technical information is available.
Acquired by Le Mans winner and entrepreneur Lawrence Tomlinson in 2005, British sports car manufacturer Ginetta is now known globally for its motorsport activities, operating a network of racing series, from nurturing young talent through the Ginetta Junior programme through to prototype racing such as LMP1.
Ginetta Cars by the British specialist builder of racing and sports cars based in Garforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire has a long history of manufacturing lightweight, high-power road cars to production based race cars such as the G55 GT4 (producing almost 400 units) and competition cars for the highest level of prototype racing.
“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,” explained Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson.
Highlights of the new Ginetta supercar include full carbon fibre car body, a carbon fibre tub chassis, race derived 600+ bhp naturally aspirated V8 alloy engine designed and manufactured in-house, sequential gearbox and race-derived aerodynamic package.
“The new supercar utilises this leading race technology and precision engineering to create a true driver’s car. This is not another supercar from a car company: this is a supercar from a top-tier motorsport manufacturer,” said the manufacturer in a statement.
