Ginetta con­firms new su­per­car

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

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. 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 in West York­shire.
