Ginetta has today confirmed that an all-new supercar is on the way.

Full details will be announced soon, with highlights including a carbon fibre tub chassis, full carbon fibre body, race-derived 600+bhp (around 447kW) naturally aspirated V8 alloy engine designed and manufactured in-house, sequential gearbox and race-derived aerodynamic package.

Leading race technology

Ginetta has a long history of manufacturing lightweight, high-power road cars to production-based race cars such as the G55 GT4 (producing almost 400 to date, more than any other global manufacturer) and competition cars for the highest level of prototype racing.

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.

"We’ve come a long way in 60 years but we still believe Ginetta has great untapped potential," commented Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson.

"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," he added.
