Ginetta G57 Will Make Public Debut At London’s Autosport International

Ginetta may be a small British car manufacturer, known only to a handful of aficionados, but the company apparently wants to leave a mark in the racing world.

The affair between Ginetta and motor racing isn’t new, as the firm produced lightweight racing-models for enthusiasts, sponsored aspiring drivers with fully funded seasons in the Ginetta Junior Championship, and – according to them – manufactured the fastest LMP3 car in the world.

Now, the firm will debut its latest creation – the all-new G57 prototype racer – at London’s Autosport International, Europe’s premier, pre-season motorsport Show, this January, as Lawrence Tomlinson, Chairman of Ginetta, said:

“Myself and Ginetta are delighted to be launching the G57 at Autosport International this January, the show represents the ideal place to introduce our latest model to the public and celebrate the continued success of the Ginetta Motorsport Ladder. If you want to try a Ginetta, we’re also going to be entertaining fans with Ginetta Thrill Rides at the ever-popular Adrenaline Zone so don’t miss out!”

Revealed by the manufacturer not so long ago, the G57 sits on a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with a carbon crash box and FIA-approved steel rollcage for maximum driver safety. 580 hp of pure grunt, from a LS3 6.3-Litre V8, is sent to the back wheels through a six-speed sequential transaxle gearbox from Xtrac. Add an unrestricted aerodynamic package into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a very capable racing prototype, eligible, configurable and felxible for highly competitive sports car racing around the world, suiting a wide range of driver grades.

The public launch also marks the start of Ginetta’s intention to increase exports of its model range.
