Ginetta is about to unveil a road-legal supercar, will full details to be announced soon. Until they do, they gave a few insights about their upcoming model, which will utilize a carbon fiber tub chassis and a full carbon body.
Powering it will be a naturally aspirated V8 that’s been designed and built in-house. The unit will put out in excess of 600 horsepower and will be linked to a sequential gearbox.
“We’ve come a long way in 60 years, but we still believe Ginetta has great untapped potential”, said 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 programs to build an uncompromised yet utterly capable road-going supercar.”
Accompanying the announcement are a couple of teaser images that preview the supercar. Its design seems to have been heavily inspired by the G55, a track weapon unveiled at the end of 2010 and powered by a Ford-sourced 3.7-liter engine rated at 370 horsepower.
The Leeds-based company didn’t say when they will officially reveal the yet-unnamed machine. However, scrolling through the Geneva Motor Show website, we found that Ginetta is one of the exhibitors that will be present at the event that’s a little over a month away from kicking off. So, we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw it at their stand.
