Automaker Plans to Roll out All-New Supercar 

Ginetta, a Europe-based manufacturer of high power road cars and production based race cars, , is set to roll out an all-new supercar.

As highlighted in a recent media release, the company is about to release detailed information about the car, highlighting 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.

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.

Chairman Lawrence Tomlinson commented: “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.

Acquired by Le Mans winner and entrepreneur Lawrence Tomlinson in 2005, the company is now known globally for its motorsport activities. Ginetta operates a network of racing series, from nurturing young talent through the Ginetta Junior programme (one graduate of which is McLaren F1Ô driver Llando Norris) through to prototype racing such as LMP1.

Every car is hand built in a state-of-the-art factory just outside Leeds in West Yorkshire. The company has continuously developed its technology and manufacturing capabilities, with the factory equipped with autoclaves, CNC machining capability and extensive design facilities. As a result, Ginetta now carries out more original engineering than any other UK car company of its size and has produced more GT4 cars than any other global manufacturer (over 400 to date).

Translating this expertise and manufacturing capability into an an all-new supercar, 2019 will see Ginetta return to the company’s roots in ultra lightweight, high-power road cars.
