British marque Ginetta confirms it will be in attendance at Salon Privé 2013 with the G40R and the G60.
Possessing over 50 years experience in race engineering and racing itself, the Ginetta name has become synonymous with performance automobile manufacturing. Ginetta’s two road cars, to be displayed at this September’s Salon Privé, illustrate the manufacturer’s diversity in terms of car production.
In 2005 Ginetta was taken over by enthusiast and racing driver, Lawrence Tomlinson, and within six months the G50 had been built. In 2006, Tomlinson and the Ginetta factory Team LNT entered and won the GT2 class of the Le Mans 24 hour race.
Ginetta won ‘Small Business of the Year’ from the Motorsport Industry Association in 2008, illustrating Tomlinson’s positive impact on the company, and Team LNT continue to be a dominant force in GT racing today, with their G50 GT4 & G55 GT3 models.
With both cars hand built in Yorkshire, the G60 is famed for its design features and performance specifications, the same you would expect of any modern supercar. Boasting a lightweight carbon fibre body and a 310 bhp power plant, the car delivers a 0-62 mph time of 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 165 mph.
In keeping with one of the main themes at Salon Privé, much of the technology behind the G60 is of a bespoke nature; the suspension for example has been completely designed in-house by Ginetta’s CAD team. Not only this, the ECU and harness wiring are tailor made for improved reliability and the driver’s position has been fully re-evaluated.
The G40R is of a different nature to the G60, however that is not to say the car is any less significant; as a road-going version of the famous Ginetta G40 sports car, it has the looks and specifications of a full on racing thoroughbred.
It only takes the G40R one second more than the G60 to reach 62 mph and has an impressive 200bhp. ‘A race car for the road,’ the G40R shares a number of characteristics with its G40 racing sibling, representing the culmination of Ginetta’s racing pedigree translated perfectly into a road car.
