British car company Ginetta hasn’t released any new cars for some time now. They’re fixing that now with the new G40, an entry-level trackday car.
The car is designed to help young people enter motorsports without having to sell all their possessions, organs, and family members to gather the money. The car will be used in the Ginetta Junior Championship, a championship designed for teens who want to enter motorsports, as is the car.
Ginetta chairman Lawrence Tomlinson claims that the first batch of G40s was sold out even before the car was unveiled at the Autosport International show. This first batch is intended for those racing in the Ginetta Junior Championship. Ginetta will begin producing roadgoing versions in March.
The car comes standard with a FIA approved roll cage, so that you can race in various FIA series, as well as at trackdays. It has a fibreglass body, which houses a rear-wheel drive layout and a front-mounted Ford Zetec 1.8L engine, modified to output 150 bhp. This equipment results in a weight of 840kg, and performance stats of 0 – 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, and a top speed of 140 mph. Pricing starts at £25,000.
As you can see, only a couple of pictures are available, but we’ll update you if more are released.
